Joey told Carl that he couldn't answer incorrectly any question that Joey asked him.
Carl then said, "I bet you I can."
"First question, how old are you?"
Carl then said, "50." He was wrong, so they moved to the next question.
"What are you, a male or female?"
He answered, "Female."
Then Joey asked him, "What is your name?"
He answered, "Tim."

Then Joey looked puzzled. It seemed he had forgotten how many questions he asked Carl.
So he asked Carl, "That is three questions I asked you?"
Carl replied, "Yes."
He asked Carl one last question. Carl was wrong, so that means he answered all of the questions wrongly, which he was supposed to do, but Joey won the bet. Why?
