Brain Game: I Lettered at State


Okay, I didn't really earn a letter at State. I lettered in high school, but only in journalism. The coaches wouldn't let me play football after the eighth grade, when I broke my arm in two places and sprained my wrist while bulldogging. (If you don't know what that is, well, suffice to say that it's a great way to break an arm.) Anyhoo...

"Ohio" is spelled using three different letters of the alphabet (H, I, and O) while "Indiana" uses four (A, D, I, and N). The name of which U.S. state is spelled using ELEVEN different letters of the alphabet?

HERE is the answer.


South Carolina.  It uses the letters A, C, H, I, L, N, O, R, S, T, and U. No other state requires as many different letters. (New Hampshire only uses 10.)
