Well done guys.
Q1. Its day time.
Q2. One was born just before midnight on dec 31st the other was born 10 minutes later on jan1st.
Q3 A slow clock is always slow, a fast clock is always fast. Stopped clock is right twice a day.

Here one more.
There a boat on a lake. It has a ladder hanging over the side. 5 of the rungs are in the water. The rungs are 1ft apart. The water rises 3ft. How many rungs are in the water now?

You are alone in a cave, and the only equipment you have is a wooden torch, a candle, an oil lamp and a camping stove. What do you light first?

there are 365 days in a year

but

there are 52 weeks in a year x 7 days in a week = 364

:001_unsure:
Correct, but not quite, a solar year is 364.25 days which is why we have a leap year.

The answer is you light a flame first. Without a flame you can't light any of the others. Even though you dont have a box of matches or a lighter there a number of ways to make a flame.

The answer is,there are still 5 rungs in the water, as the water rises, so does the boat.
