So how many people went on a picnic then?

Maybe you came up with the solution of 22 people? Then it’s wrong.

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

It was stated, at the beginning of the riddle, that an older couple went on a picnic. However, it was never said that the sons and their children followed. Since that information was still included, probably some of you counted everyone – which was unnecessary.

The answer was much simpler than it seemed at first.
