Directions (1-5): Study the information carefully and answer the questions given below:

There are five married couples in a family who have only one child. P, Q, R, S, and T are child and they are of different ages (in years) i.e. 12, 15, 21, 18, and 9 (not necessarily in same order).

I is a female member of the family and is not married to B and J. C is married to F, whose child is 18 yrs old. A’s child is 15 yrs old. G is a father of P. R’s and Q’s age is an odd number. B and J are male members. I’s child is not the oldest. P is not child of H. Q is not a child of B. D is a female member. H is not married to J. F is not mother of S. T is a child of E, who is a male member. R is younger than T but older than Q.

Q1. What is the age of the child of B?
(a) 9 years
(b) 18 years
(c) 12 years
(d) 15 years
(e) None of these

Q2. Who among the following is child of H?
(a) P
(b) R
(c) T
(d) S
(e)None of these

Q3. Who among the following is a child of D and what is the age of D’s child?

(b) Q, 12yrs
(c) Q, 9yrs
(d) S, 9yrs
(e) None of these

(b) B-A-R-15
(c) J-D-Q-18
(d) E-F-T-21
(e) None of these

Q5. Who among the following is wife of E?
(a) H
(b) A
(c) T’s mother
(d) Q’s mother
(e) Both (a) and (c)

Solutions (1-5):

(i) By using the condition, I is a female member of the family and is not married to B and J.

B and J are male members. C is married to F, whose child is 18 yrs old. T is a child of E, who is a male member, G is a father of P. so two cases will be there as shown below:

(ii) Q is not a child of B and Q’s age is an odd number, so Q is a child of J. R’s and Q’s age is an odd number, so they can be 9 or 21 or 15yrs old. R is child of B and S is child of C, this is the only possibility. R is younger than T but older than Q, hence R’s age is 15, Q is 9 yrs old and T’s age is 21 . But in case 2, T is the child of I, who is not the oldest, hence case 2 will be eliminated. A’s child is 15 yrs old, so A is a wife of B. F is not mother of S, so F is father of S. I’s child is not the oldest, so I’s child is 12yrs old. H is not married to J, so H is married to E and D is a female member, so D is a wife of J and we will get the final solution.
