OK.For a change , let's have a letter sequence instead of a number sequence.

Find The missing letter:

B B R O _ G B V G W

This should be an easy one but which can provide resistance to your thoughts.

OK. I will post a hint as there have been no replies so far.
The answer can be found without using the hint.So try first and then view it , as the hint may give away too much.

The answer is Y for Yellow The risistor color code goes like this:

Black =0
Brown =1
Red =2
Orange =3
Yellow =4
Green =5
Blue =6
Violet =7
Grey =8
White =9

How could this be! I have spent the whole morning over this and different colours was the only thing that struct me as a possible solution, but all I was wondering was which sequence (there are three B's, two G's ) Didn't know about this resistor colour coding at all...

I looked up the Periodic table, the ten provinces of Canada, Presidents of US, to mention a few, besides colours...

Do you know the verse that is a memory aid for these initial letters?

It is the color coding of resistors...So it should be Yellow...Y
