Why is there an "a" in this sentence?

Do more research on the personal 'a' in Spanish. It definitely helps! (I'm still struggling myself with this concept)

It didn't specify that the brother was the professor's brother so I didn't know to make it feminine...

If the brother is not the professor's brother, it would be better to translate this to: El profesor incluye al hermano de ella.

The grammar is ambiguous. Maybe consider an edit.

the professor includes HER brother

...plus... professor wasn't an option so i imagine this helps determine the context, that it was her (the professor's ) brother and not Her... some student or other female's brother

DL refused "El profesor incluye al hermano de ella".

"El profesor incluye a su hermano" was suggested instead --- which could be "...his brother" or "...her brother" .

The Translation offered at the top of this page is "La profesora incluye a su hermano" which could also be "his or her brother".

What happened to all the corrections over the last five years. The quality of these exercises has gone backwards!
