"Are you smarter than a 1st grader? Can you solve this puzzle? "


          

It's from an admissions test for 1st grade in Hong Kong. They say kids can solve it easily, but adults struggle with it.

What number belongs under the parked car?

we think things are more complicated than they really are...which sucks because I literally wrote down the numbers and walked out of the room to do something, and when I came back I saw the sheet and was like "my dumb ass"

He said his physics class debated for three whole hours on if the glass was half empty or half full. The braniacs used all type formulas n shit to prove their point.

He got to his grandma's house later, and told him they had the most intense debate on the half full vs half empty thing...and he explained her what some folks said on both sides. He asked her what the thought, and she said "well....depends on if you're drinking or pouring!"

That's why kids pick up on this stuff, older people are more static thinkers so things like this and riddles don't come to them as easily.
