Expert Answer:

  • Sometimes, two eggs are released from the ovaries at a time and both may get fertilised by two different sperms. Such twins are dizygotic and not identical.
  • Sometimes, a single fertilised egg may split during the early stages of cell division. Such twins are monozygotic and are identical.
  • Therefore, twins may or may not be identical.
