The symbol you are talking is a paragraph mark. your cousin might have
activated the paragraph mark and underline option. Click on the paragraph
mark under the Home tab located just before the Styles tab. And also
uncheck the underline symbol under Home tab below the Font dropdown.

See "What do all those funny marks, like the dots between the words in my
document, and the square bullets in the left margin, mean?" at
