With fun challenges and puzzles on the rise, one tricky riddle has been making rounds on the internet and confusing viewers.
Riddles are a great way to have fun with your family while training your brain and having a good time. Though most riddles come along with tricky answers, the one we have in store for you will definitely require creative thinking for you to solve it.
The riddle goes as follows: There are 30 cows in a field, and 28 chickens. How many didn’t?
As you will quickly see, there’s something off about the question itself. But let’s put grammar on the side and focus on what the riddle wants us to find out instead.
Your job is clearly to find out ‘how many didn’t’ – But before you can do that, you have to find out what the riddle is referring to. To get your answer, focus on the numbers, particularly on the way they sound when you read them out loud!
The solution to this riddle is TEN. Why? If you read twenty-eight slowly, the number sounds the same as TWENTY ATE. Therefore, if 20 cows ate chickens, this means that the rest of them (10) didn’t!
