arun kumar   If a man is born into the brown group it means
Father: Red group born
Mother: Brown group born

So uncle can be red group born or brown group born. (Maternal uncle will be brown group and paternal uncle will be of red group) Hence A is true.

After marriage man will turn into red. The man will have a red daughter and son. B and C are false.

As daughter is red. So son in law will be brown group. Hence D is false

Only A is true
