Could we have two equal elements in one group, or every two elements must be different?

Considering a group is unnecessary here -- push it down to a set. No, as the definition of "set" goes, you can't have a certain set with essentially N distinct element but cardinality greater than N. That is, however, possible in a multiset though.
