Why Is this Riddle so Popular on the Internet?

The main reason why this riddle is baffling people on the internet has to do with one funny, viral story about parents who were telling the riddle to their daughter.

Namely, the mom and dad managed to confuse their daughter in the 7-minute video in which they were jokingly asking from her to solve it and to explain how she solved it.

The girl’s answer, which she constantly gave with a slight frustration, was 10.

However, unfortunately for this girl, and any other people who thought this was the solution, it’s actually completely wrong!

But, don’t worry; it’s definitely not impossible to think like this, especially because at a first glance, the riddle seems to suggest that there are 4 sisters and 4 brothers.

So, what Is the Correct Answer?

The answer is actually 7, the mom and dad included, as well as the 4 sisters, and 1 brother.

As each daughter in the riddle has ONE brother only, this means they share the same, one brother. He is the only male sibling in the female-dominated pack.
