I get the answer of 'all of them' but is it really correct?

If I ask how many eggs are in a dozen, and you say 8 or 9 or 1 then none of those answers are correct. If I ask how many days are there in November and you say 28, then that is not correct.

The question wasn't "how many days are there" it was "how many days have". It's very true to say they all have 28 days. It's misleading, but not false.

That's just semantics and still follows my logic. If I ask how many days does November have? And you say 28 or 3, then those are not correct answers.

well but if you say there are 9 eggs in a dozen that could be left to human interpretation but if you were to say an inequality there are at least 9 eggs in a dozen but at max 12 eggs you could write it e=amount of eggs 8<e<12 so when talking about the months in general from the minimum maximumday you could write it d=amount of day minimum maximum 28<d<31
