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?

If they are considered non relational then how Y and Z are born?

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.

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.
