Because his wife plus the others equals exactly nine people. Her answer would be 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,or 8. OK, the answer is hard to come to but I think a clue is knowing that when you shake hands with someone, that counts as a handshake on there end also. Don't forget about the professor. I have a feeling this one titled the way it is for a reason. I just can't figured it out yet. I can't help but think that there is some orderly process of elimination involved.

I hate to be the one to point this out, but if he asked the wife, then why would we have to figure out how many hands she shook? Couldn't we just ask him? Maybe he doesn't know how many HE shook. In that case... hey, wow, the answer is still four. for both. Amazing. At least, next time you want to complicate things, could you post this on the main thread, instead of posting on the main thread that you're starting your own thread? Werebear
