Riddles have always amazed me; it lets wake up the Sherlock in me.
But riddles are not always fun but frustrating because not knowing the answer is not part of the fun, at least for me.
How you solve a riddle depends mostly on your lateral thinking. So how creatively can you think? Well, this riddle might help you find out!
The riddle looks easy and kind of silly, but it had the internet puzzled because the answer you can generate in seconds is sadly not the correct answer. Go, ahead, give it a try!
The puzzle looks simple but what has made it difficult is that it has omitted the obvious answer “6.” Now, what’s your answer? Think before you scroll down else the fun will be lost.
Seeing the pattern and based on our elementary school knowledge, we know that the obvious answer is six because it is the only logical answer.
But the puzzle already mentioned that the answer is not six. This is where your creative thinking comes into the play. You have to perceive this problem in a different light.
I will give you one clue – you see this pattern almost every day. Want another? How’s your driving?
If you did crack the puzzle, pat yourself on your back and if you didn’t, don’t worry, most of us haven’t either!
