Answer:

In the case of a Hindu female dying intestate, it shall devolve in the manner as per Sec. 15 of the Hindu Succession Act.

 

Thus, in the given problem,

 

Illegitimate son can claim a share in the property of the mother, though he cannot claim the property of the stepfather.

 

One illegitimate son, two legitimate sons and legitimate daughter, belong to the entry and are eligible to get shares.

 

The paramour of the female is excluded from inheritance and he cannot claim her property.

 

So, the property is divided into 4 equal parts and each of the heirs namely illegitimate son, two legitimate sons and a legitimate daughter shall get one share each.
