Mmm, yeah, I see them, but then again, I don't... It's an error until you see it's an error... Very quantum, this one, eh two! Smile

'the' is repeated and the number of errors is actually 1?

This may be a 'stab-in-the-dark,' but the words 'there' and 'their' may have some cross-usage. Cheers~ Cool

No offence, but that wouldn't make any sense, grammatically. 'Their are' are two words that should never go together.

Indeed, NO offence taken!! I thought for some time on this, but am having some wierd fun trying to 'find' the second error, and you just verified my uneasy, doubting the correctness feeling of futility on the 'stab' statement. Cheers~ Cool

One would be the already mentioned second "the".

The second might be that you don't put a period in a title...

First error the obvious second - "the"

The second error is that the statement is wrong - there is only 1 error

A little riddle:

Mr and Mrs Smith have three daughters who are all married with several kids each.
Mr and Mrs Smith also have two sons who are not married. Would all the Smith family be able to fit into a Mini (four seater car)? Cool

Yes they would be able to fit.

Assumption: thier daughters are married and therefore have different surnames.

Mr and Mrs Smith and their 2 sons (also Smith's) would fit into a four seater car!

Very good. there are lots of these on the net, where I read that one and thought it was cute, and kind of easy, as I got it quickly.
The little number line teaser I never did get. A super hint on this board did it!!
