"Vous avez des frères et sœurs ?" means: Are you brothers and sisters? .... Can someone please explain why avoir is used and not être. ..... Thanks
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate avoir (j'ai, tu as, vous avez) in Le Présent (present tense)"

The sentence 'Vous avez des frères et sœurs ?' actually means " Do you have brothers and sisters ? "
The verb 'avoir' is used here which means "to have".
For the sentence 'Are you brothers and sisters?' , the French translation would be as "Êtes-vous frères et sœurs ? "
