Solution

He was left with thirteen sheep.

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

In an interview for a Business school entrance exam the interviewer told the candidate "You have the option to choose between one tough question and 20 easy ones. Make your pick." 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?"
