Are you smarter than a four year old?

Which way is the bus below traveling?

To the left or to the right?

Can't make up your mind?

Look carefully at the picture again.

Still don't know?

Primary school children all over the UK were shown this picture and asked the same question.

90% of them gave this answer:

"The bus is traveling to the right."

When asked, "Why do you think the bus is traveling to the right?"

They answered:

"Because you can't see the door to get on the bus."


  1. If the door has to be seen, and we see no door wouldn't that indicate that the bus in the picture is traveling to the left in the picture. The left side of the bus is the front? The far left window would be where you see the bus driver. If it was traveling to the right, we'd see the door on the right front side...

  2. wow thats the sadest thing ive ever heard one of the smartest ones too..... go figure

  3. depends on the design of the bus. the door could be at the back :)

  4. the door could be on ant side... or it couldnt even b there

  5. depends what country you live in :)
