Answer & Explanation for the Mother Picture Riddle
The answer to the riddle: the woman on the left is the child’s mother.
There are multiple clues in the picture that will lead you to this answer and most have to do with the demeanor of the women. First, the woman on the left does not have her legs crossed like the woman on the right. The woman on the left is also leaning forward. Both of these signs indicate the protective, maternal instinct of a mother.
Compared to the woman on the right, the woman on the left’s hands are more visible in the image, signifying that she is ready to intervene if her child needs it. The child is facing the woman on the left while he is playing — children facing their mother while they play can be a normal activity for many.
Lastly, both the mother and child have dark hair, which is in contrast to the woman on the right who has blond hair.
