A family consists of six members P, Q, R, S, T and U. There are two married couples. Q is a doctor and the father of T. U is grandfather of R and is a contractor. S is grandmother of T and is a housewife. There is one doctor, one contractor, one nurse, one housewife and two students in the family.

Who is the sister of T ?

A. R
B. U
C. T
D. Information insufficient
E. None of these
Answer: A . R


Q, the Doctor, is the father of T. S, the Housewife, is the grandmother of T and hence the mother of Q. Since there are only two married couples one being that of Q, the grandfather of R i.e., U must be married to S. Thus, R and T will be both children of Q and these must be the students. So, P, who remains, shall be the wife of Q and she alone can be the nurse. Thus, U must be the contractor.

Clearly, R and T are children of same parents. So, R will be the sister of T.
