This is not really the correct forum, but very briefly, and in rough order of
complexity, you can do a summary (which counts the occurences of the
categories in a factor), you could look at crosstabulations of questions
(e.g ?table, ?tabulate, ?chisq.test), and also measures of association in

If you have some ordered factors, there are somewhat different
considerations (and different measures of association) than if they're all

What analysis you might do depends on what questions you want to answer.
