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?


Spoiler for Solution



Pretty simple actually. They are not twins because they were born in different months.

Solution 1: They were triplets (containing atleast 2 girls) AND it was daylight savings time.

Solution 2: The mother in the question is a "grandmother" and its a pair of sisters giving birth.

NOT IMPOSSIBLE. EX:
Mother flying from Georgia to L.A. Gives birth to 1st child on a set of twins over Atlanta. While having complications for the second child of the set of twins, birth is given to it EXACTLY one hour later, in the CENTRAL time zone..... those twins are born at exactly the same time......

yes, that could be true, the mother could have had two uteruses (which is medically realistic) but even then, those two babies can still be considered twins, just fraternal twins..

Why not quadruplets or more?
I am going with two different fathers as a woman can have two eggs in her uterus at once and have each fertalized by a different man heck they could have fertalized them outside the woumb and implanted them together.
Got to love modern Science!
