riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday, I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

This week’s brain teaser:  Two fathers and two sons are in a car, yet there are only three people in the car. How is that possible?

  2. three people in a car two are sons and two are fathers
    answer is assuming there is a relationship between the people

    Grandmother son of grandmother grandson of grandmother
    not a father (#1)father of grandson (#2) father of great grandchild
    not a son (#1)son of grandmother (#2)son of (#1)
    IN THE CAR IN THE CAR IN THE CAR

    great grandson not in the car this is assuming that #2 son has a son
    but we are assuming relationships between the three in the car

    with three unrelated persons
    thus you have to make one of the person not male

    X has to be male Y has to be male Z cannot be male
    could be father could be father cant be father
    is a son of his parents is a son of his parents cant be son
    3 people in the car two are fathers two are sons none are related

    so another answer

  3. Ross was correct the question asked – who were fathers and who were sons it did not state they had to be in the car. So a grandmother and her son and
    her sons son – the grandson could be a father also….. just his son would not have been in the car Thus the questions answer could be grandmother , son, grandson.
