my mother,,,,my father,,my grand mother,,my grandfather,,my brother,, my sister,,my uncle,,my aunty,,my nephew,,my niece ||||||||| 8 people total
grandmother and grandfather are the mother and father of your aunt and uncle, which are your brother and sister. Thats 6 people. For both brother and sister to be aunt and uncle as well, each of them must have one kid... the aunt has a daughter, and the uncle has a son, or vice versa
am i right?
if i am, the use of "my" was bad, since these are not the right relations to you after all. Puzzles like these usally say "a mother, a father, a nephew, etc, were present" not "my XXX, my XXX, etc" because then there is really 10 ppl there
