My homework is asking about my family but the question after asks about what they do. How do I answer the question of who are they?

The question was "How many people are there in your family? Who are they (besides yourself)?

Example: 我家只有一口人, 那就是我.

  • Is it allowed to ask help for homeworks? I'm not sure.

  • This is a new contributor, so perhaps s/he does not know and should be directed to the rules. But long time contributors should know better than to do other people's homework for them.

  • As a beginner, these kinds of questions are great for me. Pinyin is helpful as my vocabulary is still growing Dec 10, 2021 at 21:36

For example: 我家有五口人,我们是我父母,我妹妹,我哥哥还有我。I think you should just say how are they related to you.

  • "我家有五口人,我父母,我妹妹,我哥哥还有我." Or "我家有五口人,除了我, 其他四口是我父母,我妹妹,还有我哥哥."
