Brain Teaser: ‘90% will pass’ this logical reasoning question. Can you solve it?

Nov 29, 2023 11:43 PM IST

The brain teaser features the sum of a few numbers, and one needs to figure out the pattern used to solve the last equation.

A brain teaser that claims that ‘90% will pass’ it without even attempting it was shared online and has proved to be a head-scratcher. The teaser asks a simple maths question: what is the sum of 10 and 10? Surprisingly, the answer is not 20. To arrive at the correct answer, you need to apply logical reasoning. For instance, the sum of two elevens is four, not twenty-two. Similarly, for two thirteens and seventeens, the answers are eight and sixteen, respectively. Can you solve this mind-bending problem?
