Twins - Back to the Logic Puzzles
Two girls are born to the same mother, on the same day, at the same time (Edit: of course, not both at once - one right after the other - you know what I mean ;) ), in the same month and year and yet they're not twins. How can this be?

This old topic is locked since it was answered many times. You can check solution in the Spoiler below.

Can't we say that that the two babies were born in different months of the same year (like one born in Jan, the other in Dec) as the question doesn't specify anything about the months.

I'm going to have to be a stickler here... Unless a C-section happened, this is impossible. Two people cannot be born at the exact same time from the same mother. I happen to know triplets, and they are all about 8 minutes apart. Just being picky, I know.

They could also not be human-- if they were puppies for example, you wouldn't consider them twins. Not as elegant as the actual solution, but it's still a solution.
