Two Fathers & Two sons means GRANDFATHER, FATHER & SON.
Lets take Grandfather as G and Father as F and Son as S.
G = Father of F
F = Father of S
So two fathers G & F => Grandfather & Father are fathers.
F = Son of G
S = Son of F
So two sons F & S => Father & Son are sons.
Therefore old lady can divide and give \$33,333 equally to 3 of them(Grandfather, Father & Son) as \$11,111 each.
