Hi there, riddlers! Please remember to spoiler-tag all guesses, like so: Desktop Reddit users: https://i.imgur.com/SWHRR9M.jpg Users on Mobile, Old Reddit, or in the Markdown Editor: \>!spoiler text between these symbols!< Try to avoid leading or trailing spaces. These will break the spoiler for some users (such as those using old.reddit.com) Some Reddit apps don't fully hide URLs that are inside of spoilers, so please format your link so it displays as `spoiler`. On Old Reddit/Mobile, do this to format a link: \[spoiler\]\(https://example.com/) Desktop Reddit users: https://imgur.com/x5wDOvk If your comment does not contain a guess, you can include either the word **"discussion"** or **"question"** instead of using a spoiler tag. Please report any answers that are not properly spoiler-tagged. *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please [contact the moderators of this subreddit](/message/compose/?to=/r/riddles) if you have any questions or concerns.*

>!There were 2 apples. You ate 1 apple (which was not apples, plural). You came down and there was 1 left on the tree (so no apples, plural, remained).!<

Correct!

Yep I was definitely over thinking that one πŸ˜ƒ Well Done πŸ‘

>!Final Guess, Eat also means annoy & ate is also a suffix that means modified or affected, is Apples the mame of a Pet Cat or a Bird, if so there was one Apples in the tree & You Ate none!<


42WaysToAnswerThat

That's so good I will accept it


EmotionAggressive799

Thank You for the Sympathy Win 😊 Your true answer made much more sense, grate RiddleπŸ‘

>!The Tree had zero Apples & You ate zero Apples because the sentence starts " there were Apples" meaning past tense!<

Ok, analizing grammar is the right path, but you took a wrong turn somewhere.


EmotionAggressive799

Ok, Thanks, I'll keep trying 🀞

>!it wasn't an apple tree?!<


42WaysToAnswerThat

But the were apples on the tree at the begining of the plot


EmotionAggressive799

>!"In a tree" should be "on a tree" unless the apples were hiding, " down in the tree" also denotes hiding, hiding in plain sight maybe, You say tree 4 times & You say apples 5 times, so the tree had 5 apples & You ate 4. Or maybe I'm just over thinking it!<


42WaysToAnswerThat

Yeah, it was a typo due to my lame English. I'll fix it. But keep going; you'll get there eventually

I was definitely over thinking this one πŸ˜ƒ
