This is a test of logic and attention to detailed instructions. Options B and D can be ruled out because both contradict the information given in the question. Option C could be correct as there is nothing in the question that rules out the possibility that X married a doctor.

Equally, it could be incorrect if one of the other women married a doctor, but we don't know their choices. If one of them married a doctor than option A would be correct, i.e. that none of the options A to D is true.

The answer to this question is A. None of these statements are correct. There are clear instructions on who the lawyer, doctor, and engineer are but none of the statements just seem to fit well. A is a lawyer which means that X married a lawyer.

Y is not married to an engineer which means that Y is married to a doctor and Z is married to the engineer. Based on all of the things that you have learned, it is safe to conclude why none of the statements are correct.
