I think that there is lượt thích a subject because the answers of this type of question is There is/ are______. Is it true? Is it necessary khổng lồ put there in the questions?
Let"s look at them without the "there":
How many people are in your family?
How many apples are in the fridge?
These are completely fine.
Bạn đang xem: How many family members are there in your family?
Technically, you would answer "How many are there?" with "There are X number of things", và you would answer "How many are?" (which is incomplete by the way, you need something lượt thích "in your family" or "in the fridge" with it) with "X number of things are...". So, if you just replace the question word with the answer word, you get:
How many people are there in your family? There are six people in my family.
How many apples are in the fridge? Six apples are in the fridge.
However, it is also completely fine to lớn say "Six people are in family." and "There are six apples in the fridge." (The "there are..." version sounds better khổng lồ me in most cases, although I would probably answer with just "Six.") Both questions are commonly used, and both answers are correct.
