Usually fathers brother is considered as father. Then how can we say that I is the niece of K.

Agreed with @Deepika.

Can anyone explain it?

Usually in our culture only we consider our father's brother as a father. But in foreign countries, they consider their father's brother and sister as uncle and aunt.

I think both A and B are satisfying the question.
