Three friends namely George, Michael and Robert are friends.
George is a widower and lives alone with his only daughter who takes care of him.
Michael is a bachelor and his niece cooks for him and looks after his house.
Robert is married to a charming lady called Christina and they live together in a large apartment in the same town.
Christina suggests that all of them could stay together in a single house and share monthly expenses equally. During their first month of living together, each person contributed \$1025. At the end of the month, it was found that \$4068 was the total expense so the remaining amount was distributed equally among everyone. The distribution was such that everyone received \$8 each.

There are only 4 people.
George is the father of Christina.
Michael is the uncle of Christina.
Robert is the husband of Christina.

Christina is George's daughter, Michael's niece & Robert's wife.
They live together and so each contributed \$1025 towards \$4068.
So 32\$ are left which is distributed back and each got 8\$
