Ie and eg both mean ´for example´ its just a short easy way of writing it

Btw its ´what does´ not ´what is´ when asking for meaning not substance

I have 2 people, 1 girl and 1 boy... (My brother and sister)
If i want to tell to someone about 1 girl and that boy at once, what should i say?
E.g. "i love them as my.
..?" (my what? My 'brother and sister', 'my brother' that mean -maybe- both of them, or other?)

I'm not sure.
But sibling means brother or sister.

Good Work Guys!
Interesting way to educate English Language Learners

@VLADISLAUS, Sibling is the right word. e.g. if you have one bro & two sisters, u'd say i've three siblings or we're four siblings (including u).

e.g. = for example
i.e. = that is

@cyber-shoter

I'll try to help

- We use at to show a specific place or position.

For example:
Someone is at the door.
They are waiting at the bus stop.
I used to live at 51 Portland Street.

- We use on to show position on a horizontal or vertical surface.

For example:
The cat sat on the mat.
The satellite dish is on the roof.

We also use on to show position on streets, roads, etc.

For example:
I used to live on Portland Street.

The word on is also used to describe the date that an event occurred on

For example:
We celebrate Tom's birthday on the 7th of September.

-We use in to show that something is enclosed or surrounded.

For example:
The dog is in the garden.
She is in a taxi.
Put it in the box.

We also use in to show position within land-areas (towns, counties, states, countries, and continents).

For example:
I used to live in Nottingham.

If I may just add...

e.g. is short for the latin phrase "exempli gratia" which means "for example".

example: The phone is availabe in wierd colors. (e.g. dark-white, light-black, untravioletish-blue, etc.)

i.e. is short for the latin phrase "id est" which means "that is" or "in other words" used to sum up a previous discussion or phrase.

example: In windows, press the buttons Alt and F4 together, i.e., close the current Application.
