1) If expression ‘I + T % J × L ÷ K’ is definitely true then which among the following option is true?

a) L is daughter of T

c) L % R % D + T ÷ M

d) D + L \$ R + M x T

e) L \$ D ÷ R % M ÷ T

Answer – b) L + R \$ D + M x T

Solution – We can solve this with the family tree also but usually, we prefer student to check options in these type of question.

See, we have to find M is the daughter of D. So it is clear that M is female.

Try to remove out the options in which gender of M is not female or not clearly mentioned.

With this, we will remove 1, 3 and 5 option.

Now check the remaining two options – we will get that Option 2 is the right option. As in Option 4, there is +2 generation gap and there is +1 generation gap in the relation of daughter of mother/father.

1. M is the brother of N who is not female.
