The gender of D is not specified, then how to predict this?

Sona said:   4 years ago
If A is mother of B then D will be father of B and C.

Answer is A.

Here is a detailed explanation:
A#B means a is the mother of B.
B$C means B is the brother of C which also means A is the mother of C as well.
C*D means C is the daughter of D, and since we have already established that A is the mother, D is logically the father.

We cannot assume whether d is male or female. So option is data inadequate.

If A is mother of B then it is understood that D is a father. The Correct answer is D.

There is no gender information about D. So how D as a father?

HRX said:   7 years ago
From statements, we can conclude that c is the daughter of 'A' and 'D'.

A is her mother then it's obvious that other person must be his father.

I think it's Data Inadequate.

D could be the mother.

But gender of A is known. That is female then automatically D is male. We have analyse that. So option A is correct.
