Verbal Reasoning - Blood Relation Test - Discussion


If A + B means A is the sister of B; A x B means A is the wife of B, A % B means A is the father of B and A - B means A is the brother of B. Which of the following means T is the daughter of P?

[A]. P x Q % R + S - T
[B]. P x Q % R - T + S
[C]. P x Q % R + T - S
[D]. P x Q % R + S + T

Answer: Option B


P x Q → P is the wife of Q

Q % R → Q is the father of R

R - T → R is the brother of T

T + S → T is the sister of S.

Therefore, T is the daughter of P.

Just one clue.

Given, t is female.

And only 2nd option clarifies so.

No need to do other calculation.

4th option is also the answer if we make R S T they all are sister.

Sai Harshitha said: (Jul 12, 2014)  
I think @Vinod is right, even 4th option gives the right answer.

Santhosh said: (Aug 13, 2014)  
@Ninod and @Sai.

4th option not possible because.

(s+T) we don't whether T is male/Female.

But in 2nd option i.e., option B we know (T+S) T is Female.

Hope you understand.

Have a nice day!

Even option 1 gives the right answer guys.

Prathiba said: (Sep 9, 2015)  
No we can't determine the sex of T in Option A & D. So option B only right.

Ayesha said: (Nov 27, 2015)  
Option D correctly specifies that T is sister of S, gender of R is of no importance, hence option D is also correct.

Sai Sudeepth said: (Jan 7, 2016)  
Option 1 gives the right answer. S is the brother of T, and are is the sister of S. So R, S, T might be the siblings. So T can be the daughter of P.

Can any one please help me? I'm unable to solve these problems. In the question they given A's & B's. And in the answers they are determining p, q, r, s. How these problems are solved?

Hi, @Keerthi.

A and B are just samples. You need to substitute it on P, Q, R, S.

Mahesh Singh Tanwar said: (Jun 12, 2016)  
I think option A is also correct one.

Ashok said: (Jun 13, 2016)  
Why not 1st and 4th options?

They are also correct because question itself says T is the daughter.

Rohit Bhatia said: (Feb 23, 2018)  
Can anyone explain this question to me? I am not getting it.

Abhilash said: (May 6, 2018)  
I think Option (C) is also correct.

Sohel Shah said: (Sep 21, 2019)  
I am not getting it, Can you please explain this?

Ramanjeet said: (Nov 22, 2019)  
Any short trick to solve these kind of questions.

Gani said: (Feb 12, 2020)  
In my opinion, option 1 also right.

Vanshika said: (Jun 6, 2020)  
The correct answer is D as p is wife of q.
r is a child of q and p.
t and s are siblings of s.
Therefore t is the son of p.
