Only those with eagle eyes can crack this tricky brainteaser in under four seconds

People are left baffled by this tricky puzzle.

Only those with the ‘highest visual acuity’ can spot the odd number in this sea of nines.

Brainteasers and optical illusions are designed to test your focus and get you to think outside the box by forcing your brain and eyes to work together.

Take a look at the image above and you might think your brain is playing tricks on you, and that’s because it kind of is.

In the image your brain will be distracted by the sea of number nines – but don’t be fooled. It’s only trying to distract you from finding the real thing you’re looking for – number six.

Optical illusions are regarded as one of the simplest ways to determine a person’s intelligence, based on how easy they find the task. In this case, if you manage to spot the odd number without getting distracted, you have sharp eyesight and high ‘visual acuity’, according to Jagran Josh.

What makes this challenge even harder is that you only have four seconds to find it – this will really put your observational skills to the test. So, put a timer on and then try to scan each area of the image carefully.

If you don’t manage to spot the number six within the time limit, don’t worry too much. This one really is tricky, as the number six and nine are so similar – but don’t be discouraged.

Are you ready to give up?

Take another look at the picture, but this time focus on the bottom right corner. That’s where the tricky number is hiding.
