Help with Visa 485 Online Application Questions

Hi everyone, I am currently working on the online application and have a couple of questions.

1. In this question "Provide details of all countries in which you, your spouse/de facto partner or dependents (accompanying or not) have lived for 12 months or more (since turning 16 years of age) during the last 10 years. The 12 month period of residence may be made up of a number of shorter periods. You must account for every year. "

- I do not have any dependents but I'm unable to move on unless I include my parents and siblings information as well. What should I do about this?

- Does this mean I have to remove my parents and siblings from the previous section as they are non-dependents? Question from application are as follows:

Provide details of ALL your family. Include family members who are not accompanying you to Australia as well as deceased family members. Where appropriate, you are required to provide details of the following family members:

Your parents
All your brothers and sisters (including full, half, step and adopted brothers and sisters)
All your children (including children from previous marriages/relationships)
All other members of your family unit. Information about which family members are considered to be a 'member of your family unit' for travel or migration purposes is available by referring to form 1496i Including family members in your application. Form 1496i is available from the department's website

Your siblings and parents are not ‘members of your family unit’
