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, Birbal took his 10-year old daughter with him to meet the Emperor Akbar.

Emperor Akbar greeted her cordially and arranged for sweets and toys to be presented to her.

While conversing with her, he asked her whether she knew Persian. She replied, "A little less and a little more, Sire".

Emperor Akbar, puzzled by this reply asked Birbal to explain what his daughter meant.

What did Birbal say?

 fem81uk May 14, 2006 OH dear i dont believe i didnt get it blagh May 14, 2006 Logic? Shouldn't this be situational? Atropus May 15, 2006 If it is a true story (or supposed to be) then it might as well be in Trivia. I wouldn't know either way.. but I'm pretty sure Logic is not what it ought to be. mercenary007 May 15, 2006 I agree with everyone else... how is this logic? Also how is anyone supposed to know the answer unless they are psychic? jazzmusician46 May 15, 2006 I might use that one when people ask me about my Mandarin! didida Jun 02, 2006 Thats logic but it includes guessing.
