Some riddles are easy to decipher, others can be quite confusing. The ones that seem to lead to the most argument on social media or even among friends are illusions.

This is because illusions are usually based on perception. What you see can be quite different from what the other person sees. And trying to see the same thing from someone else's perspective can prove to be a challenge in many cases.

Why do people love illusions, then? Well, it can be quite fascinating when you take a moment and realize that different individuals can see the same things in their own unique ways.
