Four Empty Boxes?
Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
I have 5 apples in a box and 4 other empty boxes. How many items do I have?
HintIt is best if you count everything.
I have 10 items. 5 apples + 5 boxes = 10 items. I said count EVERYTHING.

|Er, no... "5 apples in A box" = 5 apples + 1 box. Your logic and your math is faulty, LogicMath!|

| LogicalMath123 and spikethru4 - I undertsand both your points, it mainly depends on the wording of the question to determine the correct answer, if you have "5 apples in a box" that would mean you have 6items altogether so the answer would be correct that with the 4 empty boxes added on, you have 10 items however if you have 5 "apples in a box" then that would mean each apple is in a box of it's own which means you have 10 items, plus the other 4 empty boxes making 14 items in total. The question is written correctly for the answer it gives however for this category being trick, a little play on words would have been better for the answer to result in 14 items |

|This isn't a trick. This should be in the math section.|

|I think items are 2 only: apple and box.|
Each item's 5 units are there.
