I have been bowling for almost 20 years and I have not heard of a lot of these answers. What you look at when you bowl should also allow mark and aiming point. The tenth frame answer should also allow "strike out" . 4 strikes in a row is called a four bagger or 4 bagger not an albatross. A bowling alley is called a house not a lane or reworded to what you bowl on is called a what.

you should accept "open" for "open frame". four bagger didn't work and it should. and you should rephrase the "hook" question because i thought the answer you were looking for was "Brooklyn". a bowling ally is called a "house" not a "lane". and "spot" is a very vague answer.
