# Riddle for fun Watch

Yay!

But there wouldn't be any maths involved then,nah
Haha yes but I wanted to make it a really simple one... even if it means addition of 1s.
4 boys go to a park,
Where they find a tree with 4 oranges on it.
Each ate one orange,
3 oranges were left.

How is this possible?

Note: The first to answer correctly gets to choose between the prize of a cookie or a unicorn.

UPDATE:
The winner is Little Tail Chaser!

'Each' was the name of one of the boys.

UPDATE 2:Another riddle posted...

What will attract attention but have no real value?

The first person to answer correctly will get to choose between a rainbow and a pot of gold.

UPDATE 3:
The winner is emcat!
