Sisters
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
A 40 year old woman hadn't seen her sister in 4 years. They decided to get together and meet at a mall with their kids. The first woman has a boy and 2 girls. The second has 2 boys and 2 girls. How many sisters are there in all?
HintDon't forget about the moms.

 A bit easy, keep working on them. As for you secerlemak, I think you should reread the teaser, I think it did a good job on teasing you.

 used very little logic to arrive at correct answer, too easy, i figured i must have overlooked the trick, there was none

 That one was kinda confusing. I still don't get it. There isn't any detail in the answer to understand. Oh well. Good job anyway!

 Extremely easy. Good job. i like the ones that make sense, and I can answer without looking at the answer. Next time though, a little harder wouldn't hurt!

 Mom #one
~~~~~~~~~~~
Boy has 2 sisters
First girl has 1 sister
Second girl has 1 sister
sub total with mom #one: 4 (not 5)
Grand Total: (4+6+2) 12
I calculated 12 as well  this is how many sister relationships there are.
The given answer, 6, is how many people are sisters.

 Yeah I agree with Tintin and Marc, the question is poorly phrased. I would have said 12 as well.
