At the Christmas party of the "Sweaty Chef" kebab shop, the owner Mr Juan, took note of how many people were present. Although he was a bit tipsy when he made his note, and thus made a mistake. His notes were as follows:-

1, There were 9 men and children.

2, There were 2 more women than children.

3, The number of different man-woman couples possible was 24. Note that if there were 7 men and 5 women, then there would have been 35 man-woman couples possible.

Also, of the three groups - men, women and children - at the party:

4, There were 4 of one group.

5, There were 6 of one group.

6, There were 8 of one group.
Exactly one of the above 6 statements is false.

Can you tell which one is false? Also, how many men, women and children are there at the party?
