I am only commenting on the wording of the original statement:  "A cousin's grandfather listed Russia as his country of origin, but German as his language on the 1910 census. His wife listed Yiddish as her language...."
and on reason A below.  

 In 1910 the census taker came to the door and questioned a  responsible person .  The likely person in this case was his wife.  Not until 1960 did mail-out forms become the primary method of data collection.
