  • That man is the subject's son. That man's (the son's) father (the subject) is my (the subject's) father's (subject's father or the son's grandpa) son.

    • I can see how people think the man is talking about himself, but that would mean he refers to himself as "that man" which doesn't make much sense and makes the riddle way too simple. "That man" obviously means a separate person from the narrator.

  • That man would have to be the narrator's son.

    For those who want it broken down.
    N is narrator
    L is narrator's father
    X is "that man"
    Y is that man's father

    N has no siblings so L's only child is N.
    X's father (Y) is L's son.
    As L only has one child (N), then for Y to be the son of L, Y must be the same person as N.
    As the narrator then asks who is that man, that man is X and X is the son of Y and Y is another name for narrator himself so he's referring to his son.

  • It's the the guy who's saying the riddle. The guy without a broter or sister. The son of the father.

  • No siblings, so that man's father is the grandfather. This doesn't make sense. Man's father is my father's son? So the line would go, grandfather, son and grandson.
