One day a friend visited my house and asked me the ages of my three sons. I replied that the product of my son's ages is 36 and the sum of their ages is equal to my house number. My friend who has a sharp and logical mind, requested me for another hint. I then told him that my eldest son has blue eyes! Following this he quickly told me their ages.

If they are all different ages, then the ages are 2, 3, and 6 years. If two of the boys are twins, then the twins are 3 years old and the eldest is 4.

What is your house number?
Shruti there isn't enough info to determine what their ages are...Atleast I can seem to find any specific details that can give us more hints.
Just tell me your house number and I'll tell you what the answer is....
wht do u wan 2 say herom?
It says the sum of their ages is equal to your house number. I asked, what is your house number.
I don't see that question in the original posting. In fact, I see no question at all. The passage has all declarative sentences and no interrogative sentences.
Ans: is 'c' The reason for the friend's confusion was that there are two age groups that have the same sum of the ages, i.e., 13. When he was told that the eldest son has blue eyes, he immediately ruled out the set of 1 year, 6 years and 6 years as in this case, the eldest children have the same age. Thus, only one possibility remained, i.e., the ages of the children are 2 years, 2 years and 9 years.
