Question :

digital-art-420801_1280

 

One rabbit saw 6 elephants while going towards River.
Every elephant saw 2 monkeys are going toward river.
And Every monkey holds one parrot in their hands.

Now tell us how many animals are going towards river.

Hint : Use Maths Logic

 

Answer : scroll down..

Updated 21/04( Many Thanks for comments):

Case 1: Best Case Scenario ( minimum animals to make the statement true)

1 rabbit saw 6 elephants while going to river. So, its 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)

1 Rabbit

6 Elephants

6*2=12 Monkeys

Each monkey has 1 parrot in hand so 12 parrots.

Total = 1 + 6 + 12 + 12 = 31

Case 3: Treating Birds as Animals.

1 Rabbit, 2 Monkeys, 2 Birds

So total of 5.

Thanks all for your valuable comments.

    1. Updated ( Corrected the comment):
      Thanks Guna for your reply. 2 possible answers above !

      Updated (21/04): Added 3rd Case – Birds as animals. Thanks all for your comments.

          1. What is it then you idiot unless its vegetable or mineral it lives and breathes its a bird still an animal !

          2. Fucking dopes! Animals aren’t just organisms that walk on four legs. Bugs, jellyfish, and even sea sponges are all animals. In kingdom Animalia, there are nine phyla, or subdivisions, of animals. Phyla are organized from the least evolved, porifera, to the most evolved, chordata.

          3. A bird is an animal. LOL. They still belong to Kingdom Animalia.. Known to be aerial.. Please study taxonomy.. Or even just simple biology

          4. Any living thing is an animal. Animal definition; a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.

          5. A parrot is a bird, but it’s still an animal. Just the same as an elephant is a mammal but still an animal!

          6. All birds r animals wtf u on about take the time to google all living life its broken into 5 groups plants animal blah blah blah birds r in the animal kingdom

          1. they belong to the kingdom animalia…so they are still classified as an animal… please study taxonomy…that will help you a lot… 🙂

          2. There are 6 basic ANIMAL groups. Those 6 being amphibians, reptiles,fish,invertebrates mamals, and BIRDS! Omg I can’t believe there’s people who think birds aren’t animals.

        1. 1 rabbit 2 monkeys and the monkey hole a porrot in there had which they have 2 hands so it would be 5 but it did said the monkey were seen heading 2 the river it didn’t say they were going so the answer is 1

          1. If you read the puzzle line by line you will notice that its the rabbit going towards river
            (One rabbit saw 6 elephants while going towards River).
            Now there are two monkeys also going towards river
            (Every elephant saw 2 monkeys are going towards river, its the same two monkeys seen by every elephant)
            Now puzzle also says that every monkey holds one parrot
            (Every monkey holds one parrot in their hands)
            that means parrots are also, obviously, going towards river. So we need to count two parrots as well.
            So in total we have 5 animals going towards river : 1 Rabbit, 2 Monkeys and 2 Parrots.

          2. Why one?rabbit only saw not going.the question is how many animals are going towards to the river.

        2. I get 25 – 6 elephants (didn’t say elephants were going to the river) saw 2 monkeys going to the river = 12 monkeys / each monkey had a parrot = 12 parrots / plus the rabbit = 25 animals going to the river / parrots ARE TOO animals.

          1. That’s how I read it. As the rabbit was GOING TO THE RIVER saw 6 elegants who REACH saw 2 monkey’s going TOWARDS Zthe river with a parrot in there hands. THE QUESTION IS HOW MANY ANIMALS ARE GOING TOWARDS THE RIVER. 24.

      1. I agree with the second statement but the Elephants should not be added in as it doesn’t say they are going to the river. Also, birds are an animal just a specific classification of the animal Kingdom therefor 25 animals

      2. But the question did it say the elephants were going to the river just that the rabbit saw them! So take away six.

        1. I agree it’s 5..no one said the Elephants were going to the river. They were just saw by the rabbit as he went toward the river.

      3. A bird is most certainly an animal! There are 6 groups (in the US, 5 elsewhere) of living things called Kingdoms then Class and further from there. The 6 groups are: Archaea and Bacteria (Monerans in other countries) Protists, Fungi, Plants, and Animals. Birds fall under the kingdom of animals and class called Aves. You are probably thinking of mammals which is in the class Mammalia which are warm blooded, have hair and milk producing mothers.

      4. So, at first I got 5 but then when I read it again it said that they “saw” them going but the question is how many “are going” so I got 0 ARE going.

      5. A parrot is in the bird category of animals. “a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.”

      6. Four is also a possible answer…. because if you focus on the question ‘how many are going TOWARDS the river’ it would just be the two monkeys and the two parrots. Because the word towards, if u think of it, is a clearer path or direction from the river and u often use the word towards when they are close together…. for all we know, the rabbit was going to the river but was still somewhere far and just saw the elephants through binoculars. So if u focus on the question, just the two monkeys and their parrots.

    2. birds belong to kingdom animalia… birds are animals. even humans are. i hope u pay more attention in the biology class… 🙂

      1. Lol, yes you are right indeed. Depending on belief you can choose either of the 2 answers we posted. Please like us !!

        1. Your question and your answer makes no sense to and towards have two different meanings you asked how many are going towards(which is direction of) not to towards is 4 going to is one.

    3. Every means each rite, then how can you say) same 2 monkeys seen by all the elephants.. There is little difference between all and every

    4. Absolute answer is 3, and parrots are also animals. But parrots are taken by monkeys..so parrots are not going by itself.

      1. If you are being carried by somebody or being driven you would still say you are going somewhere. You dont have to be physically moving on your own.

    5. Sorry wrong. All living things are classified into 2 major groups ie, plants and animals. So long as parrot does not belong to plants, it can be animal only.

    6. All organisms except plants and micro-organisms are animals. Birds, reptiles, insects, amphibians, fishes, molluscans, annelida , etc are included in kingdom ANIMALIA. Fastest animal on this planet is peregrine falcon (a raptor bird).

    7. …and a bird IS an animal. Are you really that stupid? Must be if you honestly think a parrot is NOT an animal. How many times did you fail kindergarten? 7? You, OP, have gone full retard. Never go full retard.

    8. The five most well known classes of vertebrates (animals with backbones) are mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians. They are all part of the phylum chordata — I remember “chordata” by thinking of spinal chord. There are also a lot of animals without backbones.
      Yes a bird IS an animal.

    9. Parrots are not mammals. Parrots are however animals.
      an·i·mal (anəməl)
      noun
      1.
      a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.

    10. Actually, the highest order of zoological classification is animalia. The “kingdom” includes all living organisms: animal, plant, fungi, bacteria (single-celled organisms without a nucleus) and protists (single-celled organisms with a nucleus).
      PHYLUM – “Chordata“. Phylum furthers categorizes the ranking of those in the animal kingdom. The group “chordata” includes all vertabrate animals (those with spinal chords, including humans). In the animal kingdom there are 36 animal phyla.
      CLASS – “Aves“. The aves group includes only birds and indicates that its members have feathers.
      ORDER – “Psittaciformes“. Refers specifically to parrots.
      FAMILY – “Cacatuidae“. This group includes ALL cockatoos – including the cockatiel.
      SUB FAMILY – “Cacatuinae”. This category refers specifically to the white cockatoos.
      GENUS – “Cacatua“. The genus refers to a group of birds that have certain defining characteristics in common.
      SPECIES – “goffini“. Finally we arrive at the one and only goffins cockatoo – totally unique unto itself. In order to point to the exact classification of this species, you need only two words: cacatua goffini – its “scientific name”.
      SUBSPECIES – none.

    11. You might be thinking of mammal. An animal is usually defined something like …
      “a living organism which feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli”.

    12. Birds are one of the major groups of animals… The bird group is one of six basic animal groupsanimal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates, mammals and reptiles.

    13. a bird, by definition, IS an animal.
      an·i·mal
      ˈanəməl/Submit
      noun
      1.
      a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.
      “animals such as spiders”

    14. Where did u go to school… the animal kingdom is broken down into 6 types… birds,mammals,amphibians,fish,reptiles and invertibrates…. suggest some touching up

    15. 1 rabbit going to the river. The six elephants presumably are not in a group or had it been then the quis would state it. Hence, all 6 elephants not altogether saw 2 monkeys each, going towards the river. So, 12 monkeys are also going towards the river. Same 12 monkeys are holding 1 parrot and by “holding” would mean 12 parrots are also going to that rivers. The rabbit plus 12 monkeys and 12 parrots equal 25 animals are going to the river

    16. All organisms except plants and micro-organisms are animals. Birds, reptiles, insects, amphibians, fishes, molluscans, annelida , etc are included in kingdom ANIMALIA.

      So parrot is an animal.

      Fastest animal on this planet is peregrine falcon (a raptor bird).

    17. its still an animal,its a bird part of the anima kingdom as an elephant is a mammal also part of the animal kingdom hence if you mistreat a parrot the R.S.P.C.A. will get involved.

      1. I would have said 4 as the monkeys are the only ones going towards the river with a parrot in their hands rest are on way to river

        1. Exactly…. going to and going Towards are different…..you can being anywhere/somewhere….. but going Towards something is in a specific direction

    1. I will agree with you on that but, you are wrong I think your answer would be 5 because each monkey holds 1 parrots so 2 +2+1=5

  1. One rabbit saw 6 elephants while going to river has no special characters
    one rabbit saw “6 elephants while going to river”
    or “one rabbit” saw 6 elephants while going to river.
    Who is going to river in the above sentence the rabbit or the elephants?

    1. Its not 6 elephants going to river….
      Its 6 elephants while going to river… So its very clear that only rabit is going to river..

    2. Sentence structure tells us the subject of this sentences is the rabbit. WHILE is kinda our linchpin here if it was missing I could get on board with the elephants going toward but since in this sentence we have
      Subject: Rabbit.
      What subject is experiencing: Saw (X) While (Doing Y)

      I can’t get on board with the Elephants in motion based on this.

  2. I guess its 3 . Parrot is bird so they are out of the race. Rabbit while going to the river saw 6 elephants. And all the 6 elephants saw same 2 monkeys going to the river. So onluy 2 monkeys and a rabbit are going to the river….

    1. Absolute answer is 3,and parrots are also animals..why because human beings and animals are there in our nature,then birds are also animals(some times humans are also animals).. but answer is 3,why because there parrots are taken by monkeys towards the river.. so finally answer is one rabbit and two monkeys going towards the river..

      1. The correct answer is the two monkeys – they are the only ones described as going towards the river . The rabbits destination may be the river by he is no described as going towards it.

  3. Nowhere it is clear Rabbit is going towards river, and it says “saw”. That means to me, zero animals going towards river

  4. Wow… you guys are fucking stupid as shit! Are you seriously fucking debating whether a bird is an animal!?!? Really? If it isn’t an animal, what the fuck is it? Please explain this…Wow.

  5. What If the 6 elephants saw the same 2monkeys ( not each 2 monkeys ) Isn’t this question raise!!
    Then it will be 1rabbit+ 2 monkeys

  6. Only eight animal (6 elephants+ 2 monkeys) were going towards river.
    – the rabbit only saw not went to river.
    – the two monkeys holds one parrot each which are birds not animals.

  7. Let’s use English here and not math. A rabbit along with a parade of elephants a troop of monkeys and pandemonium of parrots went to the river….
    Simple as it is😃😃😃

  8. all wrong, correct answer:

    Only 5 elephants, because the rest all scared and go back home to watch POGO channel,, ha ha

    1. It didnt say elephants are not going to river. Rabit saw elephants while going. It could be possible elephants are also going to river and rabit saw on the way

  9. Ans. Is 25
    The is 1 Rabbit who is going towards river and saw elephants..
    So (consider 1 Rabbit) and

    1 elephant saw 2 Monkeys are going towards River
    So dere r 6 elephants so (consider 12 Monkeys..)

    And every Monkey holds 1 Parrot in hand.. so (consider 12 Parrots)

    1 Rabbit + 12 Monkeys + 12 Parrots = 25 Animals

  10. Bloody hell there are 2 monkeys only so each can see 2 monkeys so there must be 2 monkeys when an elephant can see only 2 monkeys are the remaining monkeys invisible?for other elephants there are only TWO Monkeys so each can see only two so 1 rabbit+ 6 elephants+2MONKEYS+ 2 Parrots =11(ELEVEN) Onlyyyyyy 😤😡😡😡😡

  11. Brain teasers require u think out of the box, u need to read every line with understanding. 5 animals were going towards the river. ATU CHIDERA said so. Remember, 1 rabbit saw 6 elephants, the elephants wia not going towards the river, each element saw 2 monkeys, that means there were only 2 monkeys, since each held a parrot, we have 2 parrots, (1+6+2+2=11 animals seen). 11-6elephants since they were not said to be going to the river=5 animals doing road work towards the river. QED!!!

  12. The elephants just saw 2 monkeys & not parrots,so there is no witness to prove about parrots,is just the writer saying that.(seeing & hearing aren’t the same).I will go to 1 rabbit & 2 monkeys are going forwards to the river.

  13. correct answer is 3 as rabbit and 2 monkeys which come under animal category are going towards river, and most of them will consider parrot but they are birds not animal

  14. Well according to me it should be one i.e. only a rabbit is going. As regards monkeys, they cannot walk like humans or apes on two legs holding the parrots. The monkeys are just put in for the sake of confusion.

  15. I do have an issue with the statement “And every monkey holds one parrot in their hand”. It does not categorically tell us whether or not they had parrots in their hands..the first two sentences and present continuous but the last one looks like a general statement: this measuring cup holds two cups of flour. It does not mean there is flower in the measuring cup at the time of the observation. So my answer is three; a rabbit and two monkeys; worst case scenario, 5 if we assume the money’s had parrots in their hands at the time.

  16. Just a wild thought..why are we ignoring Elephants? Possibility could be that Elephants are also going towards river & since Rabbit is fast so he could hv seen them while going towards river.

  17. Birds ARE animals.
    The answer is 1 rabbit, 2 monkeys, and 2 parrots. Total of 5 animals going towards river.
    The other answer of 31 doesn’t make sense, since every elephant essentially saw the same 2 monkeys.
    The only correct answer would be 5. Not 31, not 3, it’s 5 animals going towards river.

  18. The real answer is 3 reason because – in every puzzle, just like magic; there is always the ‘FOCAL’ and the ‘BAIT’. The FOCAL is where the answer lies buy the BAIT is a distraction.
    Usually the trick is that, the BAIT is often more frequent than the FOCAL. Here the FOCAL is “animals” and the BAIT is “numbers”. So in all there are 3 animals going to the river aside the Elephant listed above.

    So therefore Ans: 3.
    *Note the numbers are the BAIT.

  19. Rabbit is not going in river as a question is towards going inriver …and parrot is an bird not animal so not count … Next elephant saw 2 monkeys 6 or more elephants can see only 2 monkeys because there 2 monkeys .. Finally answer is 6 elephants and 2 monkeys

  20. As per the kingdom animalia, animals are classified into two types. Vertebrates and invertebrates.parrot will come under first category.so you have to include parrot also. My frnd

  21. One Rabbit saw 6 Elephant going towards river = 1 Rabit = 6 Elephant = 7
    Six Elephant saw two monkeys + 2 Monkeys = 2
    ( Parrots are Birds and not animals)

    Answer is 9

  22. 1 Rabit + 2 Monkeys + 2 parrots = 5 animals going towards the river as 6 elephants are not going towards the river, so shouldn’t be counted. Parrots are also going towards the river as they are in motion with respect to surroundings according to Physics.

  23. an·i·mal
    ˈanəməl/
    noun
    1.
    a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.
    “animals such as spiders”

  24. Completely agree. The rabbit and two monkeys are physically moving themselves closer to the river, while the parrots are stationary and being carried towards the river. I say 3.

  25. Note: parrot is not an animal.
    There is 2 answers
    3, if the elephant saw the same monkeys
    13, if the elephant saw different monkeys.

  26. Rabbit going towards River.
    River is a park Ranger.
    Rabbit was not going towards the same river as the two monkeys and one parrot.

    Animals going towards river total 3
    2 monkeys
    1 parrot.

  27. I think it’s only two monkeys with four parrots on each monkeys’ hands which make it 6. And the questions says how many animals are going towards ‘river’ not River.

  28. What is all 6 elephants saw 2 different monkeys?
    So 12 monkeys are going towards river 1 Rabbit is going
    So answer is 13
    OR to consider Parrots within the answer, though they are birds
    12 monkeys will have 12 parrots and 1 Rabbit so 25 can be another answer.

  29. The answer is 4…..please note that the riddle is a question involving ENGLISH and MATHS the question asked how many animals are going TOWARDS the river….only the monkeys and parrots are going TOWARDS the river the rabbit saw the elephants WHILE going to the river. Everyone is only looking at this riddle mathematically.

  30. This is correct. I don’t know why the heck they count the elephants since we don’t know where the elephants are going.

  31. Please tell me you are joking bird is the specie and yes is an animal just like reptiles mammals fish holy Yisus where is the asteroid?

  32. 4 the rabbit saw while headed to…
    two monkeys carried two parrots
    TOWARDS THE RIVER…. not headed to…. how many were headed to

  33. Holy crap there are a lot of dumb people in this thread. Repeat after me “a bird is an animal” “a bird is an animal” “a bird is a fecking animal”…. Go back to bloody school!

  34. Each monkey holds 1 parrot in their
    hands so 1 monkey holds 1 parrot..monkeys are going towards the river holding 1 parrot in their hands.so altogether 4 animal ..2 monkeys n 2 parrots i thik…answer is 4

  35. A BIRD IS AN ANIMAL!!! The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles. so my answer is 1 Rabbit + 2 monkeys + 2 parrots = 5 animals going torward the river.

  36. You could also say 25 12 monkeys 12 parrots and 1 rabbit for it said thhe elephants say 2 monkeys each heading toward the river.it didnt say the elephants were heading anywhere

    1. you assume Every Elephant saw a different set of monkeys it the word problem never said that. I read it four times nowhere did it say more than 2 monkeys only that each elephant saw 2 monkeys headed to the river. assuming the elephants stayed in one spot based on sentence 1 I’m betting they never saw the rabbit but they all saw the 2 monkeys walk by. IMO answer is 5. 1 rabbit + 2 monkeys + 2 kidnapped but traveling parrots.

  37. so wait if you are kidnapped and thrown on a plane to australia you not actually going anywhere????? oh i assure you the birds ARE going to the rivver just not willingly. it’s 5 in that cases

  38. Every = a collective
    Each = individually

    1 rabbit saw 6 elephants = 1rabbit
    Every elephant saw 2 monkeys = 2 monkeys
    Every monkey held 1 parrot = 1 parrot

    Answer = 4 animals

  39. It says ‘going towards the river’ which would be 4… 2 monkeys and 2 parrots. Or just two monkeys if parrots aren’t classed as animals. It’s in the wording!

  40. One rabbit saw 6 elephants while going towards River. 1 rabbit
    Every elephant saw 2 monkeys are going toward river. 12 monkeys
    And Every monkey holds one parrot in their hands. 12 parrots
    Every elephant saw 2 monkeys
    The answer is simple 25 animal
    The question was Now tell us how many animals are going towards river
    25 this should not be a debate people come on

  41. The five most well known classes of vertebrates (animals with backbones) are mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians. They are all part of the phylum chordata — I remember “chordata” by thinking of spinal chord. There are also a lot of animals without backbones.
    So yes morons…animals ARE birds.

  42. If you are including Parrots as Animals then the Answer is 4. As the two Monkeys are holding the same Parrot. so only one Parrot.

    1. I was so confident in my answer of ‘5’ and then this blew my mind! I believe you are correct. (and yes of course parrots are animals. I come from a family of scientists and they laughed so hard at some of the comments)

  43. Parrots (BIRDS) are animals. They are not mammals!!! Where the hell do you people get this information. Never-mind, The first sentence gives you the answer. ONE. The Rabbit. It reads he “SAW” these animals “WHILE GOING to the river, it does not say they were going to the river. Since we can infer that the rabbit is the one going to the river, as the sentence doesn’t say, a rabbit saw other animals as “they were all” going to the river. It is a trick question.

    1. Sorry was distracted by animal v. mammal caveat. Didn’t remember seeing the 2nd sentence saying the monkey’s were headed to the river, after going on that parrot tangent haha.

      1 Rabbit
      0 Elephants
      2 Monkeys we cannot conclude every/each [synonymous] without implying that all individually encountered their own unique set of monkeys.

      Every (collectively) saw two
      Each (individually) saw two (still doesn’t imply whether it was the same two or a unique pair)

      As to correctly imply that would be to say. Each/Every elephant saw a unique pair of monkey.

      and finally 2 parrots.

      5 animals is the correct answer.

  44. Base answer…5. 1 rabbit, 2 monkeys, 2 parrots (answer asks for ANIMALS…not mammals. google “Are birds animals” if you aren’t sure if they’re animals. birds are one of the six basic ANIMAL groups). But w/ what English words mean, the max answer could also be 19. 1 rabbit, 12 monkeys, 6 parrots. Its uses the words “Every elephant” which implies individually, and as it doesn’t say the 6 elephants are in a herd, then each elephant could be alone and could have seen 2 monkeys each. After all, it says “Every monkey has a parrot”, not meaning all the monkeys are holding the same parrot. But that’s kinda overthought and jacked up on logic, so my easy base answer will stay w/ 5.

  45. Ahh but it doesnt say that the monkeys are holding a different parrot just that each hold a parrot in their hand. They could be holding one parrot between the two monkeys. So then the answer is 4

  46. Your an animal. Look it up. So is the parrot. All living things are classified into 5 kingdoms – animalia, plantae, fungi, protista, and monera. If you don’t think that you are an animal then you must be a plant, a fungus, eukaryotic organisms, or bacteria.

  47. A parrot is an animal actually…..is a snake an animal or is it a reptile…is a lion an animal or is it a mammal, etc
    Birds are not mammals (they don’t have mammary glands) nor reptiles (they are not cold blooded), but instead belong in a grouping all their own. The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles

  48. The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles.

  49. It says how many are going “towards” the river, not “to” so it would be 4!… 2 monkeys + 2 parrots are going “towards” the river! The rabbit is going “to” the river

  50. I don’t think I can handle one more moron saying a bird isn’t an animal! How thick are some people!!! Answer is 5.
    READ IT there isn’t a bird in each hand!!! Monkeys are holding with hands! Elephants are not going anywhere!!! Gggrrr

  51. It doesn’t matter whether a parrot is classed as an animal are not! The parrots are not going towards the river anyway, they are being carried towards the river!
    Hence the answer is 3 (1 rabbit, 2 monkeys)

  52. “Animalia” is a kingdom. Under that fall birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and even invertebrates.

  53. A bird is an animal. As are fish, reptiles, mammals etc.
    They belong to the vertebrates class of animals (animals with backbones)

  54. Sasha carried or not they are still going towards the river!!! So when your traveling in a car do you not consider yourself to be going towards anything coz your being taken? Omg what has happened to some people’s education

  55. 1 Rabbit 2 Monkeys. Monkey has 2 hands, so parrot in each hand. 4 parrots. Therefore 1 rabbit 2 monkeys and 4 parrots = 7 animals.

  56. Birds are indeed animals. They are not mammals, but they ARE animals. Even worms are animals, invertebrate animals.

  57. First things first.. there is no such sentence using “every elephants saw” or “every monkey holds” it should be “each”.. birds is an animal.. so to conclude the animals that is going to or towards the river is the 1 rabbit, 2 monkeys and since each of the monkeys is holding 1 parrot so its 2 parrot.. 1+2+2 = 5

  58. 1 rabbit go to the river saw 6 elephants = 1
    Every Elephant means every elephant saw 2 monkeys going towards river = 6 x 2 = 12
    Every monkey holds 1 parrot = 12 x 1 = 12
    Hence, 1 + 12 + 12 = 25 ?

  59. How do we know the 2 monkeys weren’t holding the same parrot each with both hands? If so the answer could be minus all parrots but 1.

  60. Looks to me like the monkeys are holding the same parrot in ‘their hands’
    Do for me its 4
    Rabbit, 2 monkeys and a parrot (5 extra parrot at best)

  61. My answer is either 2 or 13 .. 2 – rabbit and monkey .. 13 – 1 rabbit and 12 monkey ..

    1 rabbit saw 6 elephants while going to the river .. so only rabbit is going to the river

    every elephants saw 2 monkey then 6×2 = 12 monkey

    every monkey holds 1 parrot in their hands .. so parrot is not going towards the river..

    1. your 3 statement is wrong. that’s like me saying the sisters each have 1 brother. how many brothers are there?
      ask each elephants how many monkeys they saw and they’ll say because they all saw the same two monkeys

  62. Unfortunately, despite being it’s own group (birds), the group is considered 1 of 6 “animal” groups

  63. The answer is 25 or 5 depending on if the elephants saw the same 2 monkeys or different ones each. Birds are animals for anyone who actually needs to ask that question birds are one of 6 different types of animals birds amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles. This is basic stuff guys

  64. The question asked how many animal are going “Towards” the river. Only means that due to the way the question was worded there could only be 2 animals going towards the river and that would be the monkeys. Not the 1 rabbits that was going “To” the river or the Parrots that were “in the monkeys hands” if you pay attention to details.

  65. The question asked how many animal are going “Towards” the river.

  66. The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles.
    So yes, the bird is an animal.

  67. Ummm…Yes they are.Birds are neither mammals (they don’t have mammary glands) nor reptiles (they are not cold blooded), but instead belong in a grouping all their own. The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles.

  68. So at first I got 5 but then when I read it again it said that they “saw” them going and the question asked how many “are going” so I got that 0 ARE going.

  69. Everyone. Please read it does not say the rabbit went towards the river it says went to the river. The only animals described as going towards the river is the monkeys. The birds, it doesn’t matter if they are animals or not because it never described them as going towards the river it speaks of them being in the monkeys hand. The focus is “Towards” not “To”, not “With”, not ” Seeing, Looking, or Watching” the focus is ” Going Towards” the river therefore​the monkeys were the only ones detailed as doing such. Therefore you have the battle or English V/S Mathematics.

  70. People that think parrots are not animals are morons,ever heard of a game called animal,vegetable or mineral.Maybe you people are thinking of a carrot instead of parrot.

  71. You guys are a cluster fuck of idiots, morons, and retards. 1 rabbit saw 6 elephants while it was going towards the river (1 rabbit going towards the river). Every elephant saw 2 monkeys going to the river. Be aware that you can’t go to the river if your not moving towards it. Towards- in the direction of… (the 6 elephants aren’t going anywhere. They don’t travel alone, they travel in herds. They are together standing still. Every one (6) saw the same 2 fucking monkeys). So, that’s 2 monkeys going towards the river. Every monkey holds 1 parrot in their hands (the monkeys are holding 1 parrot with both hands, not each of their hands = 2 hands with 1 parrot). 2 parrots are going with the 2 monkeys towards the river. Yes, like it or not they are going too. Now 1 rabbit, 2 monkeys, and 2 parrots going towards the river = 5 fucking animals going towards the river. This is the only answer. There can’t be 2. And yes u brainless mitochondria, parrots are indeed animals. You must be your father’s brother to have such a thought. Your welcome. Glad I could help

  72. 24 animals towards the river.
    Conclusion….
    The rabbit just saw a 6 elephants while each elephants saw 2 monkeys ( 6×2=12)
    So.there’s a 12 monkeys towards the river while each monkey holds a 1 parrot in their hands (12+12=24)

    1. Birds are neither mammals (they don’t have mammary glands) nor reptiles (they are not cold blooded), but instead belong in a grouping all their own. The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles.

  73. Answer is 4. Read the question carefully, it say EVERY monkey hold 1 parrot, they r holding the same parrot together! Just like EVERY elephant saw 2 monkey, its the same monkey! So 1 rabbit, 2 monkey, 1 parrot

  74. Birds are neither mammals (they don’t have mammary glands) nor reptiles (they are not cold blooded), but instead belong in a grouping all their own. The bird group is one of six basic animal groups, with the others being amphibians, fish, invertebrates,mammals and reptiles.

  75. A rabbit saw 6 elephants while going to the river.
    Therefor, just the rabbit was going to the river. 1
    Each elephant saw 2 monkeys going to the river. There were 6 elephants. 6 x 2 = 12
    Elephants only saw the monkeys going towards the river.
    Each monkey held a parrot in their hands. There were 12 monkeys. 12
    1 + 12 + 12 = 25

  76. that why this is a “puzzle”. they wrote it that way to trick your mind. Birds are animals. Guess your always on Science classes..

  77. Any living thing is an animal. Animal definition; a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli.

  78. The parrot is a medium sized group of birds, with the parrot being best known for it’s extremely brightly coloured feathers, and the ability of some parrot species to talk, as these species of parrots are able to mimic sounds made by other animals such as humans.

  79. You see, you could go all technical saying only 4 because the question asks ‘How many animals are going TOWARDS the river?’ and the rabbit is going TO the river 😛

  80. The fastest animal on the planet (albeit for a very short time) is the rabbit that the peregrine falcon is chasing. 😂

  81. You could argue that the answer is 5 if the GROUP of 6 elephants saw 2 monkeys going to the river, with each monkey carrying a parrot = 2 monkeys + 2 parrots + the rabbit = 5 animals going to the river

  82. I see it as 1 rabbit, 6 elephants, 2 monkeys, because all 6 elephants saw the same 2 monkeys, and 4 parrots making that 13 animals because lets face it the average person will lump the bird in with the term animal.

  83. The rabbit was not going to the ‘river’, it was going to a place called ‘River’, notice the capitalized word making it a proper noun

  84. The animal kingdom contains birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and even invertebrates. Therefore a Parrot is infact an animal.

  85. as per grammer.. its 13 1rabbit n 12 monkey.. its not 3 or 25.. or u are all wrong..
    parrot is a bird n will remain bird.. 13 is true n correct answer.

  86. if the ansewr 3 was so easy why u people are grabbing hairs n pulilng it off.. its not that simple.. the answer is not 3. its not 25

  87. 4 animals are going towards the river. The rabbit it going to the river, the destination. the 2 monkeys carrying 1 parrot each, are going towards the river, towards being direction.

  88. You are all wrong. The puzzle is grammatically wrong. It can be 1 rabbit saw 6 elephants while IT WAS going to the river or it can be 1 rabbit saw 6 elephants while THEY WERE going to the river. The predicate is missing who is going to the river
