Well 0.04 x 100 = 4% .

In general population (unreleated people) the risk is 1%, but in that case the kids are brothers. They said dyzigotics twins risk is 4%. Remerber the definition of dyzigotics twins.

Sorry, I didn't see it. You only have to remember that dizygotic twins are not identical twins because the they comes from separate ovas that are fertilized by 2 differents spermatozoids, so they are like the kids in the example.
