Friday Brain Teasers...

1) Father
A young girl told her grandfather to stop teasing her and 'grow up'. If her grandfather was as old as her father he would be more sensible. How can this be?

2) Tennis
Two men were playing tennis. They played five sets but each won three sets. How can this be?

3) Dealing cards
Imagine you are dealing all the cards of the pack equally, one by one, to a group of players. About halfway through your deal, you are interrupted and distracted. You lose your place and don't know where to deal the next card. In what simple way can you complete the deal, giving each player the card they would have received without counting the cards you've already dealt to any hand and without counting the cards you have left to deal?
