    i asked this question to nearly 30 people, and in that group of 30 people around 10 were smart and the other 20 were not so smart. only the not smart people got this question correct.

    the answer isn't 54325, all the smart people surprisingly said 54325, but all the not smart ones said it is "1". The answer actually is "1" because a=b, and therefore b=a. 1=5, hence 5=1. funny right?

    Yes, there are tricky questions like this. Smart people looks for something smart. There's lots of such strange riddles, I actually don't like such ones, because you need to think differently, than you actually think about things, when you are thinking for the answer... Usually people with lower IQ answer them alright. I did such a test at my school once...
    Sorry for my poor English skills, I've learned it by myself... Trying to improve them, feel free to criticize, hehe.

    hence 54325 = 1 as well ?

    you see, clever people extend logic to its utmost limits, even when that stretches beyond common sense
