Try to answer this one as quickly as possible:

Your friend tells you: "Each year my birthday comes in the same day of the week as my younger brother's because they're exactly 14 days apart, I was born on a Monday so that means he was born on a Monday too"

Is she correct?

No, she's only correct if the brother was born in a year that her birthday was on a Monday

So the answer is NO
