One bowl of rice is shared between 2
one bowl of dal is shared between 3
one bowl of vegetable is shared between 5
one bowl of shreekhand is shared between 6
for no wastage, minimum number of people required = LCM of 2,3,5,6

LCM of 2,3,5.6 = 2*3*5 = 30
If there were 30 people, 
number of rice bowl = 30/2 = 15
number of dal bowl = 30/3 = 10
number of vegetable bowl = 30/5 = 6
number of shreekhand bowl = 30/6 = 5
total bowl in 30 people = 10+15+5+6 = 36

Given that total number of bowls = 108
total people = 108/36 * 30 = 90 people

So there were total 90 relatives.
