Will her little sister be safe in China?

The parents of one of the students may move to China for two years or so, as her father might have to work for his company there. Some students were concerned for the safety of their fellow student’s little sister.

Student X: But she has a little sister. There can only be one child per family. They cull all the others.

Imagine you were in the teacher’s place. How would you answer?

Please post your comments. After five different suggestions, I’ll add what the teacher did actually answer.
