I'm curious if the adequate nutrition was provided to siblings would their height be the same or within -+1 inches. My brother is currently around 6 foot 2 inches while I'm 5'11. He's 20 roughly while I'm 16. It seemed he grew late, so do you think the same will apply to me and I'll reach 6'2 - 6'3?

Nah. I'm shorter than my sibling too.

Perhaps a questionnaire and Spearman's rank correlation coefficient might help

No... there is random variation. A pretty good guide is that you are exactly half your adult height at age 2 (honest).
