C. Emily's sister gave birth to two twins.

Explanation:

A redundancy is when you say something two times in the same sentence, using different words that express the same, form example in the sentence, it says that Emily´s sister gave birht to two twins, when you are saying that she gave birth to twins you already know that there were two of them, you don´t need to say two twins, that´s a redundancy.

D) It was his usual custom to wash his hands before each meal.

When one is redundant, one basically says the same thing twice or says something that is unnecessary.  For instance, it would be redundant to say “wet water” because water, by its nature is wet.  Thus, when we look at Option D, the redundancy it contains is “usual custom.”  This is redundant because an act that is customary, or is a custom, is so because of its usual practice.  

It was his usual custom to wash his hands before each meal.
