A: 

  1. His father receives 1/6, the wife will receive 1/8 and the remainder goes to the two sons equally.
  2. Both the parents get 1/6 each, the husband will receive ¼ and the remainder goes to both the sons equally.
  3. The wife receives 1/8, the daughter receives ½ and the father receives the remainder.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
