I Lettered at State

Sandy Wood

Okay, I didn't really earn a letter at State. I lettered in high school, but only in journalism (and I think debate). The coaches wouldn't let me play sports after the eighth grade, when I broke my arm in two places and sprained my wrist while bulldogging during football practice. (If you don't know what that is, well, suffice to say that it's a great way to break an arm.) Anyhoo, here's today's Brain Game Think Thursday challenge, a throwback which I wrote about four years go. Good luck:

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 (A, C, H, I, L, N, O, R, S, T, and U)

Thanks for playing! Tomorrow,it's Free-for-All Friday!
