Everyone even twins have different genotypes. You could still be in the same environment and the changes will still occur.
The answer is B.

they are having dissimilar
genotype because the dissimilar genotype
may come from the mother or father which
was not specified .And it was not told
whether they stayed in different
environment.
  • Gaby: The answer is D).they are raised in different
    environment.
    Because identical twins develop from a
    single fertilized egg, they have the same
    genome. So any differences between twins
    are due to their environments, not genetics.
    Recent studies have shown that many
    environmentally induced differences are
    reflected in the epigenome.
    As identical twins get older they may look
    more and more different, because they are
    exposed to more diverse environments. The
    science of epigenetics explains how these
    environmental influences can affect the
    genes.

As a result of the environment, chemicals called “epigenetic marks” attach to the chromosomes and can turn specific genes on or off. So identical twins with identical DNA may have different genes turned on, causing them to look and act differently, and even to develop different diseases such as cancer.

SO THE ANSWER IS
D.they are raised in different environment?
