At the end of 28th day it will be at 28th step, then it will not have enough steps to go up.

This question is to see if you can see past the basic maths. The basic maths answer is that the net result is 30 days to reach the top. But the real answer as suggested is 28 because on day 28 he starts on 28 goes up 3 and is at the top.

The real question should be, how long would it take to get to the top.

It depends which step the ant starts on.
