This question was asked in the "Who wants to be a millionaire in Turkey" contest and the competitor, who did not know what the narcissist number was, withdrew without entering the answer.

Question is this:

Which of following numbers is not a narsist number? (so 3 of them are narsist)

a) 153
b) 370
c) 371
d) 406

d) 406

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_number

A number that is the sum of its own digits each raised to the power of the number of digits.

153  = 13 + 53 + 33

43 + 03 + 63 = 280  not 406  so 406 is not a narcissistic number.
