Kindergarten homework should be easier than easy for an adult, right?

Think again.

One mother named Royce Winnick recently shared a photo of her kindergartner's homework assignment that left every adult who saw it scratching his or her head. In fact, the photo has since gone viral as adults online are left wondering what the answer could be.

The assignment seems to be based around the letter "T." To start, the young student must first draw out capital Ts followed by lowercase ones. In the next section, the pupil must "tap out the word in the picture and write the sounds you hear." Still based upon the letter T, the answers to the words the pictures illustrate are "tub," "ten," "top" and...well, no one has figured that one out yet.

The fourth picture in this series is what has both kids and adults scratching their heads. It's a picture of a grown rabbit joined by four baby ones. What would one call this that starts with the letter T?

Winnick's child answered with the word "pet," which the teacher accepted, but come to find out, the answer is "vet," said Winnick.

"We thought the assignment was ridiculous for a 5-year-old," Winnick told POPSUGAR. "I wrote the teacher about the assignment and her response was that she will be writing to the publisher about a few of these pictures."

Good plan!
