There is no information to tell that 'D' is either male or female.

The correct answer is 'data inadequate' cause here the gender of d is not mentioned hence it could be mother or father of 'c'.

Pratap said: (Apr 17, 2012)  
But gender of A is known. That is female then automatically D is male. We have analyse that. So option A is correct.

I think it's Data Inadequate.

D could be the mother.

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.

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

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

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