"Mother of my mother"- Woman's grandmother.

"Only son of woman's grandmother"- Woman's father.

Therefore the man is woman's father. Hence the woman is the "daughter of the man".

Hence, the man is the woman's maternal uncle and the woman will be his niece.

In question, it's mentioned the only son, so how there can be a woman also? Please explain.

Sujith said: (Aug 19, 2021)  
Hey @Ustaad.

Read this question in reverse format.

Here the question is women said, so (my) is a female.

My mother means that women's mother.

And the mother of my mother means that women's grandmother
Only son of the mother of my mother means that grandmother has two children one that women's and another one is that son.
Here the women and that son are brothers and sisters.
So we call sisters daughter as niece.

Hope you understand , thankyou
