這道親屬關係燒腦題在國外火了 難倒眾網友

最近,國外社交網站上一道題目火了,難倒了一眾歪果仁,火爆程度不亞於當年「藍黑」的還是「白金」的裙子……

這道題江湖人稱「特蕾莎女兒之謎」,謎面其實很簡單,就是有點……繞……

來看題:

"If Teresa's daughter is my daughter's mother, what am I to Teresa?"

如果特蕾莎的女兒是我的女兒的媽媽,那我是特蕾莎的誰?

題目還給了5個選項:

a) Grandmother外婆

b) Mother媽媽

c) Daughter女兒

d) Granddaughter外孫女

e) I am Teresa.我是特蕾莎

對親屬關係本來就沒有分太清的國外網友都被繞暈了……

Kayla:我、媽媽和麥克三個人剛花了10分鐘來解這道「特蕾莎女兒之謎」。

Nick Soldan:如果特蕾莎的女兒是我女兒的媽媽,特蕾莎是我的什麼?真是個謎啊!解不開!求助!!!

特蕾莎是誰?!!

特蕾莎的女兒是誰?!!

特蕾莎女兒的媽媽又是誰???!!

大概覺得這道題太難,BuzzFeed給出了題目的解題關鍵……

我女兒的媽媽(my daughter's mother)……其實,就是我呀!

這樣一來,這道題就變成了:如果特蕾莎的女兒是我,那我是特蕾莎的什麼?(If Teresa's daughter is me, what am I to Teresa?)

顯而易見,這道題選C,女兒(daughter)。

你是不是也恍然大悟?

什麼?你說一道不過癮?雙語君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)精選了一套題,看看你能做對幾道?答案在圖片下面,沒讀完題不許偷看哦~~

幾個女兒

a. I have ten or more daughters.

b. I have less than ten daughters.

c. I have at least one daughter.

If only one of these statements is true, how many daughters do I have?

a.我有十個或者更多女兒。

b.我有少於十個女兒。

c.我至少有一個女兒。

如果三個陳述中只有一個是真的,那麼我有多少個女兒?

答案:

I do not have any daughters and the true statement is: I have less than ten daughters.

我沒有女兒。唯一真實的陳述是:我有少於十個女兒。

因為如果我有女兒,那麼就一定有兩個陳述為真,因此,答案是我沒有女兒。
