14.

If A + B means A is the sister of B; A x B means A is the wife of B, A % B means A is the father of B and A - B means A is the brother of B. Which of the following means T is the daughter of P?

 [A]. P x Q % R + S - T [B]. P x Q % R - T + S [C]. P x Q % R + T - S [D]. P x Q % R + S + T

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

P x Q → P is the wife of Q

Q % R → Q is the father of R

R - T → R is the brother of T

T + S → T is the sister of S.

Therefore, T is the daughter of P.

 Dheeraj said: (Mar 22, 2011) P is the mother; Q is the father; R,S and T are there children;

 Shaif said: (Sep 11, 2011) Just one clue. Given, t is female. And only 2nd option clarifies so. No need to do other calculation.

 Vinod Thadani said: (Feb 27, 2014) 4th option is also the answer if we make R S T they all are sister.

 Sai Harshitha said: (Jul 12, 2014) I think @Vinod is right, even 4th option gives the right answer.

 Santhosh said: (Aug 13, 2014) @Ninod and @Sai. 4th option not possible because. (s+T) we don't whether T is male/Female. But in 2nd option i.e., option B we know (T+S) T is Female. Hope you understand. Have a nice day!

 Gomsy said: (Jul 1, 2015) Even option 1 gives the right answer guys.

 Prathiba said: (Sep 9, 2015) No we can't determine the sex of T in Option A & D. So option B only right.

 Ayesha said: (Nov 27, 2015) Option D correctly specifies that T is sister of S, gender of R is of no importance, hence option D is also correct.

 Sai Sudeepth said: (Jan 7, 2016) Option 1 gives the right answer. S is the brother of T, and are is the sister of S. So R, S, T might be the siblings. So T can be the daughter of P.

 Keerthi.. said: (Feb 6, 2016) Can any one please help me? I'm unable to solve these problems. In the question they given A's & B's. And in the answers they are determining p, q, r, s. How these problems are solved?

 Divya said: (Apr 6, 2016) Hi, @Keerthi. A and B are just samples. You need to substitute it on P, Q, R, S.

 Mahesh Singh Tanwar said: (Jun 12, 2016) I think option A is also correct one.

 Ashok said: (Jun 13, 2016) Why not 1st and 4th options? They are also correct because question itself says T is the daughter.

 Rohit Bhatia said: (Feb 23, 2018) Can anyone explain this question to me? I am not getting it.

 Abhilash said: (May 6, 2018) I think Option (C) is also correct.

 Sohel Shah said: (Sep 21, 2019) I am not getting it, Can you please explain this?

 Ramanjeet said: (Nov 22, 2019) Any short trick to solve these kind of questions.

 Gani said: (Feb 12, 2020) In my opinion, option 1 also right.

 Vanshika said: (Jun 6, 2020) The correct answer is D as p is wife of q. r is a child of q and p. t and s are siblings of s. Therefore t is the son of p.

 Chandru said: (Oct 5, 2020) Hi, @Vanshika this question is about to find the option which is proving T is the daughter of P not a son of P. I hope you got clarity now.

 Sree said: (Jun 4, 2021) Why not option A? P*Q - P is the wife of Q Q%R - Q is the father of R R + S - R is the Sister of S S - T - > S is the brother of T Here it's not said that T is the only daughter of P. And as per given " A- B = A is the brother of B " so here also the gender of B is not mentioned.

 Sree said: (Jun 4, 2021) Why not option A ? P*Q - P is the wife of Q Q%R - Q is the father of R R + S - R is the Sister of S S - T - > S is the brother of T Here it's not said that T is the only daughter of P. And as per given " A- B = A is the brother of B ", so here also the gender of B is not mentioned.

 Ayaan said: (Jun 11, 2021) @Sree. This is because the gender of t is not mentioned because the statement ends with S being the brother of T, hope you understand.

 Ayaan said: (Jun 11, 2021) In option A, the gender of T is still not known but in option B, we clearly know that T is a female, So, If we were to take option A as the answer then there would still remain a doubt on the gender of T, hence we conclude option B as our answer. Hope this helps, thank you!
