Why is it always about the inheritance?

An old man wanted to leave all of his money to one of his three sons, but he didn't know which one he should give it to. He gave each of them a few coins and told them to buy something that would be able to fill their living room. The first man bought straw, but there was not enough to fill the room. The second bought some sticks, but they still did not fill the room. The third man bought two things that filled the room, so he obtained his father's fortune. What were the two things that the third son bought?


  1. a candle to spread light..and fragrance make the whole room fragrant..ok..what's the answer ?

  2. Could he have brought sticks (because they're free) and straw?
    Kind of a lame answer, apologies

  3. He bought two things, a matchbook and a candle to fill the room with light. Fragrance sticks work, too.

  4. hydrogen and oxyogen
