Lately, I got the 12 markers-YDNA results of the direct paternal line of my paternal grandmother. FTDNA's prediction was E-L117. I only got one perfect match and he's also predicted E-L117. So I ordered these snps : V13 and M123 and both came out negative. I then ordered M78 and I got a positive result.
With the haplotype, can someone tell me which SNP under M78 is more likely to be positive. I'm not familiar with haplogroup E.

Here's the haplotype (FTDNA)

13 24 13 11 14-16 11 12 12 13 11 31


Thanks for the help !

Congrats, it looks like you are V13+

That's surprising given your paternal lineage is Turkish right? There is another V12 match, so that is possible.
,

edit: ok i obviously jumped the last part and missed the first sentence that it is about your maternal relative. V12 is possible then

Not exactly my paternal line :) But the direct paternal line of my paternal grandmother is (according to oral history-- not sure) Tagarin (Valencia, Vinaros) or Turkish (Thessaly). But according to the autosomal dna results , her non-north african ancestry is mostly turkish (South euro (italian+ balkan), ME and E. Asia) and no Iberian. The problem is my cousin's perfect match is from Spain...
