This is the only way to figure out this riddle…Perception. Since we read that the blind beggar has a brother, we automatically assume the beggar to be a male too. Right? However, assumptions never usually lead to the right solutions.
The answer is in fact sister. The blind beggar is a sister to the dead brother. This riddle tests the brain’s frontal lobe which is used for assumptions, analysis, and hypothesis-testing. Did you guess sister? Or were you fooled by the confusing riddle. Don’t worry either way, we wanted to leave with a monster challenge to really get you thinking.
