That Riddle
Closed

Regards the recent internet pseudo-riddle posted TolunaIE says, '[u]nfortunately, there were no winners this time around with the correct answer[,] [a]ccording to the logic we used, the answer is 1.' However, it doesn't include how or why the sole allegedly correct answer is 1. Unfortunately without an explanation the participants don't actually know how any of their given answers were not allegedly correct, and are none-the-wiser.
Incidentally, in the whole explanation as to how it's not really solvable per se thanks to inherent ambiguity I did actually include two ways one could get to an answer of 1 person, and that includes the so-called riddle being merely an exercise of sheer pedantry:
'The really pedantic reading answer is also 1, the one and only person specified to have entered the bedroom.'

This type of questions/riddles are often use duing IQ tests, they are not stupid they requires logic and reading with understanding. When I used to take part in school's maths competitions those type of questions were often asked.

Agree with you that only one person is stated to have entered the room, but where are all the other people supposed to be then?
