The brainteaser, which went viral after being posted on Instagram’s Threads, asks: “I have 6 eggs. I broke 2, I fried 2, I ate 2. How many eggs do I have left? 99% get it wrong.”

This conundrum has sparked a flurry of guesses, ranging from none to all six, as puzzled social media users debated the correct solution.

One confident individual said: “I’m gonna be upsetting some people now. I’m going to say six, I know you say you broke two, cooked two and ate two, but you didn’t say that ‘of the six’ you broke two, cooked two, ate two, you already told us you have six, so am I to assume you had eight to begin with.”
