Ok, Bear1, My brain was not ready for that either. As you look closer and open your mind to what is being said, the answer is correct. That was a nice Teaser. Intelligent, Mature and incisive.

Keep Um Coming, Luv...

I don't know why but I really liked this one. Took me about 5 minutes. I first realized that the total of the number I wrote in had to be 10. After that, I realized that there's probably only 1 five because 5 is a really big number. Same with 4. Then the rest just fell into place.

djscribbles, the objective is to count how many times each number appears in the sentence and fill in the blanks correctly. BUT, each time you fill in a blank, the number of occurrences changes.
*SPOILER* The complete answer therefore breaks down as:
In this sentence, we see the number "1" occur 3 times,
and we see the number "2" occur 2 times,
and we see the number "3" occur 3 times,
and we see the number "4" occur 1 time,
and we see the number "5" occur 1 time.

Count through and it matches up. The number "1" occurs in the first line (within quotes, as I have written it), in the fourth line (telling how many times we see "4") and in the fifth line (telling how many times we see "5") for a total of 3 occurrences.
