    ???

    I don't understand, what's the trick? I got the "right number"... why wouldn't people get the "right number"?

    What's the mind trick they are relying on?

    Also got it right, but I think some people may count the words where the suggested letter is at the beginning of the word and possibly overlook the letter "f" when contained in such words as 'if' or 'of'


    Sorry if I blew the cover Tropo

    Smartypants,

    Not to worry!! :p You are right. It’s kind of psychology I guess...
    Question is how many people got it right the first time. ;)

    I've seen similar to this before. Its because most peoples minds skip over the small words such as of and as and if. We all sort of speed read in one form or another
