A teacher decided to test a student who didn't pay attention during her lecture. Teachers are saddled with the responsibility of instilling knowledge in their students, so it is only reasonable for these educators to notice when a child is not getting the knowledge required.
Most times, it may be that the students are not cautious and conscious of their environment; hence, it hinders their concentration in class.

This particular teacher was quick to spot that the student was distracted in her class, so she asked him a question to test him. She devised a means to test his concentration level by asking him about numbers.
The educator's question referred to birds on a fence. She wanted her pupil, Johnny to identify the number of birds on a wall if one got shot. Fortunately, Johnny showed his teacher how "smart" he is, even though he didn't tackle the question correctly, his answer was impressive.

Their conversation went thus:
" If there are three ducks sitting on the fence, and you shoot one, how many are left?"

"Because the shot scared them all off."
"No, two, but I like how you're thinking."

After this session, Johnny decided to test his tutor. His question was not number related but involved thoughtfulness. He asked:
"If you see three women walking out of an ice cream parlor, one is licking her ice cream, one is sucking her ice cream, and one is butting her ice cream, which one is married?"
The teacher's response was wrong according to her student, and he emulated her answer delivery tactics. The educator replied that the woman sucking her ice cream must be the married one.

Johnny's response was:
"No, the one with the wedding ring, but I like your thinking!"
