Question: One rabbit saw 6 elephants while going towards river puzzle, Every elephant saw 2 monkeys are going toward river and every monkey holds one parrot in their hands.
Can you tell how many animals are going towards river.
Answer: Case 1 : Best case scenario (minimum animals to make the statement true)
1 rabbit saw 6 elephants while going the river. So, it’s only rabbit going to river and not the elephants.
Every elephant saw 2 monkeys going to river. So, it could be same 2 monkeys seen by all the elephants. So there are 2 monkeys going to river.
Hence total = 1 + 2 = 3
Case 2 : Worst case scenario (treating all as animals. i.e. max number of animals to make the statement true)
6×2 = 12 Monkeys
Each monkey has 1 parrot in hand so 12 parrots.
Total = 1 + 6 + 12 + 12 = 31
