A Yes No Puzzle

This is not just math, but a very good test for linguistic reasoning. If you are serious about this test and think that you’ve a sharp [at least average] brain then read the statement (only) below –summarize it –find the conclusion and then answer that whether summary of the statement is Yes or No.
[And if you’re not serious about the test …then read the whole post to know what the stupid author was trying to tell you. 🙂 ]
STATEMENT: If the question you answered before you answered the question you answered after you answered the question you answered before you answered this one, was harder than the question you answered after you answered the question you answered before you answered this one, was the question you answered before you answered this one harder than this one? YES or NO?
 

Answer:

The answer is YES.

In other words, we could restate the statement as:

If the question you answered before this one was harder than THIS ONE, was the question you answered before this one harder than THIS ONE.

That makes the answer obvious.
