(a) Who is younger, Tom or Jane?
(b) Who is junior, Tom or Jane?

Can you say (a) and (b) interchangeably?

No - use A.
B, while understandable, is slightly strange and could be confusing.

Thanks for the help. One of my students wrote B. I didn't think I had seen or hear the sentence, but
I was not sure whether it is used or not.
