You are back in medieval England. You have come to the Kings Dungeon to visit a prisoner. The guard informs you that only relatives of prisoners are allowed a visit. You explain that you are in fact a relative. As you point to the prisoner you wish to see you say, "This man's father is my father's son. And I am an only child."

What is your relation to the prisoner?

Answer: You are his father.

Prisoner




If you were running a race and you passed the person in 2nd place what place would you be in now?


You would be in 2nd. You thought first place right? Well you passed the guy in second place, not first.





What relation do you have to the prisoner?


Answer

You are the prisoner's father.


Break it down in parts.


The word "is" is the equivalent of an equal (=) sign in mathematics.


(A) "This man's father" = (B) "My father's Son."

So, A = B.


That means that B = "This man's father."


The question is, who is B?


If you are "an only child" then "Your father's son" is you!

So B = You.
