My other half has been driving me mad (what's new!) her friend has found a puzzle that she got most of the answers to but not the following and after all of us wracking our brains we can't get the ones below. Don't know if anyone here has their brains in gear because we don't seem to with ours. Can you fill in the missing answers please? Appreciate your help if you can.

EXAMPLE: 13 B D (would be 13 Bakers Dozen) 3 PC (would be 3 primary colours) and M O T S in 687 D (would be mars orbits the sun in 687 days

these are the rest...... good luck! (Thumb)

Hi Brian, my wife and I used to spend hours leafing through Chambers Book of Facts ( 150,000 facts ), looking for the numbers. These appear to be a new set of problems. See what I can find ....
