How well can you do on this tricky quiz – find the answers below[/caption]

The challenge is made up of ‘lateral thinking’ questions, with a mix of maths skills, general knowledge and common sense needed to get them all right. 

The maker said: “You have a PhD if you score 10/10 in this IQ drill.

“I’ve only twice in my life come across someone with both high IQ and high EQ naturally; and that was because their parents were super high EQ, and the parents just EQ’d the hell out of them. 

“They’re inevitably very successful because now you’ve got someone who’s sharper than the average person and well-rounded, too.”

You’ll definitely need a pen and paper for this one, and Google won’t be able to help you on some of the questions, although you do have multiple choice. 

But if you’re stuck over the answers, fear not as we’ve included them below.
