Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
How many stars are there above?
* * * * * * * * * *
HintThis is a trick question.
3. Above the question is the title.

|I said four because there's four stars in the fun section|

|Could be 3 or 4 or 7 or none depending on where we are supposed to look - Title, Box, Box plus Title, or Inside the Question Area where there aren't any.|
If you're going for cute, at least fix it so it has ONE right answer not four semi-possibles. Cute is okay. Sloppy is - not so fun.

|I said 7... 3 above in the title and 4 in the evaluation box. You should count them all.|

|So very easy but fun! |

|Technically, the answer is infinite. If you look up at the night sky there are too many stars to count. The universe is infinite; so are the amount of stars! |

|Yeah, well, I got 3 and then realizeed in the box there were 4 more, and... I don't relly like puzzles where you could get multiple answers. Especially not trick puzzles.|

|I got it, but i also see how it could be 7 or 4. I see the stars above in the fun section. Not to mention if Braingle were to ever change their layout, like YouTube is so infamous for doing, they could put the title below it or off to the side, or neglect to show it in general.|

|I thought you were referring to the stars up above |

|This just takes common sense people! You just have to read carefully!|

|I thought it would be zero because I didn't get that it was the title. |

|There are technically eight stars. The gray stars count.|

|Jokes on you, cuz the answer is 7 due to the 4 in the popularity box.|
