The answer is mother-in-law because P is the mother of Q and Q is the father of R and R is the brother of T and T is K's son. It means R and T are siblings. So their father is Q. So mother will be K. So the answer mother-in-law.

K will be female. T is the daughter of K. T is the sibling of R. R is the son of Q who is a male. Hence, R and T are children of Q and K.

But isn't the gender of K as female obvious because T is the son of K who is also the son of Q who is a male.

Yes gender of K is not mentioned.

T is daughter of K.

Hence Q is either husband of K, or K itself.

So, P could be either mother-in-low of K, or mother.

Hence Q is either husband of K, or K itself.

So, P could be either mother-in-low of K, or mother.
