Verbal Reasoning - Blood Relation Test - Discussion


Introducing Sonia, Aamir says, "She is the wife of only nephew of only brother of my mother." How Sonia is related to Aamir?

[A]. Wife
[B]. Sister
[C]. Sister-in-law
[D]. Data is inadequate

Answer: Option A


Brother of mother means maternal uncle. Hence only nephew of Aamir's maternal uncle means Aamir himself. Therefore Sonia is the wife of Aamir.

Its difficult to understand.

Sivaranjani said: (Jun 19, 2011)  
Very confusing.

Yash said: (Aug 22, 2011)  
Salman and Aamir both are men. How can he be his wife?

Suganya said: (Oct 18, 2011)  
Salman itself male name. Confusing a lot.

Nehal said: (Feb 14, 2013)  
"She is the wife of only nephew of only brother of my mother."
Here "SHE" is some third person(Lady) who is being introduced to Salman by Aamir.

Hey don't get confused.

Take last sentence "only brother of my mother" (ie) its aamir's uncle.

And "only nephew of only brother" (ie) its aamir.

"She is the wife of only nephew" (ie) its clear she is wife of aamir.

So answer (A) wife.

I hope you get the concept.

A is the uncle of B. Who is the daughter of C.

Wife--------(Only Nephew)Amir.

Why not answer is sister in law very confused.

Vikarll said: (Sep 20, 2015)  
The answer should be D.

What if this "uncle" (only brother) has another sister other than Amir's mother? (She will be the maternal Aunt of Amir). If this Aunt has a son (who will be another nephew of this same uncle), Sonia could be his wife too.

In which case, she is Amir's cousin's wife but not Amir's wife!

How we can determine the gender of Aamir may be it is niece?

Satish Patel said: (Aug 1, 2016)  
My answer for this question is option D.

Swa said: (Nov 1, 2016)  
I think D is the correct answer.

Anugrah said: (Aug 22, 2017)  
Answer should be D because gender of Amir is not given as per question.

Rajeev Kumar said: (Jan 18, 2018)  
A is the right answer.

Yasmeen said: (Apr 30, 2018)  
Thank you @Mani.

Dhananjay Ray said: (Feb 13, 2019)  
Agree @Vikarl.

Also, Aamir's gender is unknown. A name can't decide a gender.

Snehasri Mitra said: (Mar 11, 2019)  
Here it is mentioned that Sonia is the wife of Amit's mother's brother son. So, how brother and sister can be husband and wife?

Pakhi said: (May 9, 2019)  
It is written that Sonia is the wife of the only nephew of Aamir's maternal uncle (mother's brother).

The only nephew of uncle is Aamir himself.

So, Sonia is the wife of Aamir.

It look like a difficult question but it's not this question is going to test our mind. Enjoy it guys.

Chetan Somkuwar said: (Jun 8, 2020)  
Hello there how can you define the gender on Aamir there is no such clue?

Aamir can be the niece and some other person can be the only nephew and hence Sonia can be sister in law as well.
