 Raju said: (Mar 5, 2017) I am struggling with this question. I think option C can also be another possible. Can anybody explain this?

 Sadoww said: (May 1, 2018) No, the gender of M cannot be determined as per the given option.

 Capt Jack said: (Aug 23, 2018) No, it is wrong because we cannot be determined the gender of M.

 Capt Jack said: (Aug 23, 2018) No, it is wrong because we cannot be determined the gender of M.

 Naga said: (May 8, 2019) Gender of m is not specified here. How could it be the correct answer?

 Nikhil Sharma said: (Jun 1, 2019) No, it is wrong because we cannot be determined the gender of M.

 Rajesh Peyala said: (Dec 11, 2019) We can use short cut method as They've given that M is wife so obviously Q is Male (husband) and use short cut to solve this problem by taking Q as Male nd M is female ie. M is wife so generation gap of given equation should be "0". If we do this, only C & D will have 0 gen gap so ans must be either C or D. After this just take 10 sec to calculate relation between M & Q from C & D options.
