If I have 2 more sisters than brothers and each of my sisters also has 2 more sisters than brothers, how many more sisters than brothers does my oldest brother have?

Something's not right here.

If I have 2 brothers, I must have 4 sisters. In this case, each of my sisters has 3 sisters and 3 brothers!?

But, if I have ONLY 4 sisters and no brothers, then each of my sisters has 3 sisters and 1 brother (2 more sisters than brothers).

my sisters and I all have 2 more sisters than brothers, which means I am a girl.

So that means there are 3 more girls in the family than boys.

there might be  5 girls and 2 boys

there might be  6 girls and 3 boys  etc

each boy will have  4 more sisters and brothers.

As examples:

if there were  5 girls and 2 boys   Then each boy would have 1 brother and 5 sisters

there might be  6 girls and 3 boys     Then each boy would have 2 brothers and 6 sisters

Hahaha... this is a girl's question. That's why I didn't understand the question.
