Are you asking me to calculate that?

You are given no clues, no input except to throw you off. It defeats the purpose of the questions if any hints are given. This is a test for you and only you. Everyone takes it in their own way. You are measured by your response. You only have a couple of minutes.

I believe you are supposed to respond to it with the proper question.

You want me to find the appropriate question?

This thread does not look like a math thread, by the way.

True.

However, the sense in which I used "now" is non-specific time-wise; rather, it is "consequently". I'm not at all sleepy now, so if I went to bed now I definitely would not be able to sleep better.
