QUESTIONS!!

01 -- You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. In what position do you finish? to overtake = yetişip geçmek...

02 -- Why can't a man living in İstanbul be buried in Karacaahmet?

03 -- Two men played five games of backgammon. Each man won five times. There were no ties. How come this is possible? backgammon /BÆK-GÆ-mın/ = tavla oyunu... tie = berabere bitme... How come? = Nasıl oluyor da?... [NOT: Yukarda verdiğim form, "How come is this possible?" şekline kıyasla çok daha yaygındır. İdiomatik bir uygulama kabul ediniz.]

04 -- Is it permitted in Islam for a man to marry his widow's sister? [İslam'da dul eşinizin kızkardeşi ile evlenmenize izin verilir mi?]

05 -- There was an airplane crash and every single person died; but five passengers survived. How is this possible? Uçaktaki "every single" = "herbir" kişi öldü, ama beşi hayatta kaldı. Bu nasıl olabilir?

AND THE ANSWERS ARE:--

01 -- You arrive second! If you have overtaken the second person and taken his place, you arrive second!

02 -- Because he isn't dead if he's LIVING.

03 -- The two men were NOT PLAYING EACH OTHER! They were playing different opponents. ["play with" mümkün fakat daha az yaygındır. Korkarım bunu "hissetmek" zorundasınız; bu farkı sözcüklere döküp izah etmekten acizim.]

04 -- The question is irrelevant. [=Kelalaka bir soru]. You must be dead if your wife is a widow.

05 -- These five passengers were married people. ["Single" aynı zamanda bekar demektir: "every single person" aynı zamanda "herbir bekar kimse" demektir. Oysa, evli yolcular hayatta kaldılar!]
