A man named Ram was hurrying to get ready for a dinner party when Shyam rang his doorbell.
"I'm just rushing off to a dinner party," said Ram, "but I'm sure it would be fine if you came along."

So the two went off together. When they arrived at the party, Ram, who always enjoyed getting people to use their heads, introduced Shyam to the other guests with the following rhyme:

"Brothers and sisters have I none,
But this man's father is my father's son."

How were Ram and Shyam related?

There were two grandmothers and their two granddaughters.
There were two husbands and their two wives.
There were two fathers and their two daughters.
There were two mothers and their two sons.
There were two maidens and their two mothers.
There were two sisters and their two brothers.
Yet there are only six, who are buried here,
All are born legitimate and relationships clear.
How can this happen?
