Hard Riddle: On my way to St. Ives I saw a man with 7 wives. Each wife had 7 sacks. Each sack had 7 cats. Each cat had 7 kittens. Kitten, cats, sacks, wives. How many were going to St. Ives?
It is not clear in the question weather that LARGE family is going to St. Ives or not.
So only the person who saw them is going to the St. Ives.
Again , If we assume that they all r going to St. ives ,then :
1 Man + 7 Wife + 49 sacks + 343 Cats + 2401 Kittens = 2801.
But all this is not possible that someone is carrying 343 cats.
All upto reader what they want or assume the situation.
