Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?

Once Emperor Akbar was sitting in his royal garden enjoying the morning breeze and looked up to the sky. On seeing crows flying above, he suddenly posed a question to Birbal, "Birbal, how many crows are there in my kingdom?"

Without missing a heartbeat, Birbal replied "64,532, Sire."

Akbar, surprised at this said, "Are you absolutely sure?"

Birbal said "Of course I am, you could get them counted if you wish!"

How could Birbal be so sure?
