Boy: Let’s try to answer these questions. Are you ready?
Girl: Yes. What’s the first question?
Boy: How many countries are there in the world? 95? 125? 185? or 255? What do you think?
Girl: Oh, lots and lots! 255, I think.
Boy: Wrong! There are 185.
Girl: Oh. Your turn now! How many bones have you got in your body? 206? 166? 126? or 36?
Boy: Well, we’ve got two in each arm, lots in our hands and feet and lots in our backs. I don’t know. About 126.
Girl: Wrong! There are 206.
Boy: Really? Your turn again; an easy one. How many thieves did Ali Baba meet? Twenty? Forty? Fifty? Or a hundred?
Girl: Forty! Ali Baba and the forty thieves.
Boy: Right! I said it was easy.
Girl: An easy one for you now. How many legs has a spider got? Four? Six? Eight? Or ten?
Boy: Well, I know it’s more than four. It’s either six or eight. I think it’s eight. Am I right?
Girl: Yes! What’s next?
Boy: Let’s see if you can answer this — how many tigers are there in the world today? 70,000? 17,000? 7,000? or 700?
Girl: I know there aren’t many. I hope it’s more than 700. Is it 7,000?
Boy: Yes — that’s bad news! I thought there were more than that.
Girl: Last question. How many is the Roman number XXIV? Is it 14? 24? 26? or 204?
Boy: X is ten, I think. Or is it 100? I is one and V is five. So it’s 26. Oh, no — when the I is in front of the V, it means it’s four, not six, so it’s 24. Right?
Girl: Finally, yes!
