I know the answer of Question 2. The professor is a female professor. Her father's son, or her brother is talking to her son's father, or, her husband. Therefore, the professor is not in the conversation.

IGNORE THE LAST ENTRY.

In the first Q the ages could be 4,3,3 too.
4*3*3=36.
Their sum gives 10.

Or it could be 9,2,2.
Their sum=13.

Or it could be 6,3,2.
Their sum=11.

[The prof. never said that his 2nd and 3rd son are of the same ages.
So they might be of different ages too.]

The pencils are round if the transverse cross section is considered.
[At least I think so].
Some pencils look like a cylinder.
(circular body if cross section is considered.)
[except well known brands like apsara, nataraj, etc.....]

Hope Jai Hind understands what I mean to say!!!!!!

1)The house no. was 13.
He was confused between the 6,6,1 and 9,2,2.
But when he heard "eldest son",he knew it had to be 9,2,2.
