Explanation:

1). By decoding given information with symbols of family diagram, we get

Now , by applying above decoding method, we can check all the options for the required relationship.
(a) (M + L ร N) = Rejected

So, N is the daughter of M.
(b) (M / L + N) = Rejected

(c) (L ร N / M) = Rejected

(d) (N ร L / M) = Selected

Now, it is clear that N is the aunt of M.

Directions (Q. Nos 2-3) By decoding given information with symbols of family diagram, we get

2). By applying above decoding method for (P ร R / Q), we draw the following family diagram

Clearly, P is the uncle of Q.

3).  By applying above decoding method for (P = R / Q), we draw the following family diagram

Clearly, P is the aunt of Q.

Directions (Q. Nos 4-5) By decoding given information with symbols of family diagram, we get

4). From the given information, following family diagram can be drawn

So, it clear that A is the aunt of B.

5). From the given information, following family diagram can be drawn

Now, it is clear that A is the mother of B.

Directions (Q. Nos 6-8) By decoding given information with symbols of family diagram, we get

6). By applying above method for (B + D ร M / N), we draw the following family diagram

Hence, it is clear that M is the grandson of B.

7). By applying above decoding method, we can check all the options for the required relationship.
(a) (M / T โ R ร F) = Rejected

(b) (J + R โ T ร F) = Rejected

(c) (J / M โ N ร F) = Rejected

So, none of the options is correct to answer the question.

8). By applying above decoding method, we can check all the options for the required relationship
(a) (M / K ร T – R) = Rejected

Here, gender of R is not known. So, R is either niece or nephew of M.
(b) (M โ J + R – N) = selected

As, we have already obtained the answer, so there is no need to check other options.

Directions (Q. Nos 9-10) By decoding given information with symbols of family diagram, we get

9). By applying above decoding method, we can check all the options for the required relationship
(a) (H + J + T)

Hence, there is no need to check other options, as we have already obtained the answer.

10). By applying above decoding method, we can check all the options for the required relationship
(a) (M / K – T) = Rejected

(b) (M ร K – T) = selected

Hence, there is no need to check other options.
