Ready     GO    !!! 

You overtake the second person.

What position are you in?

If you answered that you are first,

 then you are absolutely wrong!

If you overtake the second person,

you take his place, so you are second!

Second Question: 

If you overtake the last person,

then you are…?


~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~
