I find this question confusing:

From the graphic, (a) Schizophrenia, (b) Bipolar disorder, (c) Unipolar Disorder

Using the graph answer the following question  In cluster C, how many different groups of relatives show a statistically significant link with creative profession when compared to controls?

5,  1,  2,  3,  4

Which are they? 

Kyaga et al, Br J Psychiatry 2011 Nov 199(5): 373-9

significant results are those that do not cross the 1.0 line. in C section I counted 4 the didn't cross the line. I didn't get it right first time.

Yes you are right Carole.

first one is the patient which we don't count . The other three lines which do not cross 1 are the three you mentioned. Have to look at either side of line.
