The Elder Twin - puzzle - 29th October 2005, 07:36 PM

One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. Can you explain this?

That is one explanation, but there is another one. Think of February 29th.

OMG, I am not sure I even remember the answer now. But I will say this, Kerry and Terry are twins to each other, and they are not triplets or anything like that. And LK is on the right track.

Well LK made it real simple...I think.

Kerry born on Feb. 28 at around 11ish pm.

Terry born on Mar. 1 at around 1ish am.

During leap year, Kerry celebrated her birthday and her twin bro Terry celebrated his two days later on Mar. 1.

If this is correct, then I say remove this post and keep the puzzle open. If this post remains, it will be yet another way of explaining it, but not necessarily the correct way.

This is one of those puzzles that involve two “tricks”, and you guys have figured out one of them. But no Josh, you are still wrong. In your answer Kerry was born first, but the riddle clearly states that Terry is the older twin.
