## Question

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.

Try to remember the basics of electronics

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...

Tman55: Congrats , you got it right .

sunrise: Sorry, but Tman55 got it .

Maybe I should not have given that hint.

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

I just checked out the responses about the resistor color code. I was going for the order of crayons in a box

Thanks , bononova.I did not know that.It will help me in remembering the colour code easily from now on .

And if I remember right such a verse is called a mnemonic.

Hey! that is really innovative.But at the same time it could be hard to guess.
