Question: How is T related to K?

Statements:

  1. R's sister J has married Ts brother L, who is the only son of his parents.
  2. K is the only daughter of L and J.

I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
Either I or II is sufficient
Neither I nor II is sufficient
Both I and II are sufficient
Answer: Option
Explanation:

From I, we know that L is T's brother and J's husband. Since L is the only son of his parents, T is L's sister.

From II, we know that K is L's daughter.

Thus, from I and II, we conclude that T is the sister of K's father i.e. T is K's aunt.

In the question, they mentioned L is the only son.

So, obviously, T will become L's sister.

D is the right answer.

It was clearly mentioned that L is the only son, hence T must be a girl that is his sister.

How to know the gender of T. Guy or girl. Uncle or aunt?
