English Language Tests, Intermediate level

ESL/EFL Test #729 "Real Life: Relationship Titles (2)", answer 3

I have four nephews. They are my brother's sons.

Correct answer: (b) nephews
_________________________

I check the dictionary and find out the meaning of 2 word as follows:
- Niece: brother's son
- Nephew: sister's daughter.
I don't understand the answer so far. Could you please explain me?
Thanks so much.

See Nephew is a male, It can be either your brother's son or sister's son, Similarly Niece refers to female, can be either your brother's daughter or sister's daughter.,. he or she can also be brother or sister's son or daughter to your spouse too..
