 ```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 ://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&lr=&q=+%22+have+OR+has+7+OR+seven+branches%22+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. markj-ga```
