Answer: ‘If I had 4 eggs’

  • The answer is 3.

To begin with, the riddle says ‘If I had 4 eggs’ but this is a scenario only and you didn’t have any eggs in the first place. So that’s 0 eggs.

Then the thief gave you 3 eggs.

The rooster laid 5 more but that is impossible so therefore 0 eggs here.

The final calculation is 0+3+0=3.
