My first thought was "Who is the daughter of the man who is going to the province?", but M&F say that the interrogative pronoun would be "quis' for both masculine and feminine. Is "quae" here, instead, an interrogative adjective, giving "Which (woman) is the daughter of the man...?"?11. Quae est fīlia hominis ad prōvinciam euntis?

Although the actual situation is more complicated (so "quae" is sometimes used substantively and "quis" adjectively), I think you're supposed to understand it as "which woman" (which isn't necessarily all that different from "who"), or, since "qui" can also mean "what (kind of)", it could be "what (kind of) woman" -- I think the former is more likely, but the latter does occur.
