Correct Answer - Option 3 : Only Conclusion 1 follows.

Conclusions:

1. Mona is a member of my family. She is either a doctor or a teacher → True (As mentioned in the statement that all the females of the family are either doctors or teachers. And, Mona is a female member of the family being either doctor or a teacher is true).

2. Sonu is a member of my family. He is either a doctor or an engineer → False (As Sonu is a male member of the family, there is no information regarding the occupation of male members in the family. So, this conclusion does not follow).

Therefore, only conclusion 1 logically follows the given statement.

Hence, the correct answer is "Only Conclusion 1 follows".
