Never heard of that use for G. Is that an American thing?

Jun 26, 2020
Short for grand which is used also in UK, but the short firm seems to be mostly US.

Yeah, I missed that one too. I ran out of time, but definitely more an American thing. Never heard it used in Britain.

I'm surprised, I'd say I hear G used a lot in the UK myself.

Yeah, I've definitely seen K used for $1000 but not G.

I certainly hear K more than G, but I think K isn’t as associated with street lingo.

G has been used in the UK for a long time, well before K became more common.

German Metro rail can either be U-bahn (underground) or S-Bahn (above ground)
+2
Level 76
Jun 28, 2020
The S-Bahn is not a metro, it is a suburban network. Only the U-Bahn is a rapid transport network.
+1
Level 53
Nov 10, 2020
No, the S-Bahn at least in Berlin goes right through the city centre in three different routes. It is suburban as well, but so is the U-Bahn. The Wikipedia page begins "The Berlin S-Bahn is a rapid transit railway system..."

But my understanding of "Metro" is specifically an underground railway.

Maybe it's my academic background speaking, but R is also a very popular programming language...
+1
Level 56
Jul 8, 2020
Yeah I'd not heard of C, but at my work we all use R.

Speaking of which I should probably get back to it...

Level 77
Jul 8, 2020
'C' came out in the 1970s and is far more widely used as a generic programming language than 'R' which I think is aimed more at statistical and graphics computing.

MPAA rating for films suitable for ages 17 and up is X.

R is if there is a parent with you.

+1
Level 72
Jul 8, 2020
X no longer exists under the MPAA ratings.

Rated R: Restricted – Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.

Rated NC-17: Adults Only – No one 17 and under admitted.

"X" hasn't been used as an MPAA rating for more than 30 years. It wasn't copyrighted, so anyone could use it and it became heavily associated with pornographic movies, so in 1990 the MPAA replaced it with the copyrighted NC-17 rating.

It never clicked what the 9/5 C + 32 question was about. I guess I've never needed to know before because we don't use F in Australia. Though it would have been much easier if you'd used the correct unit for Celsius (°C). Without the degree sign, C is coulombs.

good point, the degree sign would really help

Took me a second too. East/West vs South/North. I was guessing relative position in the alphabet and on the keyboard.
+1
Level 22
Jul 11, 2020
Yeah, I struggled with that one too. I assumed it was the position in the alphabet (so what comes 18 letters after S) and ended up trying every letter in the alphabet before getting to N

R is also a programming language that is pretty widely used. Granted, it has a more specific use than C, but still fits the clue pretty well, and is of course a valid answer for this quiz.

Level 75
Jul 9, 2020
Maybe I am just being nitpicky, but two of these answers should be displayed with the lower case letter, given the context of the clue. The musical term, and the number approx equal to 2.718 should always be indicated with the lower case letter, so the answer looks strange when it comes up with the capital letter.

Why was my comment deleted? All I said was I ran a bit short on time and than I usually see and hear "k" being used for 1000,-. But so did others and all their comments are still up. I didn't say anything weird or rude.

Or maybe you did delete all the comments about K/G and these are all new ones. (though I don't think the june 26 are new). Still wouldn't see why you'd do that.

I feel like K should be accepted for G, I've heard it much more often and it seems like a lot of other people here think the same thing

I started by spamming the down arrow key and spamming A until one of the answers was correct. Then I did for B, then the rest of the alphabet. Easy 5 points.

Surely such a smart person such as yourself, who is familiar with R, would also know that the obvious answer is C.

This quiz inspired me to create two A-Z quizzes where each answer is comprised of one letter and one number, such as:

Audi's 4-door luxury sedan = A8

At first the quizzes were pretty tough, but I expanded the hints and hopefully they're easier now. I'd appreciate it if you'd check them out:
