Try to Solve these 5 Riddles about Twins; Answers follow at the bottom.
Riddle #1: There are two brothers who are twins and born on the same day. One day a man asks them their age. One of them says, “I am twenty” and the other twin says, “I am twenty-two”. How is this possible?
Riddle #2: Two girls were 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.
Riddle #3: Suppose there are twin brothers, one which always tells the truth and one which always lies. (So, in this case, they both know what is true and false, or as you put it, both are accurate in their knowledge.) What one yes-no question could you ask either one of the brothers to figure out which one he is?
Riddle #4: A lady has twins that are born in different years and different months. How did she do it?
Riddle #5: Two girls have the same parents and were born at the same hour of the same day of the same month but they are not twins. How can this be possible?
Answer for Riddle #1: He is “twenty-two” as in “20 too”, as in twenty as well.
Answer for Riddle #2: They are part of a set of triplets.
Answer for Riddle #3: The question one could ask is, “If I were to ask your brother whether you always tell the truth, what would he say?” A reply of “no” means you are talking to the truth teller, a reply of “yes” means you are talking to the liar. Another possible question is, “If I were to ask you whether you always tell the truth, what would you say?” In this case a reply of “yes” means you are talking to the truth teller and a reply of “no” means you are talking to the liar. Both questions take advantage of the liar lying about what he or his brother would say, creating a double negative type situation.
Answer for Riddle #4: One was born on December 31,
and the other was born on January 1.
Answer for Riddle #5: They were not born in the same year.
