couldn't you still say that
AB are twins
AC are twins
and
BC are twins?
ABC are triplets, but separate, AB can still be considered twins, right? maybe not, i'm just saying.

your logic is correct but that becomes a completely different argument. but yea, definately not likely to be born at the exact same time, same day and year with same mother is enough, the time element falsifies the question.

Maybe one of them had a very noticable mole on her face? I dont think that would make them any less of twins though... haha.

If one child passes away, are they still called "triplets", or would you then refer to them as "twins"? I think two of the children could still be referred to as twins even if they part of a triplet set.

couple of things... I guess I am reading into this too far

1. can't be born at same time

2. no mention of human or not

3. a little farther out there - no mention of demensions

sorry spent some time on this and settled on # 2 (thought was a dog)

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.


Reply
It does say in the same month
Two girls are born to the same mother, on the same day, at the same time, in the same month and year and yet they're not twins. How can this be?
Sorry to blow up your thought
