2000 and 2001 are both in the 21st century. It would work if you used 1999 and 2000 though.

actually, 2000 is still in the 20th century and 2001 is in the 21st century. (centuries start with XXX1, because the 1st century started with 1 A.D, not 0 A.D.)

in regards to the trick, i thought it was a classic! nicee. =]

Isn't it amazing to know about this answer, and yet it would be given away if one explains the answer in the comment section?

Maybe Harry was the twin brother of Suzy and Frank was the twin brother of Mary. They are both twin brothers but not of each other.
