# Relation diagram

I am new to LaTex, and I don't know how to draw this relation Diagram. I have tried but it didn't come out, can you help me with it? Thank you so much.

Below is a direct method using TikZ. (For the code for arrows pointing to the points themselves, you can see, for example, this answer.)

\documentclass[tikz,border=1mm]{standalone}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
% Dots
\fill (0,0) circle (.5mm);
\fill (0,1) circle (.5mm);
\fill (-0.866,-0.5) circle (.5mm);
\fill (0.866,-0.5) circle (.5mm);
% Labels
\node at (0,0.2) {$e$};
\node at (0,1.2) {$c$};
\node at (-1,-0.7) {$d$};
\node at (1,-0.7) {$b$};
% Arrows
\draw[green,-stealth] (0,1) to [bend right=50] (-0.866,-0.5);
\draw[green,-stealth] (-0.866,-0.5) to [bend right=50] (0.866,-0.5);
\draw[green,-stealth] (0.866,-0.5) to [bend right=50] (0,1);
\draw[blue,-stealth] (-0.866,-0.5) to [bend right=20] (0,1);
\draw[blue,-stealth] (0,1) to [bend right=20] (0.866,-0.5);
\draw[blue,-stealth] (0.866,-0.5) to [bend right=20] (-0.866,-0.5);
\draw[red,-stealth] (0,1) arc (270:-90:3mm);
\draw[red,-stealth] (-0.866,-0.5) arc (420:60:3mm);
\draw[red,-stealth] (0.866,-0.5) arc (480:120:3mm);
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}
