    Default Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    "Oh, do we know for sure who is the older and who is the younger of the two?" (Referring to two brothers)

    Thanks in advance.

    I could be simplified as follows 'Oh, do we know who is the older of the two'. If there are two, and one is older then we can conclude that the other, by virtue, is younger.
