We all love a challenging riddle and exercise our brains, and this is definitely a good one. Are you ready to wake up and face this puzzle?

In the image below, you'll see a red dress that has holes in it. The big question is: how many holes are in the red dress? It's not as easy as you might think!

This looks easy at first, but make sure you challenge yourself to think critically about the question. What you first see is not always the final answer. 

Brainteasers are a fun way to sharpen your focus and keep your mind clear, even as you start to age. Clear up the brain fog that's been collecting in your head by solving this riddle. Do you think you figured it out? Remember, it's not hard, just a little tricky! 

Scroll down for the answer!


There it is! There are, of course, the obvious holes, but 'two holes' isn't the final answer! What most people don't realize is that there is also a hole for your head, your arms, and your legs! That adds up to six holes.

There's still one more catch: because you can see completely through the dress, that means there must be two holes in the front of the dress and two holes in the back of the dress. In total, that leads us to our final answer: eight holes!

Did you guess right? If not, which holes did you miss? Let us know in the comments and pass this along to your friends and family to see if they can solve this tricky puzzle, too!
