Verbal Reasoning - Blood Relation Test - Discussion


Pointing to a woman, Abhijit said, "Her granddaughter is the only daughter of my brother." How is the woman related to Abhijit?

[A]. Sister
[B]. Grandmother
[C]. Mother-in-law
[D]. Mother

Answer: Option D


Daughter of Abhijit's brother → niece of Abhijit. Thus the granddaughter of the woman is Abhijit's niece.

Hence, the woman is the mother of Abhijit.

What is the meaning of "her granddaughter is only daughter of my brother"?

Gopi said: (Dec 28, 2013)  
Why not "mother-in-law"?

Karthivishnu said: (Jan 2, 2014)  
Why not Mother-in law. ?here both Mother and mother in law is possible. Because here they not mentioned relation bw bro and women.

I have one doubt? grand daughter means daughters daughter (we can also assume like that). In the above question ""Her granddaughter is the only daughter of my brother". Now the answer is mother-in-law. Why the answer is mentioned as grand mother. Please clarify my doubt.

Akash said: (Jul 23, 2015)  
Here in the question it is written "her granddaughter" not "maternal granddaughter". So it means the daughter of her son. If it was "her maternal granddaughter" then it would be daughter of her daughter.

Akash said: (Mar 29, 2016)  
Why not sister?

Prince Jain said: (May 4, 2016)  
The given answer is correct.

Because the question demands the relationship in between Abhijit and a woman.

Why not mother-in-law?

Sreya said: (Jul 24, 2016)  
There are two possibilities : 1. Mother, 2. Mother-in-law.

Seshu said: (Aug 2, 2016)  
Here two options are possible mother & Aunt, not mother-in-law because Abhijit's wife mother only mother-in-law all are aunt's only.

Navin said: (Oct 10, 2016)  
Please explain me clearly.

Raone said: (Jan 27, 2017)  
It means that woman grand-daughter is the only daughter of his brother which imply that this girl is speaker's Nephew which simply implies that she that is a woman is her mom.

Esther said: (Feb 25, 2017)  
Not getting this, please explain me clearly.

Basu Bagli said: (Feb 27, 2017)  
Here two options possible mother or grandmother.
Because they didn't mentioned maternal or paternal grand daughter. They mentioned grand daughter. So we can take it as;

Sons daughter (the woman is Abhijit mother here).
or daughters daughter(the woman is Abhijit mother in low in this case).
Abhijit's brother--only daughter(niece)--her grand daughter(sons daughter).
So, answer is Abhijit mother.

Basu Bagli said: (Feb 27, 2017)  
Mother and mother in law two options are possible.

Ramya said: (May 12, 2017)  
I am not getting this. Can anybody explain this answer?

Sathees said: (Jul 28, 2017)  
Why not grandson?

Please explain me clearly.

Mouni said: (May 19, 2018)  
I can't understand this question why not mother-in-law.

Can anyone explain this clearly?

Arun Kumar said: (Jul 14, 2018)  
"Her granddaughter is the only daughter of my brother".

The grandmother should be written in place of 'grand-daughter'.

Then answer should be correct.

Ashita Thakur said: (Jan 5, 2019)  
Please tell me why not mother-in-law?

Mithilesh Pandey said: (Feb 1, 2019)  
According to my point of view, this is not a suitable answer because women is the grand daughter of Abhijit niece.

Ammu said: (Aug 22, 2019)  
The answer will be mother-in-law.

Swati said: (Nov 7, 2019)  
What is the difference between maternal granddaughter and granddaughter? Please clear my doubt.

Swati said: (Nov 7, 2019)  
And one more thing according to me the answer should be mother -in- law then why mother.

V Yogeswari said: (Dec 4, 2019)  
The question is: relation of the WOMAN IN PHOTOGRAPH with Abhijit.

The woman's son' daughter is her granddaughter. It is the son's because Abhijith said it was his brother. So, the picture is clear.

The flowchart is: the woman > son and Abhijith > granddaughter

So,what is the relation between the woman and Abhijith?

Yes. The WOMAN is the mother of Abhijith.

Ameena Musthafa said: (May 11, 2020)  
I didn't understand it. Please explain in detail.

Joydeep Mondal said: (Jun 4, 2020)  
Why not grandmother?

Sudeep said: (Aug 12, 2020)  
Clearly, the answer is Mother Let me explain.

Only Daughter of my brother - My Nephew.

Women's Granddaughter is the My(Abhijit s) Nephew.


1st gen: Women
2nd gen: Abhijit
3rd gen: Nephew.

Clearly, the women is the Mother to Abhijit.

Maryada said: (Sep 28, 2020)  
How it is mother-in-law?

Please clarify my doubt.

Adarsh said: (Nov 21, 2020)  
Why not a mother-in-law? Explain please.

Ayaan said: (Jun 12, 2021)  

In my opinion, Mother-in-law isn't suitable because she will be the mother of Abhijit's brother's wife. Therefore that woman is the mother-in-law of Abhijit's brother NOT the mother-in-law of Abhijit.

Hope this helps! Thank You.

Nanda Kumar said: (Jul 12, 2021)  
Yes, right. Thanks @Ayaan.
