This type of puzzle is referred to as an informal fallacy puzzle. The general idea is that the logic that is presented to the user appears at first glance to be correct, but in actuality has an error in it.
Actually,
Total dollar spend by parents = 9+9 = 18
=>17spend on lunch + 1dollar (Amitabh kept for himself)`

Actually got 18(9+9) from the parents for the expense of rs 17/- the balance of Rs1 is with the son itself.

The driver of the taxicab was wanting in civility, so Mr. Sharma asked him for his number.
"You want my number, do you?" said the driver. "Well, work it out for yourself. If you divide my number by 2,3,4,5 or 6 you will find there is always 1 over; but if you divide it by 11 there ain't no remainder. What's more, there is no other driver with a lower number who can say the same."

Jay was planning to go to another country to visit relatives. The trip to the airport was long and boring, and since he didn't have a license, his mother had to drive him.

Jay was driven to the airport once from his house when he realized that he forgot his passport at home. His mother went back, got it, then brought it back. He then said he left his wallet at home. She went to get it, came back, and he had some more bad news. He left his cell phone at home. She went to go get it, but exactly halfway back, she found it in the glove compartment. She brought it back to him immediately, and he went off with his flight.

Assuming that the average car speed was 75 kph, the distance between the house and airport was exactly 50 km, and ignoring facts such as U-Turn time, time talking to son at the airport, time getting items, etc, how long did it take for Jay to leave, with the time starting when he left his house?
