    Need advice on answering a question, thx teachers!

    If a question asks:
    What is the relationship among Peter, Mary and Ma Dear? (knowing that they are father, daughter and mother)
    How should I answer it? should I say,
    They are a family.
    Please advise, thanks.

    You could say: Peter and Ma Dear are Mary's parents.
    Mary is Peter and Ma Dear's daughter.
