Hayden had a mother.

Riddle: Hayden had a mother. She had three twin sons; Marcus and Angus. Who is the 3rd son?

The answer to the riddle is hidden (or maybe explicit) in the first sentence. It starts out as “Hayden” who has a mother. Then, continues with “She” which refers to Hayden’s mother. But at this point, our brain might automatically think that “She” refers to Hayden since it seems like the subject of the first sentence continues to the second sentence.

 

But that’s not the case! Hayden’s mother had three sons. Two of them are named Marcus and Angus. Whose name is left out? HAYDEN!

Answer: Hayden!
