"she has no brothers" would be more commonly said than "she has no brother"

I got this as an answer - She does not have any brothers - but it might've been fixed recently...

This is not correct in French. With "aucun" you need negative adverb "ne/n'": "elle n'a aucun frère."

Well, nobody uses those n's while talking anyway... Studying everything correctly makes understanding real French harder. Somebody has a funny video on youtube about what "Je ne sais pas" contracts to ("shpa") and that's exactly what I hear in the French movies.
