Challenge: How many matches are there in this picture?

I don’t know about you, but something that really wakes me up is facing a challenging test or tasks. Testing yourself is always exciting – it doesn’t matter if you compete against yourself or against others.

Therefore, I usually like to sit down to do some puzzles or quizzes every day. It gets those brain cells moving and your mind sharp. I think it’s not only me who is passionate about this!

Overcoming a challenge, or winning a competition, is always fun!

Visual puzzles and optical illusions can be really tricky. It’s not always easy for the eyes to figure out what is going on in front of them – especially when looking at tricky patterns or illusions.

There are 4 options

Earlier today, I encountered this optical illusion online. I had to sit for a while before picking an answer – and yet I was incorrect. After giving it another try, however, I realized why I got the wrong answer.

It’s quite tricky – and therefore we decided to give you 4 options. But according to the site Mambee, the majority still gets it wrong on the first attempt. Therefore, you should probably have your eyes and brain focused if you are going to pass this test!

You need to figure out how many matches are in this picture! Will you succeed?

Is not that easy, right?

Need an extra look?

The answer is either 9, 10, 11 or 12.

My first thought was 11 matches, but I’ll admit I was wrong.

What can it be then? If you first picked the same answer as me, it’s time to take another look.

Below the next picture, we will show you the right answer!
