Here's the riddle in advance. If I got the above riddle correct, answer this, if not then scratch what's below.

Timmy and Tammy were born on the same day, same year, same month. They hopped out of their mother's womb two minutes apart. Yet the were not twins, why is that?
Either:
a)They are from different mothers (the grammar of the sentence would disprove this) or,
b)They have different fathers.
I dearly hope the answer isn't b...

There is a bomb that you must defuse. In order to defuse it, you must pour exactly 4 gallons of on it. However, all you have is unlimited water, a 3 gallon jug, and a 5 gallon jug. The jugs aren't labeled like measuring cups or anything, so it's not like you can just pour it to exactly 4 in the 5 gal jug. How do you pour exactly 4 gallons onto the bomb to defuse it?
This one has several steps in the answer. The very end result should be 4 gallons in the 5 gallon jug. I was told this riddle in 4th grade by my Enrichment teacher(Enrichment we learned philosophy, psychology, mythology, and we did brainteasers/riddles like this one) and it took me like three whole days to get it... I was in fourth grade don't judge me. :lol:
