Sorry about my ans before . I 've might have misunderstood the question that time .
Now it is clear to me . And if I'm not wrong this time , the ages are 1 , 1 and 1998 or 3 , 3 and 222 as the father's age won't go under Rupam's age . You can understand it if you will start dividing 1998 by all the square numbers from 1 . Also , I don't think that anyone's age will be 222 or 1998 these days . Maybe the question is wrong or it is just to confuse us . Also , please tell me how is it 2*2*3=1998 ?
