Consider the following situation: Mildred, a widow, dies at the age of 82, leaving an estate consisting of millions in stocks and bonds. Quite miraculously, she is survived by both her parents, gluten-free vegans with a low-stress lifestyle. Mildred is also survived by her adopted sister Angelina and Angelina’s daughter, Zahara. She had three children, all of whom have predeceased her. One of Mildred’s daughters, Myrna, was survived by one of her two daughters, Flora. Flora has no husband, but has a daughter. Myrna’s other daughter, Carrie, died leaving a husband and four surviving sons. Mildred’s son, Daniel, died a childless widower. Mildred’s second daughter, Helga, had three sons, only one of whom survived her. One son, Max, has died, but he left a wife and three children. The second son, Finlay, is unmarried and childless. The third son, Gregory, died, leaving behind a wife and one daughter.

•What system of representation does your state follow? (Remember that the word “representation” does not tell you which system – you need to find a definition of representation, which may be in a different provision.)
•Under that system, how will Mildred’s estate be distributed?
•How would the estate be distributed if Mildred’s had been survived only by her parents and her husband?
