Probably questioning the CAPTCHA like everybody else.

Answer to OP: count the number of DIFFERENT letters, not TOTAL NUMBER of letters. Very poorly worded question in my estimation.

The question is actually incorrectly worded for the answer wanted. No intelligent, clearly thinking, person would ever word it that way. It's not logical and there is no reasoning that makes the [wanted] answer correct. It's just plain wrong. It's actually stupid!

It's like asking: How many cylinders are in a V6 sedan? Answer: 7
Idiotic Logic: There are 6 Piston Cylinders and one Master Brake Cylinder, which equals 7 total cylinders in the V6 sedan. STUPID!

Hi,
I think that anyone who is asked that question would immediately answer 6 & not one (1), as there is no reference to either engine or brakes.
The "average" punter will not really know that their vehicle has a Master Brake Cylinder or what it's used for.
BUT, they would know that the engine does require "cylinders" to "make the vehicle" go.

Just my take on the Q?

Stay safe.

ps. &...we cannot change the question to make it any clearer or less confusing.

I was also caught by the Q & A in the past, but the topic, and the correct reply is prominently available on the forum.

Locking this thread as redundant.
