Two women apply for a job. They are identical and have the same mother, father and birthday. The interviewer asks, "Are you twins?" to which they honestly reply, "No".

How is this possible?

it's possible when the mother gave birth to each child in different time zones

They are sisters born exactly 1 year apart, hence the same birthday.

Two men/women in absolutely identical conditions have two of the exact same water bottles (full of water).
An hour passes, and the temperatures of the water inside the bottles are measured.
The temperature of one of the bottles is noticeably higher than the temperature of the other.
Assuming that the temperature of the setting they were in, as they were both the same, had to do with the change in temperature of the water, why are they different?

Two children are born on the same day from the same mother but they are not twins. How is that possible?

Two people are traveling across the country. They both leave from the same city, and both have the same final destination. They also both leave at the exact same day and time. One travels by bus, and the other by aircraft. However, the bus passenger arrives before the passenger on the aircraft.

I was walking through the park the other day and I saw an old man sitting on a bench. He was accompanied by two young women keeping him entertained. Lucy and Maggie Fletcher were their names.
Now, there was something peculiar about these two women. They wore completely identical clothes in addition to looking alike in every other way. They were the same height, had the same eye color and the same cheekbones. They were indeed born on the same day and shared the same mother. Yet, they were not twins. How can that be?
