# This “simple” riddle is too tricky for most people – but do you know how many people there are in this family?

Another day of lockdown, another day of being stuck at home. Thankfully the worst part seems to be over, but it’s still too early to be sure, stay inside just a bit longer my fellow Americans.

We all know that training the body and keeping it in shape is important to live a long and happy life, especially when you get a little older.

But what we usually forget is that the brain also needs regular exercise to stay sharp.

Certainly, you use it when you work, whether you are a student or an engineer. But devoting half an hour to solve some brainteasers allows your mind to work in a slightly different way.

Besides, you’ll feel much sharper and fresher afterward, since your mind had at least a few minutes to relax and let the stress and worries go. Besides, it’s quite a fun way to pass the time – and who wouldn’t like to do something healthy and fun?

Today, thanks to technology, you can find an incredible amount of puzzles, riddles, and similar challenges online.

In the past, they may have been mostly puzzles like crosswords or sudoku, but today there is so much to choose from that there’s no need to stick to only one type of challenge.

How many people are in the family?

Which option is the correct one?

Think about it carefully. Don’t worry, if you can’t find the correct answer we will show it to you after the picture below.

The correct answer is A) 9

Why only 9?

Because: six sons + two parents = eight family members.

Then every son has one sister, but that sister is the same sister for all brothers, which means that there is only one sister.
