B is the son of C but C is not the mother of B means C is the father of B. A is married to C means A is the mother of B. F is the brother of B means F is son of A and C. D is the daughter of A means D is daughter of A and C. 
6. (d); A is the mother and hence female. B is the son and hence male. C is the husband and hence male. D is the daughter and hence female. E is the brother and hence male. F is the son and hence male. So, there are four males. 
7.(d); Clearly, A is the mother of B.
8.(c); A has son B, son F and daughter D i.e. three children.
