Again spelling. Bleh. In Finnish "J" is pronounced like the English pronounce "Y" at the start of word and way too often I forget to try a Y. I knew that tree.

Shouldn't question 4 be "British PRONUNCIATION of letter Z"? I can only think of one way to SPELL the letter "Z" - it's "Z"!!!

Unless you're British in which case it's spelled z-e-d. Which was the whole point of the question, I suspect!

Agreed the British spelling of Z is funny enough... Z! the pronunciation of Z however in British is ZED instead of the American ZEE. Really need to change the question!

No, many letters do have accepted spellings, and zee/zed is one of them. Aitch is another. By the way, zed is also the most often used pronunciation (and spelling) in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and a number of other countries, not just Britain.

No it is not the pronunciation that is asked here, but the spelling, not for the letter z, but the word representing that symbol.

You wouldnt call "e i g h t" the pronunciation of 8 either would you, and you certainly wouldnt say you spell it "8" The word is pronounced in several ways (even within just the english languages) but the pronunciation would be similar to "eit"

8 is the symbol, eit is the pronunciation and e i g h t is the spelling of the word the symbol represents.

Is the question "you make this when the sun shines" from a poem or a song or something? Otherwise in my opinion it is a bad question. (Well it might still be if the nursery rhyme is only known in one country) There is so many things associated with sunshine, and hay is definitely not the first you think of.

cocktails would be better haha, but cant think of a 3 letter one ;)

According to the 'net it's a medieval English one. I had to look it up because I thought it was from the Bible. My childhood Sunday School teacher just phoned and said I must return my gold star for memory verses.

Only thing I could think about was "tan", but I realised that for this answer it should be DO in the question, not MAKE...

In german "machen" (make) is often used instead of "tuen" (do)

what does "Cinco menos cuatro" mean. I think it means 4:45 or a quarter to 5. How do you get 1 or Uno?

Cinco menos cuarto is 4:45

Very easy to confuse cuatro (4) and cuarto (quarter)

"Make hay while the Sun shines" is a common expression, though. One could do lots of things in the Sun, but only that fits the format of the question

In Australia and NZ (and many other places I suspect), grog refers to any alcoholic beverage. I do concede that grog is an old term which referred to watered down rum, so perhaps the question should be “was used in the past”
