One day, the teacher inquired of Peter:"How much is four minus four ?"
一天,老师问彼得:“4减4等于几?”

Peter was tongue-tied.
彼得张口结舌答不上来。

The teacher got angry and said: "What a fool! You see, if I put four coins in your pocket, but there is a hole in your pocket and all of them leak out, now what is left in your pocket?"
老师生气地说:“真笨!你想,我要是往你口袋里放四个硬币,而你的口袋上有个窟窿,硬币全漏掉了,那么,你衣袋里还剩下什么?”

"The hole," replied Peter.
“窟窿,”彼得答道。

Notes:
tongue-tied 张口结舌
leak 漏掉
