Best Answer

It's simple probability problem two jars are shown to the monkey one with 6 peanuts and 3 rocks

One with 100 peanuts 100 rocks

One object is taken and hidden in the hand nearest the jar the monkey picks a hand he thinks might have a peanut the smart ones pick the hand near the small jar because it has 2 times the probability
