The reason I got this wrong is because it says "each of them had one brother", what's wrong with this is that I said six,it said it was five.

I think there 6 girls have 1 brother and 2 parents.

Each girl has one brother meaning that all 7 sisters share on brother.
Family includes father and the mother too so
7+1+2=10
