So the question is this:
"5 hours ago it was as long after 2 as it was before 8 on the same day. What is the time now?"
I guessed 10 but the correct answer was 1. I can't grasp the logic behind that answer (unless I was meant to look at my system clock ;) )
Could anyone please explain this?

I just ran into this again, and correct answer is in fact the current system time. :popcorn:

Also, I was given a question 'Given the pair of words below, which one has the closes relationship to 'monkey' and there was : fish / aquarium.. And it came up that the correct answer was 'zoo' which hasn't been listed. What the hell ? :D

Yeah I had similar questions, the key is to follow the same logic given in those two words, for example (you can see) fish (in an) aquarium
so you can see "monkey" in a "zoo"
Kind of a tricky example there but I had a similar question like that:
"Given the pair of words below, which one has the closes relationship to 'stone'"
Words given were stick/float
so if "stick" "floats" the "stone" sinks so "sink" was the answer.
