Answer: Mr. and Mrs. Lee have six daughters. Each daughter has one brother. How many people are in the Lee family?

The Question: Mr. and Mrs. Lee have six daughters. Each daughter has one brother. How many people are in the Lee family?

Answer: 9 people

Because each daughter has the same brother plus Mr. and Mrs. Lee. So the total is 6 + 1 + 2 = 9 people.

  1. No. The answer is 10.

    Mr and Mrs Lee – 2
    Their 6 daughters – 6
    The 1 brother of the Lee’s 6 daughters – 1
    The 1 brother of Mrs Lee (because she’s someone’s daughter, too) – 1

    The riddle doesn’t say, “Each of Mr and Mrs Lee’s daughters has 1 brother.”

    It says, “Each daughter.”
