RAP question

I'm having trouble understanding the RAP.  Can someone please tell me if any of these conveyances violate the RAP?
Thank you! ;D



Do any of these conveyances violate the Rule Against Perpetuities? 

1)   O conveys to A for life, then to As children for life, then to As grandchildren for life. 
2)   O conveys to A for life, then to As widow, if any, for life, then to As   issue then living. 
3)   O conveys to A for life, then to As widow for life, then to As children.
4)   By will, o devises Blackacre to Os widow for life, then to Os children who are then alive. 
5)   O conveys Whiteacre to A for life, then to As first child if he survives A by 21 years.  A has no children.

You have to ask your professor if they count artificial reproductive technology first.
