I think "Do you have siblings?" would be a correct alternative. Reported on Nov. 19, 2017.

I just reported this too in mid December! Mine was marked wrong for, "Do you have siblings?" Beta is giving me a headache.

Let's get rid of 家人 and ask if you have 爸妈哥弟姐妹

"兄" is big brother. Just like in Japanese.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maartendoc

兄 (xiōng) = elder brother
弟 (dì) = younger brother
姐 (jiě) = elder sister
妹 (mèi) = younger sister

We also saw:
哥哥 (gēge) = elder brother

Do you have any brothers or sisters.

Yes both with and without "any" should be accepted. "Sibling" is fairly technical in English and not used in daily conversation that much.

兄弟...妹 : all if this is siblings ?

What would singular sibling be ?

The same, I should imagine.

"Do you have siblings" should be correct.

It was accepted now


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TonyBerjaya

A proper way should be: Do you have siblings?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PatrickSac9

Do you have a sibling should have been accepted!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnitagnesJ

"do you have any brothers or sisters?" Should be accepted too :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Stephen241623

“Do you have siblings or not?” is not accepted, for some reason.

My Chinese dictionary says that:

" Yíge xiōngdì " = " a brother".
