Teacher wasn’t expecting this answer. So she asked again, “Are you sure?”
Student responded in yes.
Teacher thought that may be she should try again, may be student didn’t get question right. This time she asked, “How many kidney do you have?”
This time student responded, “Two.”
Teacher was happy to get right answer. Still asked student, “If you knew right answer then why did you say four before?”
At this, student innocently replied, “At that time, you asked me how many kidneys do we have! We have four – Two yours and two mine. “We” is an expression used for plural.”
