Mental Floss 196

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: Many underground tube stations have two escalators going up, but just one going down. Why?

A: This is because when people leave the train, they pack into groups, whereas when they go to catch the train, their flow is evener. 

This week’s challenge is:

Q: A mother was carrying a basket with 4 apples inside. She went to her 4 children and gave each of them an apple. Yet, there was still one apple left in the basket. How come?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend!
