Secret Portrait

Suppose you were given an assignment to draw a portrait that has one head, two eyes , one nose, one mouth, two ears, and hair (optional).
Based on the requirements…

Which portrait is better?

Old-Guy-Portrait
Stick-Figure-Portrait

The Answer

Perhaps surprisingly, the basic, stick-figure portrait would get a higher score because it fulfills all the requirements: one head, two eyes , one nose, one mouth, two ears, and hair (optional). The detailed portrait of the man has one ear, but the portrait must have two ears.
