Two fathers and two sons were walking along a road. They happened to find three silver coins lying in their path. They picked up the coins and divided them evenly--each of them receiving one coin. How is this possible?


Answer

There were only three people walking along the road--a grandfather, his son and his grandson. Thus, there were two fathers and two sons. Each one took 1 coin.
