So how many people went on this picnic then?

Maybe the number in your head is 22? Sadly, that’s wrong.

The correct answer is that only 2 people went for a picnic.

At the beginning of the riddle, it says that an elderly couple went on a picnic. However, it was never said that their sons and their children also went with them. Since the information provided had included numbers, it probably made you think it was a math problem – but it wasn’t.

The answer was much simpler than most people tend to think.
