You were in the garden, there are 34 people in the yard. You kill 30. How many people are in the garden?

@nativeamerican15,
It must be either 1 or zero - assuming the 34 people are in the yard - they are not in the garden - only you are in the garden so my guess is you used a gun and shot people in the yard - so that would just leave only 1 - you in the garden.

My other thought is 34 - as they could still be technically considered people - just dead people.

@nativeamerican15,
Unless you left the garden, you are still the only one there.

Define your terms. Does the yard include the garden?

Why would you want to kill 30 people, is this some entry test for the NRA?

@nativeamerican15,
The question is too vague, as the replies indicate

If it is a riddle then I would assume nothing, adding to what has already been asked I would ask

Who or what is killed, ants?, seconds?, people?

When numbers are involved, I don't assume base 10

I know all this seems pedantic but with riddles you have to think this way
