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

From I, we conclude that Y is the child of D who is wife of X i.e. X is Y's father.

From II, X is married to Y's father. This implies that X is Y's mother.

Option D is correct because they haven't mentioned Y's gender.

So, Y can be either son or daughter.

Both defines a different relationship. Can't conclude it!

Is it sufficient to only find out that Y is the child of X rather than Y being son or daughter of X?

Chandra sekar said:   10 years ago
x is father of y means what about D?

Janardhan said:   1 decade ago
If they are considered non relational then how Y and Z are born?

Sunny said:   1 decade ago
Yes, both are true, either 1 or 2 can be used, (consider both statements as separate and non relational statements) then Option C is correct.

Anuradha chauhan said:   1 decade ago
Option c is correct because statement 1 is alone sufficient to specify relation and 2 statement is also sufficient alone. No matter they are indicating the different relations. or.

BOTH STATEMENTS ARE SUFFICIENT INDEPENDENTLY TO GIVE ANSWER TO WHAT IS ASKED.

Anuradha chauhan said:   1 decade ago
I statement shows that x is male person and 2 statement indicates that x is R'S SISTER means female how it can be possible.

The correct answer is not expected only the data are sufficient or not to arrive at the answer is required. Hence doesn't matter the relation is different.

From 1st statement only we find that X is father of y but as per 2nd statement indicates X as mother of Y. This is a contradiction. How to analyze this anomaly?
