Clarification needed. More likely than what? - More likely that the twin will have twins than that the twin will have single children?

that means they are not identical twins they are fraternal they each got different genes

1- P(identical) - P(fraternal) =1-0.004-0.023 =0.973 The probability of being a identical or fraternal twin plus the probability of not being a twin has to add to 1. so 1- probability of being twins=probability of not being a twin ;-)

P(twin)=P(identical)+P(fraternal) P(twin)=0.004 +0.023 P(twin)=0.027 [That's 27 out of 1,000 cases, or 54 persons out of 1027.]

"Frat brats" belong to a fraternal organization. A sorority is for girls, a fraternity is for boys. Is his relationship fraternal? Fratricide is the word that describes the murder of a fraternal sibling.

The probability is the same as if you had no history of twins in your family. There is no genetic component with identical twins, it is just something that happens. Fraternal twins occur if a mother "drops" two eggs in one month. Your father being a fraternal twin does not make you "drop" more than one egg in a month and so does not increase your chances of having twins. Your maternal grandfather being a fraternal twin did not effect your mother's ability to drop more than one egg and so did not effect your ability to "drop" more than one egg and so does not increase your ability to have twins.

If You Are A Twin (Or Have Twins In Your Family): If you are a fraternal twin, you have a 1 in 17 Chance of having twins. If you are identical, it doesn't affect your chances, and they remain from 1 in anywhere from 38 - 90, depending on if fertility drugs are used or not. If your mother is a fraternal twin, you may have a higher than average chance of twins. If you father is a twin, it doesn't affect your chances, as fraternal twinning is apparently carried down the maternal line. If your husband is a twin or has twins in his family, it doesn't affect your chances of having twins. If you have a parent that is an identical twin, your chances of having twins yourself are the same as anyone else.

Fraternal twins can occur when the mother's ovaries release two eggs at the same time instead of one. If the eggs are fertilized, then fraternal twin embryos will develop.

Two different males father fraternal twins. Google superfecundation.

Although the term is commonly used to refer to an organization which consists mainly of men, it has a broader meaning when it comes to biology. In biology, Embryos derived from two separate fertilized ova are "fraternal"; "fraternal twins" are two twin brother or two twin sisters or twin sister and brother derived from two separate ova fertilized at approximately the same time and thus gestated at the same time. Can we then talk of FRATERNAL LOVE to the affection between SISTERS?

If 1 identical twin has it, the odds are higher than regular siblings that the other twin will get it. If 1 fraternal twin has diabetes, the odds are the same as if any of their siblings have it. But no, if one twin has it, that doesn't necessarily mean both do.

No. Not any more similar than non twin siblings.

Identical twins, or in-fraternal twins, are the offspring that look exactly alike and are of the same gender, sharing the same exact genetic information. In-fraternal twins occur when a fertilized ovum (egg) has divided and each went on to become an embryo containing exact same genetic information.
