This to me this is the trick aspect. It is asking what the best way is. It isnt actually asking how many there are, or how many you think there is. The actual number seems irrelevant. So to me, the best way of finding out how many there are is to estimate.

It is gonna drive so many people nuts till the teacher lets everyone in on the secret.

I keep wondering this, but... some frogs DO primarily live in water.

I just can't stop thinking about this... what's the bet that after all the thought we've given it, it's a really unimaginative answer?!

5. I'm going with 42 cause that's the answer to everything lol!

Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Seriously OP, whenever this teacher gives an obscure question you should just answer with "42"...

Ooh, I like this! The answer is: "Emma is a frog and frogs can't count".
