Icon15 I-864 - i864 or i864a or both ??

hi heres my situation
at the moment, certainly i wont be able to meet the 125% poverty guideline, unless i hit the powerball jackpot
i share an apartment with my sister and brother, same residence
my i130 petition for my wife and 6yr old son has just been approved
my sister agreed to help using her income
question, what forms do we have to or u guys suggest we fill out ?
heres my guess
I as the main sponsor/petitioner fill out i864 , im pretty sure about this one
and my sister fills out i864a ? as a household member (her income will be combined with mine i think)
or
does my sister have to (also) fill out a separate i864 as a joint sponsor?

follow up question, what would be our total household size ? that i put in the i864 form... my guess is 4? (me and my sister plus 2 beneficiaries namely my wife and my 6yr old son)

thanks in advance

You could do it this way,

Or you could do it this way.

The consular officer who processes your relatives' visa applications may have their own opinion on how it should be done.

Depends on whether your sister is a contributing household member or not.

alrite i think im just gonna have my sister act as a contributing household member (instead of a joint sponsor), have her fill out i864a and me fill out i864 where i put in 4 (me, my sister + 2 beneficiaries, my wife and my son)as household size , is that correct?

my brother who lives with me and my sister, may not be included in the household size count, correct?
