If she says 'No', first check your addition and then go back through the list to check with the respondent whether you have obtained the information correctly. For example, starting with CM4, you would ask: "YOU HAVE TWO SONS AND ONE DAUGHTER LIVING WITH YOU, IS THAT CORRECT?" Do the same for CM6 and CM8. Correct the answers and the sum mentioned in CM9 and then continue to the next question. Make sure to cancel the 'No' in CM10 and check 'Yes' after you have made the corrections.
