What to answer to the question 'Can anyone claim (my Wife's name) as a dependent on their tax return' if I would like to claim my wife to the return.

It is asking if someone, such as your spouses parent, can claim her as a dependent - not if you can.  Answer no, if she is not a dependent of someone else.

You can never claim a spouse as a dependent.
