You might be surprised to learn that there are many benefits to doing puzzles, not the least of which is keeping ourselves mentally sharp. Rather than sitting back and binge-watching a show on Netflix or jumping mindlessly from one website to another, you can do a puzzle and be happy with the fact that you are doing your brain some good. You should also consider that it is good to challenge yourself every once in a while, because it keeps you sharp and keeps you from losing some of the brainpower that you have spent years building up.
One other thing that you should keep in mind is that puzzles are not always as they seem. You might see one and the answer seem so simple to you but when you find out what the answer actually is, you wonder how you could have fallen so far from the mark. That is the case with this puzzle, and it is stumping people with it’s simplicity.
So, how many people were on the picnic?
I’m going to tell you in a moment but I want you to be absolutely sure before I do.
The answer is below, just remember you can’t unsee it!
Last warning, you are about to see the answer.
The answer is 2!
You see, the first sentence tells you that a couple (2 people) went on a picnic. It really doesn’t matter how many kids or grandkids they have, there were only 2 that went on the picnic.
So, how did you do?
