What's more intuitive than a is the parent of b? Is this question copied correctly?

No idea how to solve with it

If aRb and bRc then $aR^2c$. If aRb and bRc and cRd then $aR^3c$. If aRb and bRc, that is, a is the parent of b and b is the parent of c, what is the relation between a and c? Thanks from franklee809
