**Riddle**: You walk in a room and on the bed, there are 2 dogs, 4 cats, one giraffe, 5 cows and a duck, 3 chickens flying above a chair; how many legs are on the floor?

**Answer: **There are a total of 6 legs on the floor. But how?

All of the animals in this room are all on the bed :O but you are not on the bed. So, only your two legs and the four legs of the bed are touching the floor 😀 Because of that, the correct answer is 6.

So the chair has no legs?

I said the same, answer should be 10

The chair is also on the bed

Said who? Ty

It’s not stated that the chairs are on the bed. Also your legs are not touching the ground your feet are. So 2 chairs =8 bed+4 total 12

It only say one chair

Your feet are tourching the floor so your legs are actually not

Your feet are part of your legs

It’s 10

Lol, my feet are not a part of my legs. You must look interesting. XD

Correct.

I’m being told that 4 is the incorrect answer, that the answer is 6. And this article is stating the same.

But unless the person entered the room on their knees, not walking in, the answer is 4

I think it is 10,you have 2 leg,chair had 4,the bed has 4,2+4+4=10

10 would be my answer. Your 2 legs the legs of the 4 legs of the chair chair and the 4 legs of the bed. Then technically your legs wouldn’t be on the floor would be your feet.

Actually 16 chickens don’t fly…

I agree the bed has 4 legs as well

What about the chair legs

The answer is 10

4 legs of the bed

4 legs of the chair

And my two legs

I totally agree!

I say the answer is 0, you enter a room that has a floor so the ground is outside so there are no legs on the GROUND

the ground extends over roughly 30% of the Earth so I think it’s safe to assume there are a few legs on the ground.

Where do you even see the word “ground” mentioned in the riddle?

The answer to the riddle is whatever the riddle author wants it to be. It is their rules. Our answers which might be equally appropriate, may not be the correct answer for the author. Since it is a RIDDLE and not a math question, there must be some word play or other trick but I do not yet see it either.

Why do you think the bed has 4 legs? Lots of beds don’t have 4 legs (platform beds, water beds, murphy beds, etc)

Well, you could be legless and in a wheelchair also?

Answer should be 8.

4 bed

4 chair

0 animal

0 me my feet are on floor not legs

The bed and the chairs legs are also not on the floor, just the feet. So with your logic, the answer should be 0.

Correct. 10.

By your logic most chairs have pads on the bottom of the feet as do beds. So the answer can be any damn thing the person want it to be. That is why these are stupid.

10 should be the answer

Who says bed legs? And not all beds have legs. Mine for example? The answer is 6. 2 human 4 chair

Chair is on the bed

bean bag chair?

The answer should be 10(4 bed legs, 4 chair legs, and your 2 legs)

I think they meant the chair not the bed lol

I think the correct answer is indeed 10. 4 for the bed. 4 for the chair and two for yourself.

You enter a room. 2 dogs, 4 horses 1 giraffe and a duck are lying on the bed. 3 chickens are flying over a chair. How many legs are on the ground?

The dogs, horses, giraffe and a duck are on the bed… you have 3 chickens flying over a chair… and you are also in the room.

So…

The bed has 4 legs

The chair has 4 legs

You have 2 legs

4+4+2= 10

Wrong the chair has 4 legs answer is 10

It should be 10 then 4 legs of bed , 4 legs of the chair and your 2 legs ?

What about the legs of the chair?

It should be 10. Chair legs has 4 bed legs has 4 and person legs is 2

You forgot the legs of the chair so it would be 10

The answer is 8, 4 on the chair, 4 on the bed. Your feet are on the ground not your legs.

My thought, as well. I was counting 10 legs.

I think the answer is 10 because don’t forget the chair also has 4 legs

The correct answer should be zero, first your legs don’t touch the ground your feet do, second you enter a room which means you are on a floor and not the ground.

My legs aren’t on the ground be feet are. This was bad

I thought the same!

Agree what about the 4 chair legs.

Even a rocking chair has 2

Wrong its 10 . Or divan bed has no legs ? My sons bed has 6 legs so would be 12.. badly thought out.

LEGS… not feet? I think that that’s not important.

Chickens can’t fly but they can lift off for a moment or 2, especially when they see my mug and big feet enter the room, & they can smell that I was just at KFC for hot wings. (If I had bought the chicken legs, and still had them in my hand when I entered that room, then I might just drop all 12 (dozen bucket) of them on the ground at the sight of all the goings-on, which would be 12 LEGS.

I’m not currently a wheel chair user, so my LEGS are 2.

It could be a platform bed… water bed or such, but I’ll assume it is a standard 4 LEG GIANT bed, although I doubt a bed could contain so much weight unless it was platform, or 6/8/10-leg.

With all those animals and my big smelly feet… bed bugs? fleas? Any on the ground? Probably all spooning in the bed.

WAIT!!! it could be a Castro Convertible or a fold-down Wardrobe bed… how many legs there?

But I will go with 6 LEGS on the ground.

My answer: SIX LEGS.

You tell my chickens they can’t fly…..

The chair is also on the bed, i guess

your feet are on the floor not your legs

Doesn’t the chair have 4 legs too, ??

4 bed legs is the answer, its I walked in the room so my feet are on the floor not my legs

Feet are part of your legs
