Birbal understood his trick and answered, “ My lord, there are ninety five thousands four hundred and sixty three crows in our Kingdom.” 

Astonished by his immediate reply, Akbar asked, “ Birbal, how do you know such an exact number? What if we have more than what you said or less than what you said.”

For this Birbal replied, “ My lord, if we have more numbers then the crow from our neighboring village must have come to visit someone. And if the number is less than some of our crows must have gone to another neighboring village.”
