Let X be the the only daughter.

Case1: The only daughter of the brother of my wife means X is the daughter in law of Anupam bcz X is daughter of the brother of Anupams wife.

Case2: X is sister-in-law of the brother of your sister means Lady's sisters brother i.e Lady's brother.

So X is sister-in-law to that lady.

Hence X is sister to the lady's husband and she is the daughter in law of Anupam.

Then the husband of the lady related to Anupam is Son-in-law because X and lady's husband relation is brother and sister.

Anupam is father-in-law of niece of his brother. Lady is the sister in law of broher in law of mother of his wife.

Got it!

Wife's brother's daughter is niece but you told that daughter in law.

Could not understand it still.

Just eliminate the options. First sister in law impels wife's sister.

(Anuppam*wife-brother) (lady-sister-(bro)(bro).

| | |.

(daughter).

Daughter married to 2 bro on right side.

Now eliminate options. Son in law is better than any those, same level can't be uncle.

Let X be the only daughter.

(1) ==> The only daughter (X) of the brother of my wife means is the daughter in law of Anupam.

(2) ==> X is the sister-in-law of the brother of your sister means Lady's sister's brother i.e. also Lady's brother.

So X is sister-in-law to that lady.

X will become sister to the lady's husband = lady's husband will become a brother to X.

Now,

Since X is the Daughter-in-law to Anupam.

X's brother, ie lady's husband will be Son-in-law to Anupam.

Can you please tell me the relation between Anupam and the lady who was sitting in a car?

Shri Rajasekar said: (Jan 30, 2017)  
The only daughter of the (brother of my wife) ->
The only daughter of my brother in law = My niece is the sister in law of the (brother of your sister )

-> (brother of your sister )= your brother

Niece is the sister in law of your brother = Neice is your sister in law.

So, the niece is your Husband's sister.

So, the niece and your husband are brothers and sisters.


Niece is also called as the daughter in law.

So your Husband is the SON IN LAW of Anupam.

Anupam's wife's niece is Anupam's daughter-in-law; This niece is the wife of the brother of the lady in the car; so, this lady's brother's the son-in-law of Anupam. So, The husband of the lady in the car also, is the son-in-law of Anupam.

Pavithra said: (Feb 1, 2017)  
Is niece and daughter in law are the same thing? Also, does the relation of the brothers-in-law son & daughter is same to only brother's son & the daughter?

Please describe it.

How can niece be a daughter- in - law? Explain in detail.

Prasann Goud said: (May 15, 2018)  
@Pavithra:.

No. Brother son/ daughter will be son and daughter to us. But in some countries different. And Brother-in-law's son/daughter will be called as son-in-law/daughter-in-law.

Palak said: (Jun 7, 2018)  
Niece is sister in law of lady's brother=niece is lady's sister in law. But it doesnt mean that lady's sister in law is her husbands sister. In this question lady's sister in law is her brother's wife.
