Question is asked that how many kittens did travelers met, it means ,,if travelers meet kittens this implies that travelers meet to the cats if he meets to cat he also meet to wives if he meets to the wives then it implies he also meets to the man as well. Becuase kittens are kids of cats which are n sacks and sack are in hand of wives ,and al wives belong to the man. This example relates to if somebody visits to new york then it means he also visted to america....
