The test that most adults fail: Who’s the mother of this child?

Back when we were kids, puzzles and riddles were quite common at school. Whatever class we had, the teachers gave us different assignments to help us develop our minds.

Thanks to that, our brains developed into our most important tool in life. After overcoming a test, it was much easier to concentrate and to learn new information.

As an adult, you don’t get these things fed with a spoon anymore, which is a shame. At the same time, it’s quite enjoyable not having to go to school anymore.

However, the vital task to exercise your mind falls only on you. There are countless ways to do this, and none is better or worse than the other, as long as your brain does some problem-solving.


Perhaps the most common brainteasers are crosswords or sudoku, which have come in the morning newspaper for many years.

However, if you look online, you’ll quickly find a plethora of fun – and challenging – brainteasers.

For example, the next puzzle, which we are sure can help you exercise your mind and push aside all worries for a few minutes.

The correct answer is the woman on the right.

Why is that? 

  • The lady on the right is sitting so that her legs are directed towards the child. This position shows the instinct of a mother to protect her child.
  • Her posture is protective, slightly bent forward.
  • It’s natural for small kids to face their mother when playing if she is close by.
