1 find the doctor and the engineer on Sun May 02, 2010 1:26 pm

One of Mr. Bajaj, his wife, their son and Mr. Bajaj's mother is an Engineer and
another is a Doctor.
• If the Doctor is a male, then the Engineer is a male.
• If the Engineer is younger than the Doctor, then the Engineer and the
Doctor are not blood relatives.
• If the Engineer is a female, then she and the Doctor are blood relatives.
Can you tell who is the Doctor and the Engineer?

FATHER IS ENGINEER
AND
MOTHER IS DOCTOR

ASSUMING THAT THE HUSBAND IS YOUNGER THAN WIFE.

I think from 3, if the Engineer is a
female, the Doctor is a male.

But from 1, if the Doctor is a male, then the
Engineer is a male.

Thus, there is a contradiction, if the Engineer is a female.
Hence, either Mr. Bajaj or his son is the Engineer.
Mr. Bajaj's son is the youngest of all four and is blood relative of each of them.
So from 2, Mr. Bajaj's son is not the Engineer. Hence, Mr. Bajaj is the Engineer.

Now from 2, Mr. Bajaj's mother can not be the Doctor. So the Doctor is either his
wife or his son . It is not possible to determine anything further.
