    You only need to hide the answer to the question. 1. was not a question (this will become clearer as we progress).

    Cern is not right. Think of synonyms for cylinder and colloquial use.

    New Providence, Iowa is not correct. You only need to hide the answer to the question, by the way.

    No, that is not correct.

    It is not in the US.

    Even bigger clue, I use this 'cylinder' to get to work.

    Correct.

    There is only one question to answer. Neither London or Suez can be the answer to that question.
