time for some philosophy son!

Mr. Agassi, his sister, his son, and his daughter are fond of tennis and often play together. The following statements are true of their foursome: 1. The best player's twin and the worst player are of the opposite sex. 2. The best player and the worst player are the same age. Which of the foursome is the best player?
options are
sister, son, daugher, or mr agassi

Stupidity. Thinking that logical reasoning is the only way to find the truth. Philosophy is not only logic, it is also thinking. I must remind you that Philosophy comes from philos : friend and sophia : wisdom.
Anyway, it could be Mr.Agassi and his sister if they have the same age or his son and daugter if they're the same age.

The daughter is the best, sister is worst.

It could just as easily be
best: sister
worst: daughter

right?

Logical reasoning would tell you that Mr. Agassi, a man recognized as the best tennis player in the world during his active years, is the best of the four.

Nope.
>1. The best player's twin and the worst player are of the opposite sex.

If sister is best; she and Agassi is the same age. Sister and daughter is also same age from statement 2. Agassi can't be same age as his daughter.

I'm using logical reasoning to debunk OP's entire statement. None of what he said makes any sense whatsoever because Agassi IS objectively the best of the four.

mr. agassi and his sister. they are fraternal twins (same age), and the opposite sex

Could be a step daughter. Maybe Agassi's wife is really old and really rich and had a daughter from a previous marriage. The OP didn't specify whether or not the son or daughter are his biological children.

You must have fucked something up in describing this question, because if the best player's twin is the opposite sex of the worst player, and the group is broken up into two boy-girl generations, then the best and worst players have to be of the same gender, which means they can't be the same age. The two clues you give about the best and worst players are incompatible with each other. Also this is the most embarassing misinterpretation of what constitutes philosophy I have ever seen.

This. It reminds me of a poorly written mathematical word problem found in some shitty grade school text book.

While technically possible that would make this question even more retarded than it already is. It's not a function of logic to make really tenuous assumptions that can't technically be disproven in order to shoe horn an answer into an essentially broken question.

An easy walkthrough.

>1. The best player's twin and the worst player are of the opposite sex.
If we asume that sister and Agassi are twins, and son and daughter is twin, this places best and worst player in different generations.

>2. The best player and the worst player are the same age
Tells us that Agassi can't be best or worst, he'd have to be same age as his kids. Sister must be same age as kids.
Statements 1 also gives that best and worst player are same genders.
Since sister is younger than Agassi, she can't have a twin, and therefore not be best.

Daughter is the best player.
