EDITORIAL NOTE: LiveFreeOrDieNH will now be known as LFODNH for the rest of this game.

The score is now LFODNH 3 points and the rest of the board zero (0) !!

At this rate the game will not have to go to all 10 quizzes.

Puzzle # 4.

The family gathering consists of Father, Mother, Son, Daughter, Brother, Sister, Cousin, Nephew, Niece, Uncle and Aunt. Only two men and two women are present. They have a common ancestor, and there has been no consanguine marriage. Explain.

(I love essay questions !!!)

Bonus point for ANYONE who supplies the definition of consanguine. I honestly do not know the definition of that word.

consanguine --- Connected by or as if by kinship or common origin.

Basically, marrying your sister.

That is all for tonight. Same time tomorrow night I will post more quizzes. Gotta' go Mother's Day Shopping with the kids.

consanguine means sharing a common ancestor. in this i guess it would mean there were no incestuous marriages.

man_1: father of man_2

woman_1: sister of man_1 mother of woman_2

that's father, mother,son and daughter. and man_1 and woman_1 are brother and sister. man_2 is nephew to woman_1 wioman_2 is niece to man_1

man_1 and woman_1 are aunt,uncle respectively to each other's kids

woman1 and woman2 are cousins.

If you were not already winning I would give you a point for this effort.
