Foreigners often make some strange mistakes in Chinese when they study the most difficult language— —Chinese. We try to analyze typical sentences to correct these errors.

        Wǒ fēicháng xǐhuān wǒ dìdì de liǎng gè nǚ’ér, wǒ cháng hé tā yìqǐ xiàqí .
False: 我非常喜欢我弟弟的两个女儿,我常和一起下棋。
        Wǒ fēicháng xǐhuān wǒ dìdì de liǎng gè nǚ’ér, wǒ cháng hé tāmen yìqǐ xiàqí.
True: 我非常喜欢我弟弟的两个女儿,我常和她们一起下棋。

“她”指弟弟的两个女儿。“两个女儿”是复数,“她”是单数,前后矛盾,应改“她”为“她们”。
她 refers to the two daughters. 两个女儿 is plural while 她 is singular. To remove the contradiction, we change 她 into 她们.
