Only the sharpest minds can crack this tricky brainteaser in under 11 seconds

Only those with eagle-eyes will be able to find the odd number out in this tricky brainteaser in under 11 seconds.

Brainteasers are a great way to push one of the body’s most important organs to its limits. They can come in three different forms. They can be analytical, observational, or mathematical.

This latest brainteaser from SME Insider is an example of an observational brainteaser. Your task is to find the odd number out as quickly as you can.

In the box above is a series of white threes on a black background, but only one of them is a six.

Your task is to find that number six as quickly as you can. The people behind the brainteaser said: “This deceptively simple puzzle requires logical thinking and a creative eye in equal measure, making it a fascinating test of your observational skills.

“By examining the puzzle from various perspectives, you’ll find the hidden solutions that lurk beneath the surface.”


    Did you spot the number six? No worries if not, the answer is above. You can spot it in the bottom right-hand corner of the image, it’s second from the right on the seventh row from the bottom.

    While brainteasers are a great way to kill some time on the train in the morning or a quiet moment, some experts believe they could reduce someone’s risk of dementia.

    The reason for this is because brainteasers and other brain puzzles act like exercise for the mind, they help keep it sharp and healthy. However, this doesn’t mean that brainteasers can reduce someone’s risk of developing the condition.

    Dementia is one of the UK’s largest killers and it is currently incurable. In recent years, great progress has been made in treatments for the condition, but so too has there been a sharp rise in the number of dementia patients.

    Chief Medical Officer at Alzheimer’s Research UK told the Daily Express: “Decades of hard work have brought us to a tipping point – particularly with the first new Alzheimer’s drugs in over 20 years finally on the horizon.

    “We’re also seeing revolutionary new diagnostics showing real promise, with blood tests for Alzheimer’s now poised to enter the clinic…. there is hope and optimism on the horizon.”
