Verbal Reasoning - Blood Relation Test - Discussion

41. 

If M x N means M is the daughter of N; M + N means M is the father of N; M % N means M is the mother of N and M - N means M is the brother of N then P % Q + R - T x K indicates which relation of P to K?

[A]. Daughter-in-law
[B]. Sister-in-law
[C]. Aunt
[D]. None of these

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

P % Q → P is the mother of Q

Q + R → Q is the father of R

R - T → R is the brother of T

Hence, → Q is the father of T

T x K → T is the daughter of K

Hence, → Q is the husband of K.

Therefore, P is the mother-in-law of K.

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.

Yes gender of K is not mentioned.

Niharika said: (Feb 23, 2017)  
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.

Jene said: (Feb 23, 2017)  
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.

The Answer should be (A) because the question asked relation of P to K. Not K to P

Chowdary said: (Sep 15, 2018)  
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.
