The Alphabetical Questions

Another quiz from Rory, A Guy Called Bloke

Alphabetical Questions

Can you answer these questions and then can you make a 9 lettered word/s by using the first letter of each answer?

Now l know there are 26 questions, so there are lots of first letters from the answers here, there should be plenty of words you can make with 9 letters.

Here is an example …

Q – What does a dermatologist study?

A – Skin

So the first letter of the word Skin = S 

So what am l actually looking for?

Well that’s down to you – you can make a post should you wish displaying both the answers to the questions and your 9 letter word/s [If you can make more than one], or alternatively you can simply pop your answers into the comments section below.

Now to many this might sound easy, however as the games progress over the next few weeks, you might not receive 26 questions, but less and then the fun will begin.

  1. Well done Sadje – excellent work – well done also for the word creation of Trashcans = 9 letters
    Only a few mishaps – but none of them great in so far as affecting the overall lettering, when l display the answers later you’ll see, but otherwise a totally fantastic job 🙂
