Not twins?

Two girls are born to the same mother, on the same day, at the same time, in the same year and yet they're not twins. How can this be?


  1. If I make the assumption that 'day' is not the same as 'date' then the mother could have two children in one year, both on a Monday, but 9 months apart. This is also known as 'Irish Twins".

  2. Mr Don, I'm afraid you've run off on a tangent I wasn't expecting. Day and date should be considered the same in this question.

  3. Are they two out of three, triplets?

  4. ah, brilliant, tamara. that has to be it. they could also be quadruplets, quintiplets, etc...

  5. Tamara, you got it right. They are two of three (or four, or five, or ...)
