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.

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?).  
How many members are in the immediate family?
