Its clearly given in option A, C & I are sisters, so I is a girl. Then how come option A is incorrect? Please explain.

Here the answer is D because I is girl and in option A the gender of I is not known.

D is more appropriate answer bcz in option A v r nt given the sex of I (it could b a boy or a girl i.e I could b nephew of J too) so D is more appropriate.

Hi guess even the option-A is correct.lets see the explanation by me.

J - N % C x I
1)j-N means: J is brother of N
2)N%C means: N is the father of C
3)C*I means: C is the sister of I

i.e
`   J--brother-----N                  |                  |father                  |                  C------sister---I`

So it's clearly saying that N is father for both C and I.
Hence I becomes the niece for J.

Hey actually I is a girl,

N is the Brother of J.

Since I is the daughter of N,

I is the niece for J.

NIECE means the daughter of our brother/sister.
