You would answer no because she didn't support her.  Do you, your girl friend and you daughter all live together in the same home? If so, the best filing situation for the 3 of you would be for you to claim your daughter as a qualifying child dependent assuming she lived with you more than half the year. If your girl friend lived with you the entire year and made less than $4050, you could claim her as a qualifying relative dependent.

We all lived together all year. My girlfriend is a stay at home mom. So she didn't have an income this year but the way it's worded was weird. I checked no. I just wanted to make sure I clicked the correct box. Thank you

There are so many variations of living situations that some of the interview questions don't make sense in all situations.
