Hi;

Au101 brings up some possibilities I did not think of and has a point.

I don't think the problem was meant to be that complicated lol But it's good to try, and like bobbym said, wait for more people to answer.

I'm not sure that's necessarily true. NN could be a woman and, therefore, the mother of "the son of NN". The father of "the son of NN" would then be her husband/spouse/whatever. Then the son of the father of NN would be NN's brother and, therefore, the uncle of "the son of NN" and the brother-in-law of "the father of the son of NN".

Presumably the use of the word "the" excludes the other possibility that "the father of NN" had many sons, and - therefore - one of them was NN's brothers.

Yeah, I would think they are both NN.

Hi;

I would agree but let's wait for more input.

Are the father of the son of NN and the son of the father of NN the same person ?

i say yes, and it's NN. Am i right ???

NN                                 Father

Son                                 NN

This how I imagined it. thanks
