Only a few people get it right – but how many circles are there?


How many circles can you see in the picture?

We all love riddles and train our brains, and it’s a good choice. Are you ready to wake up and face this puzzle?

Here comes the challenge. It’s not proper math, but I remember our geometry teacher gave us a similar problem back in school. This may seem easy at first but you will quickly realize it is not as easy as it looks.

Below, there is a picture – and the question is: how many circles are in it?

How many did you find? The answer will be below the next picture.

The answer is revealed below but doesn’t cheat by peeking!

A

B

C

D

E

There are a lot of circles

It is important to think a little outside the box to figure this one out.

The correct answer is 4 circles!

You might think that there are only three when you first see the picture, most people miss the circle under the question mark at the end of the sentence.

The rest of the shapes in the sentence are either square or elliptical, therefore you can’t count them as circles. Clever, huh?

Did you get the correct answer? Congratulations to you if that’s the case, you are really sharp!
