A husband has prepared for a candle light dinner on honeymoon for his wife. While they were having the dinner, a strong breeze flew through the open window and four candles out of ten were extinguished. After that, the husband closed the window.

Four Candles
Reason –  As the window was closed it is obvious that the six candles that were not extinguished were lit till they melted down completely. Thus only the four candles that were extinguished remain in the end.  ?
