Friday Brain Teaser – The Answer

So last week, I set the following brain teaser:

You have a basket containing 5 apples. You are looking after 5 children. Each child must be given 1 whole apple.How can you give each child an apple and leave 1 apple in the basket?

The answer is as follows:

You give four children an apple each, this leaves one child without an apple. Leave the final apple in the basket and give the 5th child the basket. Therefore, each child has an apple but one apple is left in the basket.
