Hi! I'm trying to grasp the use of ga and quantifiers. Can anyone help me with the following? ありがとう ございます。:)

 

1. Do the following question and answer make sense? 

Q: こどもがなんにんいますか。= how many children do you have?

A: わたしとつまはこどもが二人います。= my wife and i have 2 children. 

 

2. Do the following 2 sentences have the same meaning? I would like to say " How many people are there in this company?"

a. このかいしゃになんにんいますか。

b. このかいしゃにひとがなんいますか。

 

3. How do you know if ”こどもがさんにんいます。” means 'There are 3 children' or 'I have 3 children'? 

 

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?
