I enter the garden, Riddle.

Riddle: I enter the garden. There are 34 people in the backyard. You kill 34 people. How many people are in the garden?

First, let’s analyze the question. The riddle says we entered the backyard and killed 34 people. Here we need to pay attention to the garden and backyard concepts.

 

It takes place in the backyard, but at the end of the riddle asks us how many people are in the “garden”.

From this point of view, since we are the only one in the garden, we can say that the answer is 1 person.

Answer is 1 person.

    The answer is not quantifiable–we are not provided with data about the population of the Garden. Just because one person “enters” the garden, is not proof that no one was there before their entry.
