**Can you solve this riddle?**

Today, I found this riddle online, and it took me a while to figure it out.

Now the question is: Can you solve it?

Look at the picture below and think carefully.

**An elderly couple went on a picnic. They have 5 sons, and each son has 3 children. In total, how many people went for a picnic?**

Yes, time to get thinking. Don’t hurry and carefully count everyone, alright?

We will report the correct solution after the next image.

Which of the options do you think is the correct one?

The answer comes below the next picture.

A

B

C

**Time for the answer**

Maybe the number in your head is 22? Sadly, that’s wrong.

The right answer is A) 2

Why are there only 2 people went for a picnic?

At the beginning of the riddle, it says that an elderly couple went on a picnic. However, it was never said that their sons and their children also went with them. Since the information provided had included numbers, it probably made you think it was a math problem – but it wasn’t.

The answer was much simpler than most people tend to think.
