Here J may be other women rather den P's mother no . So if u think like this option B is wrong and wen v combine both statements we can conclude that P & T are daughters and M is the son of P's mother & J' s husband. in this case, v can say J is P's mother. So according to me option E must be right.

First of all T and P are daughters & M is son of (someone ) not mentioned in statement 1.

Statement 2 : follows p who is daughter of her mother and mother is married to j's husband. So, in this sense j is wife of his husband and mother of p(who is her daughter).

Statement-1: Indicates that M is brother of P i.e M is male and T is sister of p which means T is female. And sex of p is not mentioned.

Statement-2: It means p's mother is married to j's (other) husband. In this manner j is mother of p.

J's husband (who have two daughters & one son) Here p is the one of the child (either boy or girl),

Assume P's mother name was J. So J is the mother of p.

What is J's husband?

It must be J's father. Am I right?
