1 rabbit saw 9 elephants.

Every elephant saw 3 monkeys going toward the river. This means elephants saw 27 monkeys as 9 x 3.

Each monkey had one parrot in each hand. This means on monkey had two hands. So, there are six parrots.

The answer to this is 1 rabbit + 3 monkeys + 6 parrots = 10 animals are going towards the river.
