Today’s Challenge: How many holes does this t-shirt have?

There are plenty of ways to keep your brain in shape. We all want to feel fresh and sharp.

But to do so, it’s important to give the mind a regular workout. I myself like to sit down at least a couple of times during the week to solve a few puzzles.

Recently, it’s become quite popular to search for new brainteasers online – a positive side to our internet addiction, you could say.

Since most of us hardly take a break from looking at a screen, it is great that you at least have access to all sorts of brain-teasing exercises.

It was different when we went to school. Back then, paper and pencil were our only tools. I remember a certain teacher who liked to hand out riddles and other challenges for us to solve within a certain time.

It wasn’t always easy, but since then, I have always enjoyed solving puzzles. It helps me stay sharp, especially now that I’m older, but it’s probably just as healthy for all ages.

With that said, it’s time to move those brain cells around! I found this puzzle online earlier this week. I think it’s not too hard but not too easy either. The difficulty is just right.

How many holes can you see?

According to several sites, only 1 in 7 adults gets the right answer on their first try.

Therefore, I felt that it would be fair to give you some alternatives to make the challenge a bit easier.

How many holes can you see in this t-shirt? The possible answers are – 2, 4, 6, or 8!

how many holes?

Now take your time and think about it, give it a few seconds.

There are probably more holes than you can see at first glance! Let the brain work for a while before you decide on an answer!

Below, we reveal how many holes the t-shirt has!


The correct answer is 8! That is option D!

Below, we’ll explain how it is possible for there to be eight holes in the t-shirt!

brain teaser solution 1

Let’s start with the two holes in the front of the shirt, that one is simple. Now add the two holes for the arms, one hole for the neck, and the hole at the bottom for the waist.

So far, we have six holes that you can clearly see from the front. But there are actually two more!

solution 2

Of course, you also have to keep in mind that all t-shirts have two sides! As you can see straight through the shirt, there are therefore similar holes on the back of the shirt.

So two more holes – for a total of 8!
