2. Relevant equations- None

3. Attempts at a SolutionHere is where I am confused. Reflexivity is defined byaRa. So I am unclear what to do with more than one variable. So in this question, do I examine ifxRx? That is to say is x a parent of x? If that is the case, then the answer is clearly no. I am just unsure of how to deal with reflexivity.

I am ok with symmetry and transitivity.
