As per the question what I understood is,

M is the brother of K means here M is a boy
K is the father of T means here K is also a boy
That means here both M and K are brothers.
Next, they given that T is the sister of P.
According to relations...mothers or fathers brother is uncle.
Hence, M is the uncle of P.

M + K -> M is the brother of K.
K % T -> K is the father of T.
T x P ->T is the sister of P.

That means here both M and K are brothers.

Therefore, K is the father of P and M is the paternal uncle of P.

But in given question, they just mentioned finding an uncle of "p". So it should just take it as uncle doesn't matter paternal uncle or maternal uncle.

Hence M is the uncle of P.
