  2. All of Benís children were twins except for 41 of them.
  3. All of Benís children were triplets except for 41 of them.
  4. All of Benís children were quadruplets except for 41 of them.

*** Counting triplets as twins or, quadruplets as triplets is not permissible.

Ady, If I read your solution correctly, then you haven't satisfied statements 3 or 4.  With the 43 children you define, you have 43 that are not triplets nor quadruplets?
