    The correct answer to "How many people are there in your family?" would be a number, in this case "Three". Can you come up with a question which would lead to the answer you gave?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    They are both correct. I think most native speakers would use 'me'.
