I was confused with this, and it was not only once, but it happens from time to time to /w wrong bot. If it was changed to la-custom or custom-la everyone would understand why is like that. But like this you must to read on forum to understand, even if you don't understand..

The riddle is ambiguous and has no definitive answer

We can interpret someone's mother as mother of a person named Someone, then the answer would be "Someone". We can follow the analogy and then the answer would be "East". We can also interpret someone's mother as a mother of someone (= anyone) then the answer is arbitrary.

We can also assume that the said mother has more than 4 children - 4 sons and x daughters where the mentioned "Someone" (in both interpretations) is a daughter, then again the answer is arbitrary.

Thus the riddle is invalid and the topic should be locked

It has a definite answer, and all you said is incorrect.

Ofcourse you can also just read the text and say that the answer is "What"

But like i said the riddle itself is incorrect, as in this interpretation there is no question which makes the "riddle" a simple statement.

Either way you need to find more smart riddles, looking forward to you posting them

Thats the point of the riddle to pay attention to the details.

What is the correct answer.

The problem in posting riddles here is that probably any of them can be easily googled, but I might figure out something.
