    Will Shortz started making these word puzzles in 1981.

    I will be doing a bunch of them, and they will get harder as time goes on.

    How you solve them:

    ex. 26 L. in the A.

    Turns into: 26 letters in the alphabet.

    1. 50 S. in the U.
    2. 365 D. in a Y.
    3. 20,000 L. under the S.
    4. 5280 F. in a M.
    5. 24 H in a D.
    6. 52 W. in a Y.
    7. 99 B. of B. on the W.
    8. 29 D. in F. in a L. Y.
    9. 7 W. of the W.
    10. 54 C. in a D.(With J's)

    Good luck everyone!
