Multiple questions in this one. Tough one.

The "winner" of this will be the person who gets all 4 correct, and will receive 4 points. No partial points will be given.

1) Of those numbers whose English representation in capital letters consists only of straight lines, only one number has a value equal to the number of straight line segments required to write it out. What number is this?

2) What word is pronounced differently when the first letter is capitalized? (Hint: there are least 4 possible answers)

3) Punctuate the following so it makes sense:

"That that is is that that is not is not is not that it it is."

4) What word begins with 'h', ends with 'n', contains six letters, and contains eight words besides itself without transposing a single letter?

Score Now is:

LFODNH...........3
Strats..............2
Brouhaha.........1
Leelaw..............1

Now either this was too easy or you found the site I took these from. My others are coming out of a book I own, but I flew to Montreal today and the book is in my suitcase, so I "stole" from the internet.

So, which was it...EASY or you found the site?

It depends on how you write your "Y" and "I", but here's what I found:

TWENTY NINE
2+4+4+3+2+3 + 3+1+3+4 = 29



2) What word is pronounced differently when the first letter is capitalized? (Hint: there are least 4 possible answers)



polish (Polish)



3) Punctuate the following so it makes sense:

"That that is is that that is not is not is not that it it is."



That that is, is; that that is not, is not. Is not that it? It is.



4) What word begins with 'h', ends with 'n', contains six letters, and contains eight words besides itself without transposing a single letter?
