There are 3 possiblities

1. Father : 60 yrs old & Son: 06yrs old
2. Father : 51 yrs old & Son: 15yrs old
3. Father : 42 yrs old & Son: 24yrs old.

Thinking the genuine situation option 2 is the best fitted.

Thus their ages could be 51 yrs old(father) and 15 yrs old(son)

Some cards from an ordinary pack of playing cards were laid out on a table with face upwards. I thought of one card there, The KING OF HEARTS. I announced that I would tell Mr. A the value and Mr. B the suit of my chosen card. I whispered to Mr. A that I had chosen a KING and whispered to Mr. B that I had chosen a HEART. Their subsequent discussion went as below:

A: “I do not know the card that was chosen”

B: “I knew you would not”

A: “I still do not know the card, but at least I can now work out its colour”

B: “Now at last I can work out what card it is”

A: “So can I”

What is the least number of cards which could be on the table?
