I was wondering if commands can show up twice in a crontab-file e.g. 0 3 * * * deep-thought 0 4 * * * deep-thought and are they to be treated as the same for tallying.

Yes - nothing wrong with wishing to run the same command at multiple times throughout the month. Try it for yourself on the sample solution.

In the crontab file the month can take the value of 0-11 Is it possible that in the crontab file the month would be represented as "jan", "feb"... etc instead? Also, can the day of the week be an integer in the crontab file

Yes to both questions. The project description, under File Formats (for the crontab-file) states "The words for the month and the day of the week, may be 3-letter lowercase abbreviations of their possible values, such as jan, feb, mar... and sun, mon, tue..." And you can always test out these questions using the sample solution.
