The question asked was as follows:

Do you know how to divide them to 5 kids so that each one has an apple and one apple stays in the basket?

I believe the correct answer would be "yes" or "no."

Apples - Back to the Logic Puzzles
A basket contains 5 apples. Do you know how to divide them to 5 kids so that each one has an apple and one apple stays in the basket?

Ooh, I can't believe nobody saw the alternate solution.

Because the wording was not precise enough, there could be more than 5 apples in the basket! It never said "only 5".

Given the solution to some of the other puzzles here, this is a perfectly valid interpretation. He he he.

I don't understand why people are guessing answers. Look at the real solution, then post.
