Ready for the answer?

Are you sure?

Really, really sure?!

Okay, here it is…

If you guessed it’s the daughter was asking the question, then you’re correct! The riddle may seem baffling, but it’s just another way to say “I am my mother’s daughter,” according to Mental Floss.

Still confused? Here’s another way to break it down: The words “my daughter’s mother” is another way to say “me,” according to Buzzfeed. If you replace that phrase with me, it then reads, “If Teresa’s daughter is me, what am I to Teresa?” However, some people around the web think there could be more than one answer.

Commenters claim the answer could also be daughter-in-law or son-in-law. “Either the speaker is the daughter of Teresa or the speaker is married to the daughter of Teresa,” one commenter wrote on Facebook. There are actually three options: Teresa’s daughter, son-in-law or daughter-in-law.”
