Solution

He was left with thirteen sheep.

The phrase "all but thirteen died" actually means that all except thirteen died.

Sen smartly answered, "I would go for the tough one." On his response the examiner asked him "What came first -- the hen or the egg?" Sen was nonplussed for a moment, but after a while firmly replied "The egg". On this the examiner with piqued interest asked "Why so?"

There once was a somewhat eccentric wine seller who died, leaving three sons behind him. He also left 7 full barrels of wine, 7 half-full barrels of wine, and 7 empty wine barrels. Being somewhat eccentric, he noted in his will that each son was to receive the same number of full barrels, half-full barrels, and empty barrels. How is this possible?
