A Brain Teaser . . .

Here is a fun brain teaser to test your reasoning skills

George asks Billy how old he is. Billy replies that two days ago he was 22, but next year, he’ll be 25 years old. How can this be?

Here is the solution: When George asks the question, it is January 1. Billy’s birthday is December 31. Therefore, yesterday, Billy turned 23. Two days ago, December 30, he was 22. He will turn 24 at the end of this year, and 25 on December 31 of next year.
