The Average Person Over 40 Cannot Do This!

The following was developed as a mental age assessment by the School of
Psychiatry at Kings College London.

Take your time and see if you can
read each line aloud without a mistake.

1. This is this cat.
2. This is is cat.
3. This is how cat.
4. This is to cat.
5. This is keep cat.
6. This is an cat.
7. This is old cat.
8. This is fart cat.
9. This is busy cat.
10. This is for cat.
11. This is forty cat.
12. This is seconds cat.

Now go back and read the third word in each line from the top down

😉 Have a great weekend 🙂

    Thank you for the wonderful test. You expanded my horizons greatly because I was to browse through my Lithuanian-English dictionary to grasp the meaning of all words on your 12 lines. Thus you helped me to forget the worry for my daily problems and enabled me to return the grateful smile.

    Great one! I laughed my ass off! Nothing like a good laugh on my day off! Thank you, But I guess I misread the last couple of words because I farted for forty seconds, the first time I read it. So are you buying me new underwear?
