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.

Consumer income reports produced by the government distinguish between households and families by means of the following definition:
1: "A family is a household containing a householder and at least one person related to the householder."
2: Except for the homeless and people in group living quarters, most people live in households.

According to the definition above, which of the following must be true?
A All householders are members of families.
>> Not always. Why?
a. Family = 1 HH + at-least 1 person related to HH.
b. most people live in households.

B All families include a householder.
>>Yeah.Why?
Family = 1 HH + at-least 1 person related to HH.


C All of the people related to a householder form a family.
>>Not as per the arg.Arg says
Family = 1 HH + at-least 1 person related to HH.

D Some people residing in group living quarters are members of families.
Nope like this in arg.Why? Just living in a HH doesn't mean it forms a family.
Except for the homeless and people in group living quarters, most people live in households.

E Some homeless people reside in group living quarters.
Nope like this in arg.Why? Arg mentions them as 2 separate category.
Except for the
---homeless and
---people in group living quarters,
most people live in households.

"Homeless" are usually people living on streets. They are not the same as the people in group living quarters. The argument mentions two groups of people: "homeless (i.e. people living on the streets)" and "people in group living quarters". It does not imply that some homeless live in group living quarters.
