There are eight members P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, and W in a family. These eight persons belongs to three different generation, such that there are three married couples, while two members are unmarried. Each couple has at least a child.

Further it is known that each of these eight persons works with a different company among A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H in any order. V and R are the only siblings in the family and U, W, R and S are of the same gender. W and V do not form a married couple. The person who works with A is the mother of the person who works with F, who, in turn is female. V does not work with E and his daughter is S. R works with B. The person who works with G and the one who works with E belong to the same generation. The person who works with G is female , whereas the person who is working with E is a male. The persons who works with C is the maternal grandfather of Q, who in turn works with D. T works with H.

1.   Which company does W work with?

1. H
2. G
3. F
4. A

2.   Who among the following is the spouse of the person working with E?

1. R
2. S
3. W
4. The person works with E is unmarried.

3.   Which of the following pairs of persons form a married couple?

1. V and U
2. S and T
3. R and T
4. More than one of the above

4.   Which of the following statements is/are definitely true?

1. U works with A.
2. W is the daughter of P.
3. Q is a male
4. More than one of the above

We have 3 couples and 3 generation from 8 people and each couple has a child. So, there are two possibilities:

1. Two couple in generation 2, 1 in generation 1
2. Two couple in generation 1, 1 in generation 2
Further we know that U, W, R and S are of same gender and S being a daughter means all of them are women.
Q is in 3rd generation and to form 3 couples, we need 3 men. This makes P, T and V men.

 P Q R S T U V W D B H M F F M F M F 3 2 3 2 2 1

V and R are siblings, S is daughter of V, and V and W are not couple. So, that makes U-V a couple.

Now, only female left for generation 1 is W and person working for C being a grand father makes P work for C.

 P Q R S T U V W C D B H E G M F F M F M F 1 3 2 3 2 2 2 1

But now we are stuck. We can't have "The person who works with A is the mother of the person who works with F". So, first assumption is wrong.

## Two couple in generation 1, 1 in generation 2

 P Q R S T U V W D B H M F F M F M F 3 1 2 1 1

The person who works with A is the mother of the person who works with F, who, in turn, is female. This makes person working with F in 2nd generation and person working with A in first generation. Since R is working with B this means U is working with A and hence S is working with F. That leaves V as the grand father and he is working with C. Since the person working with E and G belong to same generation they must be in 2nd generation leaving T is first generation and making a couple with R. Further the person working with G is female means W works with G and P works with E.

 P Q R S T U V W E D B F H A C G M F F M F M F 2 3 1 2 1 1 1 2

The couples are U-V, R-T and P-S. (V being the maternal grandfather shows his daughter S is married).

So,

1. W works with
b. G

2. Who among the following is the spouse of the person working with E?
b. S

3.   Which of the following pairs of persons form a married couple?
d. More than one of the above

4. Which of the following statements is/are definitely true?
a. U works with A
