I thought the answer to this one was 1 cuz there only born once.

And #3 in second set of riddles is ten.
Correct, #2 is just 1 time.

But there aren't 10 candles, there are 12. There are 6 burning candles in front of Jack, and six more burning candles in front of Jenny. Just because Jack blows 2 of them out, that doesn't effect the "number of candles" that are there, like it asked.
