Deductive/Inductive reasoning skills....if you dare.

A woman is walking through a castle. She comes upon a portrait of a gentleman. She says to herself, "This man is not my father. But his mother, is my mother's mother-in-law."

How is the woman related to the man in the portrait?

Hint: It's easier than you think.

JustPlainBill. You're asking a question? You don't need to as you have the correct answer. They are uncle & niece. Good job.

Next one about buckets and water coming soon.
