Use these clues to find whose favorite sport is basketball.
Andrew and Kenesha are twins.
The oldest of the friends plays baseball every morning.
Dan goes to the pool every morning in the summer.
Kenesha is a great goalie.

Kenesha is one of the eight year old twins and she plays soccer. Dan is nine and he is a swimmer. Betty is ten and she plays baseball. Andrew is the other eight year old twin and basketball is his favorite sport.

I believe Andrew plays basketball. Here is what I got:
Betty plays baseball
Kenesha plays soccer
Dan plays Baseball + swimming
So that leaves Andrew.

First I read all of the clues in order.
I found that Andrew and Kenesha can’t be the oldest because they are twins, so they are both 8.
Dan can’t be the person who plays basketball because he goes to the pool every day in the summer, so swimming is his favorite.
Kenesha is a great goalie so her sport is soccer – she is not it.
That leaves Betty and Andrew. And since Andrew is 8, Betty must be the oldest and plays baseball.
That leaves Andrew to like BASKETBALL!
