Property inheritance according to hindu succession law when there are no immediate legal heirs

Person A owned land and passed away without leaving behind any spouse, children, or parents. He had four siblings, but only one of them is still alive. All the siblings had children. According to Hindu Succession Law, who will inherit the property of Person A, and can the children of the deceased siblings claim a share in the property?

Yes.  His siblings and the deceased siblings' legal heirs have an equal share in the property of A.

The property shall devolve among his siblings / their LRs 

What is your concern / locus standi, if it is not an examination hall question paper ?

As he's no first class heirs then  2 class heirs will inherit ,that is his only surviving sibling inherits entire property ,predeceased siblings children's don't inherit .
