A bit easy, keep working on them. As for you secerlemak, I think you should reread the teaser, I think it did a good job on teasing you.

used very little logic to arrive at correct answer, too easy, i figured i must have overlooked the trick, there was none

That one was kinda confusing. I still don't get it. There isn't any detail in the answer to understand. Oh well. Good job anyway!

Extremely easy. Good job. i like the ones that make sense, and I can answer without looking at the answer. Next time though, a little harder wouldn't hurt!

the answer is 13........right??


Mom #one
~~~~~~~~~~~
Boy has 2 sisters
First girl has 1 sister
Second girl has 1 sister
sub total with mom #one: 5

Mom #two
~~~~~~~~~~~
First boy has 2 sisters
Second boy has 2 sisters
First girl has 1 sister
Second girl has 1 sister
sub total with mom #two: 6

Both moms
~~~~~~~~~~~
Mom #one has 1 sister
Mom #two has 1 sister
sub total with moms: 2


Grand Total: (5+6+2) 13


Please tell me if I am wrong, because I really want to know how I am.

Mom #one
~~~~~~~~~~~
Boy has 2 sisters
First girl has 1 sister
Second girl has 1 sister
sub total with mom #one: 4 (not 5)

Grand Total: (4+6+2) 12

I calculated 12 as well - this is how many sister relationships there are.
The given answer, 6, is how many people are sisters.

Yeah I agree with Tintin and Marc, the question is poorly phrased. I would have said 12 as well.
