they took an egg from her and cloned her at the same time the clone was pregnant so ... when she gave birth, the clone was also allowed out of the growing vat and thus "born"

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


Sorry, Todaysdiscountdeals (yesterdays inflated price perhaps, actually you are not blowing anyone's "thought" but your own and only showing your lack of proofreading abilities! If you look carefully you will see that rookie1ja clearly acknowledges pranavojha's point and states that the question has been amended in light of pranavojha's comment!!! So pranavojha's was spot-on

Riddle amended - "months" added.


Perhaps in future you should think before you leap in with both feet to find fault with others!!! Just a thought?

Twins - Back to the Logic Puzzles
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?


Spoiler for Solution



It is conceiveable that this could happen and the babies be born at exactly the "same time" without the trick trip up of it being triplets or quads or cat/dog or whatever.

If say two eggs were fertilised (or one fertilised egg split into two) and one egg became absorbed and part of the internal body of the other embryo, then it is possible that a baby would be born with another baby within it and these would be born to the same mother, on the same day at the same time in the same month and year and yet not be classed as "twins".

This has happened in reality but obviously the absorbed baby is no longer a living entity!

See this link for an example of such a case: <!-- m --><a href="http://www.metacafe.com/watch/82927/baby_inside_a_man/" target="_blank">http://www.metacafe.com/watch/82927/baby_inside_a_man/</a><!-- m -->

I know its a long shot but obviously there has to be some type of answer so here is my solution: The second child is adopted... The birth mother was giving birth to one child while the other was giving birth "same time" also it would be said the the child was born to the same mother. Even though it would be a very very very very rare and meraculous coincedence it is possible!

The women was impregnated by two different men. Thus the babies have different DNA and are not scientifically speaking twins. For those who may doubt this is possible look up the term superfecundation.

I was just thinking about what someone said about that twins cannot be born at the same time.
I'm not sure about this, but what if they were conjoined?
Two were conjoined, and the third was born regularly, making two born at the same time.
I don't know much about conjoined birth, so I could be wrong.

Most of these answers are implausible and unlikely. Asuming that the woman and her children are HUMAN (This is most likely because most riddles are not about animals), that she was not impregnanted by two men (And even then they would still be considered twins, as they were born at the same time, by the same person, regardless of the father), that this is in normal circumstances, no different dimensions or otherwise, that the answer that rookie1ja is correct, and as he has said the answer, that IS the answer (although, yes, there may be others), that the two children are two children of a set of triplets.

(Although another very minor mistake, is that you forgot to put the week. If you did not intend to put week, than that could be another answer indeed. They could both be born on Monday, in June, in 2007, by the same woman. But there are more Mondays in June than just one, correct?)

I agree that 2 girls that are out of a set of triplets could be considered twins. One set of triplets makes 3 sets of twins.
