Question: How is T related to K?

Statements:

  1. K has two sons; one of the sons is A.
  2. The mother of T has only two sons - Aand B.

[A]. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
[B]. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
[C]. Either I or II is sufficient
[D]. Neither I nor II is sufficient
[E]. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer: Option E

Explanation:

From II, we know that T's mother has only two sons, A and B. This implies that T is the sister of both A and B. But, from I, A is also K's son. So, T is the daughter of K.

T is daughter of K is right. But can't say K is father or mother of T.

The relationship is asked between T and K. T is the daughter of K.

It didn't ask what K is to T. That's why it's E.
