Example 1 Let A be the set of all students of a boys school. Show that the relation R in A given by R = {(a, b) : a is sister of b} is the empty relation and R′ = {(a, b) : the difference between heights of a and b is less than 3 meters} is the universal relation. R R = {(a, b) : a is sister of b} It is a boys school, so there are no girls student. There cannot be sister of any student of the school. Hence, R = φ, i.e. R is an empty relation. R’ R’ = {(a, b) : the difference between heights of a and b is less than 3 meters} The difference between heights of any two students of the school has to be less than 3 meters(9.8 foot). So, R′ is the universal relation.
