a) Q - N + M x P

b) P + S x N - Q

c) P - M + N x Q

d) Q - S % P.

It is easy, you don't need to solve it fully. Lets check...

We have to find that P is uncle i, e P is male.

a) Q - N + M x P

M x P means

M is sister of P but is P male or female, we don't know...

So part (a) is rejected.

b) P + S x N - Q

P + S means P is mother of S.

So P is female..

Again (b) rejected because P must be male.

d) Q - S % P

S % P

Means; S is a father of P but is P male or female, we don't know...

So part (d) is again rejected.

c) P - M + N x Q

P - M means P is the brother of M.

So P is male, so it is sufficient to prove the answer.

Lets complete it;

P - M + N x Q

P - M means P is the brother of M.

M + N means M is the mother of N.

N x Q means N is the sister of Q.

Conclusion: P is the brother of M, and M is the mother of Q.

So, P is the Uncle of Q.

b) P + S x N - Q

c) P - M + N x Q

d) Q - S % P.
