Well, what answer did you come up with? If you guessed 11, sorry, but that is incorrect. There are less than 11 people in the image. Paintings or portraits are not living people, so, they don’t count.

Did you guess 5 people? Well, that is also incorrect. There are more than 5 people in this image. Somewhere, there is a person hiding in a painting.

So, this makes the correct answer 6. There are 6 people in this image. Here is the solution if you need a visual aid to assist:
