The birthday child was distributing sweets among the class when the school principal stopped by.
After wishing the child a happy birthday and getting to know his age, the principal asked the following puzzle:
From a certain distance, a hunter spots 3 green parrots and 3 black crows sitting on a tree branch. Then, the hunter aims for a bird using his weapon and and shoots one green parrot. How many birds are left behind?
The smart child answers the puzzle covering all possible scenarios and impresses the principal.
Are you smarter than the fifth grader? Can you impress the principal?
Please read carefully and cover all cases and assumptions. Think like a fifth grader.
This is another puzzle my classmate was asked in fifth grade and many of us in the class got it wrong. Apologies if it is a duplicate.
