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,

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

2. 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.
