Riddle Seventeen: Copycats

Question: Ten copycats were sitting in a boat, and one jumped out. How many were left?

Hint: Children often use the word "copycat" to describe another child, usually a younger brother or sister, who does whatever they do. You are not a child, so this should be very easy! After you think about it, look at the bottom of the page for the answer...

Answer: None. They were all copycats.

Explanation: This seems like a simple arithmetic question - 10 minus 1 equals 9 (10 - 1 = 9). But since they were "copycats", they all jumped out of the boat after the first one. Got it?
