Try to count this...................

Fun riddle of the day;
There are 2 ducks in front of 2 other ducks.
There are 2 ducks behind 2 other ducks.
There are 2 ducks beside 2 other ducks.
How many ducks are there?
always play your best, and keep counting.....

well my 1st guess would be 12.

But that depends on one thing. in each case it says there are 2 ducks associated with 2 "other ducks" It was undclear if there was a pair of ducks for EACH other duck or if there was one duck for each other duck.


I will also assume that "other ducks" are outside the population of any prementioned ducks. That is, "other ducks" can't be reused.


So anyway either 12 or 18 ducks :)

Daisy was inside doing the dishes, so she doesnt count.

Daffy was trying to upset 'that dang rabbit', so he doesnt count.

So that leaves.... Donald, Huey, Duey and Luey.

So my guess is 4.
