Best answer

Let $\to$ represent the child relation.

  • $\{X,Y\} \to P, Q$
  • $P \to S$
  • $\{Z,W\}\to R$
  • Further either $P$ or $P's$ spouse is the child of $Z$ so that $S$ become the grand daughter of $Z.$
  1.  $X$ is the mother-in-law of $R$ -- possible if $X$ is married to either $P$ or $Q.$
  2. $P$ and $R$ are not married to each other -- $P$ has only $R$ to marry as $Q$ is a spouse and $S$ daughter, but $P$ can also be married to anyone not mentioned in the question. So, this is possible.
  3. $P$ is a son of $X$ and $Y$ -- possible as $P$ can either be a son or daughter of $X$ and $Y.$
  4. $Q$ cannot be married to $R$ -- FALSE as $Q$ can be married to $R.$
