"2+2=5!!!"

 

        A teacher taught a boy math. The boy’s name was Arno. He was 7.

“Arno! How many apples would you have if I gave you 2 apples and the other apple and one more apple?” The teacher asked Arno.

“5!” Arno answered definitely.

The teacher felt worry. She expected a right answer for her easy question. She was disappointed.

“Maybe he didn’t pay attention well” She thought.

“Listen carefully, it’s so easy. You can answer it correctly if you listen carefully. How many apples would you have if I gave you 2 apples and the other apple and one more apple? ” She repeated her question.

Arno saw disappointment in his teacher’s face. So, He started counting by his fingers. He was searching an answer so that he could make his teacher glad. His trying wasn’t for finding the right answer. He just wanted to make his teacher happy.

“5” He answered anxiously.

Disappointment was still in teacher’s face.

Suddenly, She remembered that Arno like strawberry. She thought probably Arno didn’t like apple and it was the reason that he couldn’t concentrate.

“Arno! How many strawberries would you have if I gave you 2 strawberries and the other strawberry and one more strawberry?” She asked excitedly.

The teacher seemed happy. There wasn’t any stress there. So he counted with his fingers calmly. But the teacher was worry. She wanted a new success for Arno.

“4” Arno answered.

Now, the teacher smiled victoriously. She wanted to congratulate herself on her success.

But there was still one more thing…

“Arno!! How many apples would you have if I gave you 2 apples and the other apple and one more apple?” She asked again.

“5” Arno answered immediately.

The teacher astonished!

“How Arno?! How…?!!!” She shouted angrily.

“Because I have ONE apple in my bag.” He muttered.
