Place two identical widgets in the same sidebar

can I put in the same sidebar widget two equal? Let me explain: I use a plugin called WP Category Post Widget List, which lists the posts filtered by category to which they belong. It Is useful to me because if I want to see in the sidebar only news category posts, I can do it very easily.
My requirement is to insert an instance of the plugin to view, for example, news, and below, in the same area of the sidebar plugin, another instance of the same plugin to list other posts by another category, such as products. ..
is there a way to do this?

it depends on the plugin/widget. Some widgets will allow you to use multiple copies of the widget, others only allow one copy.

You can just try it and see what happens (best way to learn). If it doesn't work and you really need two copies, then you should contact the author of the widget/plugin

Try the Plugin "BNS Featured Category"

you can use it as often as you want - also in the same sidebar and it works quite good

Hope that helps
