Brothers and sisters have you none but that mans brother is your brothers son who are you?

You quoted the Riddle incorectly. The real riddle quotes, "Brothers and Sisters I have none, but this man's father is my father's son." You contradicted yourself saying you had no brother and then saying that your brother has a son. The way the real riddle works is as follows: Disregard the Brothers and Sisters part, that has no significance to the riddle whatsoever and is only there to throw you off. The second part works like two statements. The first being "This man's father" which clearly showing that the man has a father. And "is my father's son" saying that the father has a son. Think on it....Your father's son. THAT"S YOU! haha. I hope this clarified the riddle to you. I had the same problem when I was in High School. Enjoy teasing your friends with it and if you have any other Riddles, please don't hesitate to send a few my way. Semper Fi

Brothers and sisters you have none but that mans father is your fathers son?

The person in question is your son. Think about it this way: Who is "your father's son"? It's you, because you have no brothers or sisters. So, you just replace "your father's son" with "you", and the riddle now reads: "...that man's father is you." Simple.

A man looks at a picture and says this man's father is my fathers son?

Himself(2) I think that the question has left out part of the original riddle which goes: "Brothers and sisters have I,none,/But this man's father is my father's son."'My father's son' is me (or my brother or my half-brother or my stepbrother); This man's father is me = I am this man's father = his son;This man's father is my brother = my brother is this man's father = his nephew;This man's father is my half-brother = my half-brother is this man's father = his nephew; This man's father is my stepbrother = my stepbrother is this man's father = no blood relation.If you include 'brothers and sisters have I, none' then the first option is the only valid one , he is looking at a portrait of his son.If the portrait was of himself he would be saying (this man's) = (my) father is my father's son (me or my brother) = I am my own father, or my brother is my father - which would be possible given an incestuous relationship with the mother.The comic song "I'm my own grandpa" plays with this notion and Wikipaedia cites "A proof that a man may be his own Grandfather.-There was a widow and her daughter-in-law, and a man and his son. The widow married the son, and the daughter the old man; the widow was, therefore, mother to her husband's father, consequently grandmother to her own husband. They had a son, to whom she was great-grandmother; now, as the son of a great-grandmother must be either a grandfather or great-uncle, this boy was therefore his own grandfather."

Brothers sisters have you none but that mans father is your father?

your grandfather is the relative which is described - a) (If I am a female) your grandfather is my father's son, therefore I am your grandaunt (your grandfather is my brother) - b) (If I am a male) your grandfather is my father's son, therefore I am your granduncle (your grandfather is my brother) - c) (but if I am a sole son/daughter) I am your grandfather/grandmother
