What has four letters occasionally 12?

The answer to this riddle is “Count the number of letters in What, occasionally, always, never.” This word count trick works for any word or phrase that contains the same number of letters as the number you’re trying to count.

So if you want to know how many people are in a room, just count the number of letters in the words “person” and “people.” If you want to know how many days are in a week, just count the number of letters in the words “day” and “days.”

And so on. This trick comes in handy more often than you might think! Try it out the next time you need to know how many of something there are.
