The Acrobat's Money
posted by AllisonChow - October 30 2011 10:50:21 AM
Ashley was a famous acrobat. Ashley signed a will that said when Ashley dies, all Ashley's money would go to Ashley's closest living relative. One day Ashley did die and they had a case at court to see who would keep the money. A man named Bob said,"I am Ashley's grandson." Then a woman named Sue said,"I am Ashley's niece and Bob's grandmother is not Ashley." They are both telling the truth. who gets to keep the money?

Sue does. She is Ashley's daughter. Bob is Ashley's grandson. Ashley was the name of both his grandfather, and his grandmother.

Or Bob, depending on the relationship between Sue and the female Ashley.
