There are 6 sisters. Each sister has 1 brother. How many brothers are in the sisters family?

There are 2 answers to this question based on the punctuation, as in sisters pleural or sisters singular with an apostrophe, such as sister's family, meaning possessive.

So,

With sister's possessive, as in 1 brother/sister/family unit, thus the answer is 1.

With sisters pleural then collectively there are a total of 6 brothers/sisters/family unit, thus the answer is 6.

Therefore the true answer, since the sister's possessive is missing, then the answer is 6.

That wouldn't be the proper way to use sister's in the sentence. The answer is one brother.
