Okay, here is the answer.

The answer is 8! Here’s an explanation as to why 8 is the answer.

As you can see, there are two holes in the front of the t-shirt, two holes for the arms, one for the head, and the hole at the bottom. That is six of the holes, but you just see the shirt just from the front side. Look, there are two more holes in the shirt!

Remember that the shirt has a back side as well, and one would expect that there are equal holes on the back side of the shirt. If you add this to the six other holes, you will see that there are eight holes in total.
