  3. some argue that 'going towards' and 'going to' was used deliberately in the riddle to twist the answer. I'll be back with my answer

  5. we'll need to know if each elephant sees a different pair of monkeys, or if all six elephants see the same pair of monkeys.

    1. All the monkeys are going the same route and all elephants are by that same route. It would stand to reason that there'd be no way 1 elephant sees a different number of monkeys from the other elephants.

    2. All the monkeys don't need to be on the same plane of view. Elephant A is facing front ('front', being the river) and sees two monkeys in front of him heading towards the river. Elephant B is backing Elephant A, and sees two monkeys hiking towards them from the village, which is in the opposite direction from the river. Both elephants have seen two separate pairs of monkeys headed to the river.

    3. But all monkeys are going "towards the river", and all 6 elephants are on the route leading to the river (according to Mr. Rabbit). Even if the elephants are backing each other and there's more than 2 monkeys on that route, there's a possibility that at least one elephant would've seen more monkeys than the others. But it says each elephant saw 2 monkeys. It's even easier imagined that way.

    4. Are you people saying it's only me that is overreacting about the deliberate use of 'to' and 'towards' to confuse in the riddle?
