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.

Math student
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

Another way to word it would be :  
A man and a woman have 7 daughters together (or - "with each-other" so that step-children are excluded).
Each daughter has one brother. (or you could even say that "for each daughter, there is one brother" and it would be even more confusing ????).
