Three brothers share a family sport:
A non-stop marathon
The oldest one is fat and short,
And trudges slowly on.
The middle brother's tall and slim,
And keeps a steady pace.
The youngest runs just like the wind,
Speeding through the race.
"He's young in years, we let him run,"
The other brothers say
"'Cause though he's surely number one,
He's second, in a way."
How and who are the three Brothers

Eldest brother and twins take part in the marathon . The twin brother born last was leading the race. But scientifically the twin brother born first is the youngest. Hence the twin brother born last, though leading the race is second in a way.

Hard, Harder, and Hardest are brothers.
By age from youngest to oldest, it goes Hard, Harder, Hardest.
Hard is half the age of Hardest who is 20 which means hard is 10.
Harder has a two-year difference between the number of years older he is than Hard and the number of years younger he is than Hardest.
Harder is closer to the age of Hard than Hardest.
How old is Harder?

I'm something. I'm nothing.
I am short. I am tall.
When you fall at your sport, then I stumble and fall.
I have never been seen beneath a new moon.
I thrive in the evening but vanish at noon.
I am lighter than air, I weigh less than a breath;
darkness destroys me, and light is my death.
What am i?

My three brothers, my cousin and I are stood in a line.
I am the shortest of all my brothers and I am at one end of the line.
At the other end of the line is my cousin, who is the fattest out of all of us.
My tallest brother is in the middle of the line.
We cannot move away from where we stand and yet we are very flexible.
We are very useful; people would struggle without us.
What are we?
