Are you good at recognizing initials?
A to Z With 24 In Between
All the letters
From Middle to
have been used to identify someone or something in as few letters as possible.
Try out this little quiz to see how you are doing at recognizing something or someone just by three initials: The answers are listed below all strung together so you are less likely to cheat by glancing down before making a valid try at testing your knowledge and your memory. Each set of initials is worth four points for a maximum of 100 points. See how you can do. Even if you do poorly, your minimum score is likely to be 40 points, few but the most observant (hint) will have a perfect score of 100.
While other answers might also be correct, these are the original author's answers in reverse order last to first: demaswjaspernewyorktimesleeharveyoswaldbritishbroadcastingcorporationrepublicofkoreanationalsecuritycouncilamericanfederationoflaborjamesearlcarternationalfootballleaguegeorgewalkerbushgeneralmotorscorporationamericanbroadcastingcorporationinternalrevenueservicerichardmillhousenixontransworldairlineslyndonbainesjohnsonmetropolitantransitauthoritydrugenforcementagencyhuberthoratiohumphreyfoodanddrugadministrationbarackhusseinobamahillaryrodhamclintonfederalbureauofinvestigationjohnfitzgeraldkennedyenvironmentalprotectionagency.
