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


Triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, sextuplets, septuplets, octuplets, it does not matter; where I am from, baby are not born the same time.

However, i can see it happening in America where you people have to chase after the sun. I love this country; America is great.

Ok, I check your answer and it was not what I was thinking; however, i think it would be possible if they were triplets that were born in fall just when we turn our clock back an hour.

Example:
One girl was born on November 4, 2007; 11:45pm
At midnight, we turn our clock back one hour.
The other girl was born one hour later also November 4, 2007; 11:45pm

Both girls were born November 4, 2007 11:45pm.

the woman could not become pregnant on her own, so she went to a doner and had twins by two different men!

yea they could be 2 of 3 but then they wouldn't be born at the same time... if they were born at the same time there could be 2 mothers (identical twins- not technically the same person but exact same dna) both having daughters at the exact same time

The use of the phrase 'same time' is ambigous because it can imply an approximation (i.e within 10 minutes of eachother) or and exact point of reference (10.59 AM EST and 37 seconds).

Since the other pieces of information, mother, month, year, are exact points of reference, I would assume that "the same time" would be as well.

Therefore it would be impossible to deliver, even by C-Section, two babies at the same time. The riddle still works if you state the same mother, day, month, and year. I realize this is getting into the details, but in my opinion the riddles are more effective that way.

PS... I love this site, I keep refreshing my igoogle page every few minutes to update my riddles.... productivity has decreased...

They can have different fathers... ;)
