**Explanation : **

## Family of two generations

From the given information, we know that U is P’s daughter and Q is R’s mother-in-law. This means that R is married to one of Q’s children.

We also know that T is an unmarried male and S is a male. Since there are two married couples in the family and T is unmarried, S must be married.

Since R is married to one of Q’s children and S is married, it follows that R must be married to S. Therefore, (b) R is S’s wife.
