If you are last and you overtake the last.. it only means that there is only one person in the race, you :)
because the last person can only overtake the second last person.

SP: How did you get second?

If you overtake the last person, then you weren't officially participating in the race to begin with.

If this is the answer then I would say the question was incorrect.

Q: If you are in a RACE and you are last. Now if you overtake the last person at what position you would be.

You can overtake the last person only if you are the first one and there are laps(rounds) in the race.

But the question says: "...you are last. Now if you overtake the last person..."

So either the question is wrong or the answer is wrong :)

You start out in last position. Then you overtake the other runners one by one. The first one you overtake is in second-to-last place. The last one you overtake is the race leader, and you are then the race leader, i.e. first.
