## A Picnic For The Family- How Many Were Present?

An elderly couple went on a picnic. Now, they have 5 sons and every single son has 3 children. So, how many people actually went on the picnic?

Remember, you need to take into account every single person who went on this picnic. While the answer seems pretty easy, it might not be THAT easy too! It is quite tricky, we will give you that. But unsolvable- not at all. All you need to do is read the question. The answer, as we say, is often hidden inside it.

So, how many people went on this highly discussed picnic? If your calculations came to 22 people, you are wrong. Read the question properly. The first sentence stated that an elderly couple went on a picnic. The fact that they have children and grandchildren shouldn’t matter any further. After all, we never said that they went on the picnic too!

The answer, my friend, is 2. Only the couple went on the picnic- no one else.
