#18 Brain teaser

This is a number-and-word game in which all non-trivial words are represented only by their first letter. Your job is to complete the phrases. For instance, the answer to "24 H in a D" is "24 hours in a day".

  1. 30 M in a H H
  2. 90 D in a Q
  3. 3 A in a T
  4. 14 L in a S
  5. 366 D in a L Y
  6. 7 U N in an O
  7. 8 P in the S S
  8. 10 D in a C
  9. 5 T on a F
  10. 9 M in a H P


This is a "best of" puzzle, meaning the player(s) with the most correct answers wins, similar to an open solution puzzle.
