Resolved Question:

A sister and two brothers are named as administrators on the grant of
probate. The will states, without question, that the father's (last
deceased parent) estate, principally a property to be sold, be shared
between the sister and only one of the brothers.
there is a paragraph in the will headed Trustees Power that states :"My trustees shall have the power to apply for the beneifit of any beneficiary as my trustees shall in there absolute discretion think fit the whole or any part of the capital to which such beneficiary is or may in the future be entitled"
My question is how will the estate be divided?
