Just a couple of notes here. Regarding question number 8,the pills themselves last one hour.In our mind we tend to think how long they last from when we take them until they run out.An example would be,take one pill every eight hours.Hence the dose lasts eight hours. This is not what the question is asking.It asks how long the pills would be in our possession. The answer is one hour. We take one at 1:00,then 30 min. later we take the next and 30 min. later,we take the last one. Considering the question and the way the pills are taken,they last one hour. The next note is regarding question 13. It is not asking WHO was president but what is the presidents name in 1960. The President is George Bush,Ike WAS a president but he is NOT 'the' president. The question asks what WAS the presidents name in 1960.It doesnt ask WHO was the president in 1960. Hence the correct answer is George Bush.

I disagree. The question asks "How long will the pills last?" Other views: The doctor has instructed one be take every half hour. Do you wait 30 minutes prior to taking the first one? The doctor did not intruct to take one now and then one every half hour after. Using this scenario, you would be on possession of at least one pill until 90 minutes later. This brings up another possiblity. After you take the first two pills, you will no longer have pills, but instead have a pill.

13. What was the President's name in 1960?
Considering that a President of the US retains the title President even after he is out of office, I would say the corect answer is "Which one?" [Razz] [Razz] [Razz] [Razz] [Razz] [Razz] [Razz] Don't you just love BITOG.com? We analize everything [Big Grin] If I counted the pill question as wrong, which I don't I still had 11 right. Number 13 also had another flaw. It doesn't specify which president. As a paramedic, "who is the president" is a common question to establish if someone is oriented or not. I used to work on a indian reservation. Many native americans answered this question with the name of the Seneca Nation of Indians Presdient and not the President of the United States.

The pills last one hour,the question didnt ask or state the duration or the length that the pills dosage would last,it only instructed the person to take one every thirty minutes. From the first pill to the second is 30 min. From the second pill to the third is 30 min. This means that all of the pills are taken within a one hour period. As far as the president,it is commaon sense(no offense to Native Americans,that when we refer to whom is president that wer are talking of the US president. It only stands to reason that when Jay Leno asks who is president that he is talking of the US and not of France etc.
 
This isn't worth arguing about. The question is vague, and therefore open to interpretation. The way you interpret the question, your answer is correct. The way I interpret the question, it is too vague, and therefore doesn't have a right answer. If Jay Leno was interviewing Agathe Sanson, and asked who the president is, he would probably get an answer of Jacques Chirac. [ January 21, 2005, 02:29 PM: Message edited by: medic ]

Unknown - the half life of the medication isn't given. But, assuming that the half life of the medication is 30 minutes, each pill would last 30 minutes. Take the first at 1 pm, it would last until 1:30 at whcih time you would take the second and so on. The final pill would last until 2:30 and therefore, the pills would last 90 minutes.
