 Varaprasad said: (May 8, 2011) There is no information to tell that 'D' is either male or female.

 Vaishali Kumar said: (Dec 1, 2011) The correct answer is 'data inadequate' cause here the gender of d is not mentioned hence it could be mother or father of 'c'.

 Pratap said: (Apr 17, 2012) But gender of A is known. That is female then automatically D is male. We have analyse that. So option A is correct.

 Chandril said: (Mar 25, 2017) I think it's Data Inadequate. D could be the mother.

 Hrx said: (Apr 8, 2017) From statements, we can conclude that c is the daughter of 'A' and 'D'. A is her mother then it's obvious that other person must be his father.

 Raj said: (Oct 5, 2018) There is no gender information about D. So how D as a father?

 Shweta Raina said: (Dec 29, 2018) If A is mother of B then it is understood that D is a father. The Correct answer is D.

 Insha said: (Apr 8, 2019) We cannot assume whether d is male or female. So option is data inadequate.
