It was confusing. I think it was stupid. MN doesn't sound like min. Whatever.

No Kkats....cos it's 'mun' not 'min' the letter are blended together like 'mn' or as i aid 'mun'

But the real question is, how many people screwed up their eyes staring at that license plate trying to figure it out? Nice teaser.

It goes like this:

I X M N IZ
eye ex em en eyes

( I examine eyes)

All the letters are pronounced phonetically except the last 2.

BTW Webster's dictionary defines optometry as the health-care profession concerned especially with examining the eye for defects and faults of refraction, while opthalmology is a branch of medical science dealing with the structure, functions, and diseases of the eye, so optometrist is more accurate than opthalmologist.

honestly how are we supposed to know what his occupation was. The license plate doesn't always, or rarely ever tell somebodies occupation. But still cool... i guess

I love figuring out lisence plates. Took a while to get this one, but fun!!

I thought it was web designer, as that's what I do!

Read the question carefully:

"While riding in the car I saw a license plate that read like this:

IXMNIZ

What occupation did the man in the car have?"

The license plate might have been on the ground or on a motorcycle or anything! The person in the car is ME! (Provided you're a man of course).

So the answer is whatever job you do!

Or at least, I thought it was a trick question.
