Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Mad Ade is looking at a picture, in his mother's, only sibling's, nephew's house.
Someone walks by Mad Ade and asks "Who are you looking at?" Mad Ade answered "I am looking at my daughter's, only brother's, mother's, father's son-in-law's, son's, father's picture. Also, neither I nor my wife have brothers or sisters."
Whose house is Mad Ade in and who is he looking at?
Mad Ade's mother's only brother's nephew is the Mad Ade himself as Mad Ade does not have any brothers or sisters. Thus, he is in his own house.
Mad Ade's daughter's only brother = his son
Son's mother = his wife
Wife's father's son-in-law = Mad Ade himself (as his wife does not have any brothers or sisters)
Again, Mad Ade's son's father is himself.
Hence, Mad Ade is in his own house and looking at his own picture!

|Made-Ade could also be in the house of his motherīs sisterīs sonīs or daughterīs house i.e. his cousinīs house because he could have one or more maternal aunts though he has only one maternal uncle.|

|where does it mention any aunts, maternal or otherwise|

|It never mentions an Aunt. Not even to say there is not one!!! Oh dear, did we slip up by only saying only brother instead of only sibling? You are very quick to pull other peoples teasers to pieces. Why can you not accept when others do the same to you?|

|right about the "sister-sibling" thing. Mad-ade's mother's brother might have more than one nephew, the son(s) of one of the OTHER sisters who might exist. stating "only sibling" removes all doubt, as he could be in his cousin's house, given how the teaser is currently worded.|

|i think mad-ade gave correct and to the point information.Mother's only sibling's nephew can only be mad-ade himself as he does not have any brothers and sisters,and his mother has only 1 sibling who alos in turn naturally has only 1 sibling i.e. mad-ade's mother|

|Complicated. When I got to son in law I thought could have been from a prior marriage & could be anyone. I then blindly guessed "himself."|
