Picture Puzzle Going Viral Baffles Adults, A Breeze For Children

A picture puzzle from a National Geographic show asking which way a bus is traveling is proving rather difficult for adults, but children seem to find it rather easy.

It's all about what isn't seen -- the bus doors.

Children may have an easier time as they tend to use the visual assessment that first pops into their brains. Apparently, this puzzle isn't really as complicated as grown-ups tend to make it.
