itsalphaandomega --

I am confident that the answer to your quiz question is that "7 b on a
m" stands for "7 branches on a menorah."

Here is a link to a Google search that returns several hundred results
that support that conclusion:

"have OR has 7 OR seven branches" menorah

Search Strategy:

I used a "brute force" strategy that involved scanning the "B" section
of my dictionary for promising nouns (it really only took a few
minutes).  I then devised search terms that I could quickly use to go
down the list of 20+ such nouns to find the right one:

"have OR has 7 OR seven [enter the plural of the "B" noun here]"

I really think this is your answer, but if you have reason to doubt
it, please ask for clarification before rating the answer.
