A man was born before his father killed his mother and sister. How is this possible?
Yes or No questions to figure out the answer.
I know the answer to this one.
His father was in the room when he was born, his mother died giving birth to him, so he 'killed' her, and his twin sister also died.
I believe the correct version of this puzzle to be:
A man was born before his father, killed his mother, and married his sister, and yet he was considered a pleasant a polite person to all those that knew him. Explain.
The answer to this is partly given above, but I will leave you to figure out how he could marry his sister.
