    Since you have no brothers and sisters, the phrase "my father's son" definitely applies to yourself. Now you've been described as "this man's father". So "this man" is nobody but your son. The riddle is very easy and I can see you've already got the answer from others.

    The man is the persons cousin, and their brother is dead. Seems like a bad answer though it's all I can think of.

    You have no brothers and sisters. Man's father would be your father's brother.?? Good one! My brain hurts.

    notice that, in this type of the question, it incredibly isn't suggested that there ARE 3 uncomplicated English words that end with "gry", in basic terms that "indignant" and "hungry" are 2 that do. And interior the 2nd sentence, the single that incredibly asks the question, it does no longer specifically shrink the reply to words that end with "gry" - it in basic terms asks what the third notice is. The reader of the question ASSUMES that "the third notice" refers back to the third notice that ends with "gry", making the simultaneous assumption that there are, easily, 3 such words. it is organic through fact why else might each and every person positioned those 2 sentences mutually?! Why? To confuse each and every person! as quickly as you settle for the theory that the two sentences are no longer in any way related to one yet another, it incredibly is obvious that nowhere is it suggested there are, easily, 3 uncomplicated English words that end with "gry". it incredibly is stable, through fact there are not! There are thousands of words that would qualify in case you drop the "uncomplicated" limit. yet there in basic terms are not any uncomplicated words, different than "indignant" and "hungry", that end with "gry".

    the man is the son

    the phrase "This man" refers to the son of the person speaking.

    Your son's father is yourself. Your father's son is also yourself.

    So my son's father (myself) is my father's son (also myself).

    So "this man" is the son of whoever is saying this.
