|If H was given to be only child, could we say that answer would still be option D as M may have more than one wives ?|
|Ankur said: (Aug 15, 2013)|
|Option D will be correct cause statement II contradicts I.|
|Rajkumar Singh said: (Nov 26, 2013)|
|In statement 1, h is the only daughter of M, but none of the statement tells about the son of m. Thus both the statement are not sufficient.|
|Mohit said: (Dec 3, 2013)|
|I think in first statement talking about MANY CHILDREN but M have only one child and second statement is immaterial that's why both are insufficient. Answer will be D.|
|Jaya said: (Jun 24, 2014)|
|It is nowhere mentioned in question that M have how many sons? question is how many children so whether it is son or daughter we have to count that, so I think answer should be A.|
|Bharath said: (Oct 27, 2014)|
|X and M are husband and wife so it is saying H is daughter of X so automatically for m also so they have one child. So option is 1.
And it says M has brothers that doesn't need to be cared.
|Siva said: (Mar 16, 2015)|
|Answer is option(A) because question indicates how many children M have?
So option(A) is sufficient.
|Manikanta Gupta said: (Jul 23, 2015)|
|The answer is D because no clarity regarding sons of M is given in the data and we are supposed to count the total number of children.|
|Karthik said: (Sep 1, 2015)|
|Why not option A?|
|Rajesh said: (Jan 20, 2016)|
|A could have been answer if I statement was H is daughter of X who is her only child but the statement merely says H is the only daughter of X. Apparently it's inconclusive of number of children X or M have but at same it's conclusive of only number of daughter.|
|D'Raj said: (Feb 25, 2016)|
|If M has only female child that is only H. So what's wrong in this option. If he doesn't have any male child. So option A makes sense. And I think not option D.|
|Sid said: (Aug 10, 2016)|
|Question is only talking about the children not about the gender, don't go deeply with a question feel the essence and go simply for option A.|
|Chandu said: (Oct 4, 2016)|
|Option A is the correct answer.
Why because in question they particularly mention that x has only daughter.
That means there are no other children for x.
|Ram Kinkar said: (Oct 24, 2016)|
|It should be option A.|
|Hrishikesh Shelar said: (Nov 9, 2016)|
|Option A is the correct answer because,
The question is how many children's M have? IF that daughter is from M to his wife i.e. X. Then & then Only A is the correct answer.
|Fiza said: (Feb 22, 2017)|
|Option A should be the right answer.|
|Saro said: (Jul 19, 2017)|
|Option A is the right answer.|
|Saurabh Kumar said: (Jul 26, 2017)|
|I think Option A is the right answer.|
|Ranjith Reddy said: (Aug 25, 2017)|
|Statement 1 says that h is the only daughter here the word only means one right so according to me, A is correct.|
|Shashank said: (Sep 22, 2017)|
|It is Option A.|
|Mani said: (Mar 9, 2018)|
|We say (child=only one---boy or girl) but he asked children which is plural (more than one).|
|Mitu said: (May 20, 2019)|
|A is the correct answer.|
|Bhadru said: (Sep 21, 2019)|
|Here, Option A is the correct answer.|
|Swagata said: (Nov 17, 2019)|
|Only daughter means that one child. No?
Otherwise why ONLY is added?
|Mitesh said: (Feb 27, 2020)|
|We can not assume that M has another child. As given in statement M has only 1 daughter. So answer A is correct.|
|Damini Dhondge said: (Jan 10, 2021)|
|According to me, Only Option A is sufficient.|
|Vijay said: (Feb 17, 2021)|
|Anyone explain the right answer.|
|Vishnu said: (Mar 17, 2021)|
|A should be the answer because we have to count a number of children, not the relationship or it doesn't count or mentioned that m have relationships with anyone else rather than x so (a) is correct because it's clearly mentioned that count child by statement M has only 1 and it says answer (A) is correct.|
|Sidheshwar Kumbhar said: (Jun 30, 2021)|
|Agree, Option A is correct.|
|Dinesh said: (Aug 14, 2021)|
|Option A is the Correct answer.|
