Communications channel question.

I'm confused whether to count Project manager as a team member. Consider the following question:

 

 You are the project manager. You have a team of 5 members. They communicate with each other regularly. How many communication channels are in your team:

1. 10

2. 15

 

I answered 15...because I added 1 for the Project manager also. but the correct answer was 10. I'm confused whether to add Project manager also or no.

Project manager will obviously communicate with the team, so you have to consider a 6 people team in my opinion.
