“Vous êtes vendeues “

I chose Grace and Tom speaking but my answer was wrong the correct one was Grace and Anna.Can anyone explain why since vous is to address both gender.Many thanks.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Job titles differ depending on whether you're a man or a woman (nouns)"

Grace and Tom are a mixed gender group, whereas Grace and Anna are a pure female group. Vous êtes vendeuses is the female form and hence leaves no room for Tom.
