# A teensy bit of easy fun!

What is wrong with this statement?

Clarification: "What is wrong with this statement?" is the statement.

The reason I didn't make this a problem, is I couldn't find a way to put the answer, that wouldn't give it away! This is a very easy problem, but I'm hoping it stumps 1 or 2 of you.

Note: This question is part of the book "The Mysterious Benedict Society" which is a good read.

As Geoff, I will delete my answer. Please post it as a problem, is great. · 4 months, 1 week ago

The thing is if I made it multi-choice, when they looked at the choices the answer would be obvious... any ideas? · 4 months, 1 week ago

Nah... Just put 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 .... And put like 3 obvious ones... :) · 4 months, 1 week ago

Well, Geoff's idea is great. I'm waiting for your problem! · 4 months, 1 week ago

@Finn C And make sure to make it a multiple choice (so they don't get 3 chances! :) ) · 4 months, 1 week ago

And put one obvious one, like a spelling mistake. · 4 months, 1 week ago

A repeated word haha · 4 months, 1 week ago

Yeah, you can't do that! How about saying "How many mistakes are in this statement?" · 4 months, 1 week ago

Thats a great idea! · 4 months, 1 week ago

At least two people will get it! :) · 4 months, 1 week ago

Haha! · 4 months, 1 week ago

Wow! Hahaha nice problem, tricky. · 4 months, 1 week ago

I got it isn't even a statement it is a question! · 1 month, 1 week ago

I think I got it! I won't post the solution though... hehe :D · 3 months, 2 weeks ago

I've wrote it... :) · 4 months, 1 week ago

Follow Geoff suggestions, a repeated word would be better than an spelling mistake · 4 months, 1 week ago

OK... going to delete it and make a couple of obvious mistakes · 4 months, 1 week ago
