    Simple: 7 fishes
    fishes don't drown and they are inside a concealed tank, which makes swimming out impossible. But 3 of the 10 died, leaving 7 fishes remaining.

  • Well since no one else has something to say, you both tried but it's Ayomide that got it right even though the explanation is more complicated than it needed to be.
    The answer is 7 fish.
    Fish can't drown! They breathe water! And if they are in a concealed tank, they can't swim away.
    However, I will be sending you both airtime for trying but the winner will get a bigger price.
    Ayomide, leave you number to claim your price.
    Vivian, I still have your number but you can still it drop it for confirmation.

  • Who else has a contribution to make?

    The answer is 7. In a
    particular tank, 2 fishes drowned that means they are still in the tank, 4 swarm away, where did they swim to, so automatically we still av them in the tank. Then 3 died, The
    remaining 1 was left unharmed, it
    neither drowned, swarm away or
    died but still in that same tank. So the total number of fish is 2+4+ the remaining one making seven

    Hmmmmmm.. What a brain teaser.The answer is 10. In a particular tank, 2 fishes drowned in that same tank, 4 swarm away. To where? That same tank but to another area. Then 3 died, their bodies were where? That same tank. Suming up to 9. The remaining 1 was left unharmed, it neither drowned, swarm away or died but still in that same tank. The total of the fishes in the tank is 10. I just hope am right.
