Its a person b/c when u r a baby u crawl on a 4's so that is 4 legs. when you learn how to walk ur on 2 that is 2 and when you get older like 60 or sumthing u are on 3 b/c u have a cane. That's the answer to the first version. The second verison is the same except when ur walking on 6 legs that is when ur old and you have a walker which ads 4 extra legs to the 2 attached 2 ur body. Got it??
