From above definition, a family contains householder and at least one person related to the house holder. In other words, a family contains at least one house holder and a person related to the house holder.

A All householders are members of families. (Definitely goes way out of the definition – Family contains a householder and one person related to the Householder - eliminate it)

B All families include a householder. (Hold it)

C All of the people related to a householder form a family. (Definitely not as per the argument)

D Some people residing in group living quarters are members of families. (May be / may not be – Eliminate it)

E Some homeless people reside in group living quarters. (Eliminate it)

Answer: B

"B"

A is not possible because all householders might not be related to the householder ( at least one person as mentioned in the original sentence )

C,D,and E are out of scope.
