Why is the correct answer "wier", not "wiens"?

'Wier' is the feminine version of 'wiens'.

Thank you! I thought it had to do something with "het" and "de"... But in this case it will be "het meisje/ de vrouw wier... " and "de man wiens..."

Is het verkeerd om te zeggen: Zij is het meisje wiens broer is weg?
