None of the answers to this question are correct. For starters, a correct answer to this question would need to be an odd number. In order to not break an egg when selling eggs to the first customer, the total number of eggs would need to be odd so that 1/2 of the total number of eggs plus 1/2 egg would equal a whole number, thus not breaking an egg. All choices in this question are even numbers and divide equally, therefore when you add half an egg to the first customers order, and egg would have to be broken.
