    30. 20 = Y that R V W S

    31. 3 = P for a F G in F

    32. 32 = D F at which W F

    33. 29 = D in F in a L Y

    34. 11 = P on a F T

    36. 3 = B M (S H T R)

    37. 56 = S of the D of I

    38. 2 = T D (and a P in a P T)

    i probably would not have gotten 47. i don't recall where that's from. i should have known number 45 though. in fact, that's the first thing i thought of. the "N" threw me off more than i thought it would, it's usually referred to as "mark" where i'm from

    Good job, Chris, AMI and Jhevon!

    I'm delighted that you enjoyed the quiz.


    #47 is "1001 Arabian Nights", a collection of stories.

    The story goes that the Persian king, Shahryar, disovered his wife's infidelity,
    executed her, and declared all women evil. He then married a succession of
    virgins, only to execute them the next day. Soon the vizier could find no more
    virgins in the kingdom. Finally, his daughter, Scheherazade, volunteered to
    be the next bride and her father reluctantly agreed.

    On their wedding night, Scheherazade told a story that so intrigued the Shah
    that he postponed her execution so he could hear the conclusion of the story.
    She continued a series of fascinating stories for 1001 nights. At the end, the
    Shah was so grateful that he forgave her (and all women) and spared her.


    Chris, on #29 I assume you meant 13 Stripes on the American Flag.


    Here are the two missing answers . . .

    42. 76 = T L the B P
    Spoiler:

    44. 500 = S of P in a R

    Post Another quiz

    Same idea on this one, but I can't get some of them. Especially 3, 4, 5, and 11.

    1. 3=B.M. (S.H.T.R.)
    2. 2=H. on a C.
    3. 88=C. in O.
    4. 1=E. on a C.
    5. 9=R. in the B.G.C.
    6. 1500=D. to S.O. in M.
    7. 21=N. to get in B.J.
    8. 7=C. of the W.
    9. 24=T.Z. in the W.
    10. 7=C. of the R.
    11. 30=S. in the D.J.I.A.
    12. 1440= M. in a D.
