If Barbras Daughter is my daughters mother, then I am Barbras daughter, cuz as a female I can sat that no one elces daughter gave birth to my daughter except my mothers daughter( me) . Wow that was a lot to say for my first post.

(P.S. I'm dislexic so no need to correct the spelling I won't get it but feel free to let me know if I'm wrong with the problen)

Your daughter's mother is either yourself (if speaker is female) or your wife (if you are your daughter's father). So if your daughter's mother is Barbera's daughter, Barbera is either your Mother or your mother-in-law.

Take these ones backwards. Barbera's daughter is my daughter's mother.
Ok I know my daughters mother has to be me; now replace that part of the riddle with me.

"Barbera's daughter is me".

So Barbera is my mother, hence me being Barbera's daughter. That is the correct answer, bet my life on it.... kinda

Are we living in a world full of single parents?

My daughter has two parents (as a male If I were saying this my daughter's mother is my Wife (Norma De Plume (AKA Sue Denim). So this part of the riddle has 2 answers my daughters mother is either me or my wife.

Taking the first part of the riddle we determine that my Dautghter mother is Babera's daughter. So that means as posted earlier that Babebra is either my Mother or my Wifes mother.

Looking at it another way my daughter has 4 grand-parents and Barbera is her Maternal Grandmother, but there is no conclussive facts as to the gender of the 'speaker of the statement.

I am sticking to this answer. And Banebrain, I think you owe me half a life

Actually normdeplume, father or any male in family naming is not put in the posted answer choices at the end, as long as that's what this part of the riddle is.

"Mother
Grandmother
Daughter
I am Barbera
Great Grand Mother
Great Grand Daughter"

So there is no way that you could be a male in the outcome. If that is true then you must be the daughter of Barbera.
Hehe. I keep my life. You can still have it if you want

The puzzle asks: Who am I to Barbara - NOT who is Barbara to me. Hence the correct answer is ... Daughter. Unless of course I am a male. Then the correct answer is not in the choices listed, it's Son-in-Law.

I think the answer is none of the choices. " Barbera's daughter is my daughter's mother." Looking at the sentence, we therefore conclude that the one talking is Barbera's daughter's husband. By looking at the phrase "my daughter's mother", we could determine that Barbera's daughter and the one talking are husband and wife. So the "I" is Barbera's son in law.
