No, you haven't. At least to me.

With this you have 5 process in total.
Code:
P

C    C

GC  GC

Did you mean 4 process apart from the base process?

Did you mean level-1 child or the level-2 child?

This is stating that child exit status is not taken care/handled by the parent process.

Would you mind to show your code / atleast the snippet?
