Looking at a picture he said, ‘He is my grandmother’s daughter-in-law’s only son’s wife’
Grandmother’s daughter-in-law is his mother. Mother’s only son is he himself. So the the person in the picture is his wife.

Try to draw the family tree while solving the questions

The important aspect is that the diagram should always clearly depict the ‘Generation’ and reflect the ‘Gender’. Hence, ‘Horizontal lines’ are drawn to indicate marriage; vertical lines indicate children, broken lines for sibling relationship and for the gender, we can use ‘m’ for male and ‘f’ for ‘female’ and ‘x’ for unknown.
Some generally used notations or symbols:
_____       = marriage relationship
– – – – –      = sibling relationship
| or / or \   = children
m = male, M = mother
f = female, F = father.

Note: You can use what ever notations you think easy for you but stick to them and practice so that you can do it fast during exams.
