A BRAIN teaser has confused people on TikTok as they try to figure out what’s wrong in a sequence of numbers.
If you’re a fan of our optical illusions, you’ll be able to solve this eye-testing puzzle.
The video maker showed them a piece of paper with the numbers – 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and asked them to find the mistake.
When given the piece of paper, the two read the numbers and then one of them pointed to the misspelled word and said, “It looks like it’s a misspelled word but that’s how you misspelled it, yeah Are not?”
They read the prompt: “Can you find the mistake?” but then back to the number sequence, questioning the color in which the numbers are written.
Can you imagine it?
It has nothing to do with the color of the numbers.
If you still can’t find the error, look closely at the wording of the question.
Here is it! The word “the” is written twice in the question.
The people in the video didn’t solve the puzzle at the time the video was cut.
If you don’t find the error in 10 seconds, don’t feel bad. It also confuses others.
One TikTok user wrote in the video’s comments: “It took me longer than I’d like to admit, I’m tired.”
“It’s funny how the brain automatically adjusts for things like this! Found it but I’ve certainly lost a bit.”
The third man interjected: “Give me a minute.”
“Actually I didn’t understand and had to read the comments,” said one commenter with a face down emoji.
