This reminds me of Jeremy Kyle tbh
2. B???
3. I really do not like Theresa

Right, but because of the nature of multiple choice we know that mother in law is not an option.
Right and as I stated in my first post I think the options are stupid because it doesn't include mother-in-law which is what the majority of people have concluded the relation is. You don't need the list of options to work out what the connection is.
5. F. My mother in law

"Teresa's daughter is my daughter's mother"

my daughter's mother is actually me (i.e. the person who is asking the puzzle).

Therefore:

Teresa's daughter is me (i.e. the person who is asking the puzzle is Teresa's daughter).

Note: As there are only females available for the answer, the answer cannot be a male.

So as many of you may have found out, you are Teresa's daughter. To explain *cough, cough*…Teresa's daughter = My daughter's mother. My daughter's mother = you. So therefore Teresa's daughter = You.
9. B) my mother. I've written down my working.

But the father could also say Teresa's daughter is my daughters mother? I.e the daughter of Teresa is the mother off my child.
Yes, but out of the options available, Teresa can't be your mother in law, so she must be your mother.
11. It's D isn't it? If Theresa's daughter is (my daughter's mother AKA me) then Theresa is my mother, assuming I'm female
If Theresa's daughter is (my daughter's mother AKA my wife) then Theresa is my mother-in-law, assuming I'm male

No, you don't need it, but when you find out that the answer is either mother or mother in law, and you look at the available options, then it's obviously mother, not mother in law.

I get that, I'm saying I'm breaking out of the mould and putting which answer I think best fits the riddle. I don't need options to tell me, because if you remove the options and the best fitting answer changes to something which wasn't even on the list in the first place then it should still be the overall best fitting answer. It's not my problem that the person who gave the options was too short-sighted to even work out alternative answers to the riddle they made.

That my friend is called thinking laterally.

P.S. Who the heck gives answer options to a riddle in the first place??

Yeah, I guess that's all true. I don't see why mother in law would be the best fitting answer though. Yes, the speaker says "My daughter's mother" but that could just be because it's a riddle, and that's what riddles are like.

Riddles are written to confuse you but they're also grammatically correct so you choose the precise answer that fits the grammatically correct sentence.

Is mother in law the grammatically correct one though?

What we really need, is the thread starter to just tell us the answer
20. Mother in law. Teresa's daughter is my daughters Mother so I've had a child with Teresa's daughter. Therefore she is my mother in law.
