This year, the sum of ages of the Perkins family members is 78. Currently, there are 4 members: husband, wife, daughter, and son. The husband is 4 years older than the wife. The daughter is two years older than the son. If the husband is 7 times older than the son, how old is the daughter?

(B) 7
(C) 10

I think the question needs correction - it should say husband is 7 times as old as the son and not 7 times older than the son.
