Twins (Posted on 2002-05-29) Difficulty: 3 of 5
One day Kerry celebrated her birthday.

Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday.

How can this be, assuming that the difference in twins' ages can be a few minutes, but not over an hour?

Terry was born on March 1. Then, Kerry was born on February 28. Now, it is a leap year, so Kerry's birthday is two days before Terry's birthday.
