Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let A = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

How many symmetric relations on A contain exactly (a) four ordered pairs, (b) 5 , (c) seven and (d) eight

The book has solutions to the first two, which I didn't understand at all.

Please look the pic below

Can someone guide me through how to approach the problem?

Thanks
