This classic illusion consists of a series of shelves attached to a wall, but exactly how many shelves are there ? Try counting them from the left and then from the right, are they the same ?

5 shelves: top, bottom, 2 in between on the left, 1 in between on the right. (cover the middle of the images vertically and you will see it easily).

there is exactly 2 shelves..... one on the botto one on the top. So it is not 3 or 4 or even 5. It is just 2 because the rest dont connect to eachother.

i think the right side is correct, they just added an extra rectangle on the left, then it gives us the illusion there is 4 when there really is 3.
