What is the number of the parking spot?

  • One needs to find the number under the car.

    A picture of some parking spaces from the top down, appearing to be numbered "16, 06, 68, 88, ??, 98"

    Is this original??? I have seen it elsewhere long time ago, it was a classic question for primary schools/ elementary interviews...

    I believe the most obvious answer is:

    There is a usual sequence of numbers, we're just looking at it in the wrong direction. The numbers of the parking spots must be viewed from the outside in, as a driver would see them, which is upside-down from the current view.

    The shown numbers are: 86, ??, 88, 89, 90, 91. Therefore the answer is 87.
