Your ability to analyze, understand and reason out some perplexing logics that wants your full concentration. Brisk reading, analyzing given facts and puzzling out the problem by a given set of information acutely are the best ways to clear this portion of the exam.
Reasoning test is broadly classified in two categories:

Verbal reasoning tests are resolved on the basis of words, sentences and sounds that are written in some pattern to convey some meaning.On the other hand non-verbal test is completely based on pictures, gestures, symbols, signs that are not uttered still express some meaning.
Under this broad category, we start with topic “Blood Relation” that associates with “Family” same as yours. Here for every relationship we will denote symbols that help to clarify the concept. Lets have a look at the symbols we use to represent the different family relationships:
In general, Males and Females are denoted as Male (M+) and Females (F-).
Husband and Wife Relationship:
Here we symbolize the relation with a double headed arrow as:
A is husband of B
P is male and spouse of Q
Brother and Sister Relationship:
Here we denote this brother sister relationship with a single headed arrow as:
K is sister of T
P is the brother of Q
Parent and Child Relationship:

C is father of D
T is son of K
For All Respective persons like Grandmother and Grand father:
Down single Headed arrow is used to define the relationship of Grands as:
S is father of T, P is father of S and T is son.
How to Solve the given problems:
A and B are children of C, C is the mother of A but B is not the brother of A, what is B to C?
Break the question into different parts A and B are children of C
C is mother of A but B is not the brother of A
The Question is, What is B to C?
B is female has mother C implies B is daughter of C.Hence B option is correct.,
Amit is brother of the son of kamal’s son. What is the relation between Amit and Kamal?
Amit is grandson of kamal
Amit is son of kamal
Amit is brother of Kamal
Amit has no blood relation with Kamal
Break the problem
Amit is brother implies Amit+
Son of Kamal’s son
Combining both the statements
From diagram, it clearly seen that relationships are of Grands. In given options, we have only the first option of Grandson, hence we go for A option “Amit is grandson of kamal”.
A is the father of C but C is not his son. E is the daughter of C. F is the spouse of A. B is the brother of C. D is the son of B.G is the spouse of B. H is the father of G.
Let’s Break the problem

E is the daughter of C.
F is the spouse of A
B is the brother of C
D is the son of B
G is the spouse of B
H is the father of G.
Completing the diagram
Ques1:Who is the Grandmother of D?
It clearly indicates that F is the Grandmother of D. Hence option C is correctQues2:Who is the son of F?
The diagram shows that B is the son of F. Hence A option is correct.***NOTE***Maternal aunt/ Maternal uncle is from the side of mother relationsPaternal aunt/ Paternal uncle is from the side of Father relations.
