1Boatnut,

Number 2 answer is not correct.

02. How many states are there? (Don't laugh, some people don't know.

Your answer: 02. 50 (please tell me you at least got this one!)

Not all 50 are States, four are commonwealths;

Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Virginia.

I was never told that the stars represented only States, could it be that they could represent States and Commonwealths.
Don't mind me it's Friday afternoon and it's too cold to take the boat out.

05. Q, Z
Looking at my phone on the desk the letters "Q" and "Z" are on the 7 and 9 keys.
Unless you're talking about an old fashioned rotary dial phone.
