Riddle Five: A Big Family

Question: Mom and Dad have four daughters, and each daughter has one brother. How many people are in the family?

Hint: This riddle is easy but it can be a little bit tricky if you're not careful! After you think about it, look at the bottom of the page for the answer...













Answer: Seven. The four daughters have only one brother, making five children, plus mom and dad.

Explanation: Did you get tricked by the word "each"? Even though "each daughter" has one brother, they are not different brothers, are they? Do you get it now?
