Can anyone explain what the last sequence means? I get that the first one is days of the week and the second one is Roman numerals but I can't figure out what the last one is.

Damn... Had no idea whatsoever of that one... Reminds me of a story my friend once told. He had been deputing the teacher for first graders (they are seven years old here in Finland). In the math book there was question "how is this sequence continued: 2, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22...?"

He had no clue. Said to the class "this is difficult, does anyone know?" Every single kid raised his/her hand. "Umppphhh... Well, you Tony, could you come and do it on the blackboard and explain so we can see if you have concluded correctly?" (The old teacher trick, you know.) The kid came and wrote "...23, 24, 25..." reading out loud. And my friend cursed silently "how could I be so dumb". The thing is that all these numbers start with a "k" when spelled in Finnish...

Me too, @Koopa, when I say the letters of the alphabet in Spanish.

However, at least in the Latin American countries I have lived in and visited, the “v” in “vaca”, for example, is pronounced as a “b”.

Level 68
Jul 20, 2022
I think it means when it is part of a word, the "v" is pronounced like our "b"
+6
Level 89
Jul 20, 2022
To be honest, it's usually a hybrid B/V sound. Many native English speakers just shortcut to what they're comfortable with and thereby have a telltale accent to a native Spanish speaker.

The "v" sound does not "officially" exist in Spanish, neither in Latin America nor Spain. Both "b" and "v" are pronounced as a "b". It's a case of hypercorrection: Some people might ponounce it as "v" because they think that's how it should sound, but it's use is very rare.
+1
Level 76

Spanish native here. The B sound is overall much softer than in english. The differences in pronunciation lie not so much in the letters (B or V) but in their placement within a word. Like Isle said, it's more of a hybrid.

G’day from Queensland, @blizzrd33. I agree with you. The Kiwis pronounce “z” as “zed” too, as do Indians, Nigerians and English speakers from British Commonwealth countries all over the globe, I’d warrant. (Canadians may be the exception. I’m not sure how they pronounce it.)

It's "Zed" here in Canada.

Canadians vary in that pronunciation. Zee fits better in the alphabet song anyway, and many Canadians I know say zee.

In Jetpunk quizzes any English language spelling, pronunciation, word, expression that isn't used in the US just gets termed British, regardless of how widespread it is beyond US borders. There's really no point fighting it.

This is a silly complaint that is not supported by this quiz. The clue is accurate; it doesn't claim or imply that the ONLY people who say Z that way are British.

W is also sometimes (rarely) a vowel. Look up cwm and crwth.
+3
Level 68
Mar 10, 2023
I mean, sure, but the quiz is clearly talking about English unless otherwise specified (see the days of the week and gerund questions), and it's not as if "cwm" or (especially) "cwrth" are common loan words in English.

It most certainly is not a vowel in that word nor in any other word. Please check the definition of what a vowel actually is.
+1
Level 77
Apr 27, 2024
The w in town only makes a vowel sound because it's combined with the vowel o. To be considered a vowel, a letter has to be able to make a vowel sound on its own, as in cat, bet, kit, tot, nut, or fly.

I thought the Spanish question would be the other way round, so they write B, and say V? Like in Zack and Cody, one character's name was Esteban, but they pronounced it like Estevan.

The most common ending letter in the periodic table of elements is not M, its actually E with 6 elements ending in M and 9 ending in E

Feb 8, 2024
Not sure what version of the periodic table you're using, but by my count there are 83 elements that end in m, more than twice that of all the other letters combined. E doesn't even come in a distant second, that honor going to n with 15. E is down at third with 7, not 9.

Maybe @TheZoneman was thinking of the symbols on the periodic table not the elements' English names (e.g. helium ends with 'm', but its symbol ends with 'e') : that matches with their m = 6 (though I get different numbers for e and for the most common letter).

Not just British people who pronounce Z that way (like "zed", rhyming with "red"). Most people around that world pronounce it (or grew up pronuncing) it that way too. It's just Americans that say "zee" and some people use it now too even if they grew up learning "zed" (having learnt British English in their education system, which is majority of countries where English is taught at school/as an official language.)

Where does it say that only British people say it that way? You might as well complain about a question like "Pele was famous for playing this sport" because lots of other people have also been famous for playing football/soccer.
