**Solutions:
**

**1) Answer (A)**

J Ã· P % H ? T % L

=> T is the mother of L and J is the brother of H

Now, for J to be brother of T, H must be either sister or brother of T.

=> ‘x’ is the correct symbol here.

**2) Answer (D)**

In option B, D + M is given, wich implies that D is the father of M.

Now, if M is a girl, then it can be established that M is the daughter of M.

M x T => M is a sister of T => M is a girl

Hence option B is correct.

**3) Answer (B)
**

I + T % J Ã— L Ã· K

L Ã· K => L is the son of K

J Ã— L Ã· K => J is the daughter of K

T % J Ã— L Ã· K => T is the wife of K

I + T % J Ã— L Ã· K => I is the father-in-law of K

Hence B is the correct answer

**4) Answer (D)**

Given that Y is not a son of X.

In option A and B, Y Ã· X is given, which is wrong. Hence A and B are eliminated.

In option C, X + L x T x Y is given => X is father of Y, which is wrong. Hence C is eliminated.

Similarly E can also be eliminated.

Hence, D is the answer

**5) Answer (D)**

T Ã— P ? Q

Here, T is the sister of P. So for T to be sister-in-law of Q, P must be Q’s wife. Hence the correct symbol is ‘$’.
