Two quick riddles to start your day with

Since yesterdays question stumped you all, just two simple questions today:

1) What state is surrounded by the most water?
2) How many letters are there in the alphabet?


  1. #1

    Depends on definitions. Hawaii has 100% of its border surrounded by water, so you could say it has the most water. But Alaska has the longest actual coastline, in terms of raw distance.


    There are 26 letters in the alphabet, but just 11 in "the alphabet".

  2. I would have said Hawaii, but you make a good point about Alaska, Andrew. Most people will think only of the mainland and say Maine, Florida, or California.

    There are 11 letters in "the alphabet".

  3. Hawaii does have the most water between its borders and any other land mass though. So again, it depends on your exact meaing.
