Challenge your mind with this logic brain teaser: Which direction is the bus going?

_______________

Can you see the bus above?

Assum­ing it is mov­ing for­ward, in which direc­tion do you think it’s trav­el­ing, right or left?

Please try answer­ing on your own before check­ing below…

_______________

The answer

When most peo­ple are shown this brain teas­er, they often answer “left.”

Why?

Because you can’t see the door.”

Obvi­ous­ly, this works in coun­tries where you dri­ve on the right side of the road, like the US and con­ti­nen­tal Europe; it would be the reverse in coun­tries where you dri­ve on the left side, such as the UK.
