I believe the correct answer should be 1000 years in a millennium.

I think the first question should have been 9 L___ of (as opposed to 'in'ðŸ˜‰ a C___.

The answer is 9 Lives of a Cat.

The last questions is quite unfair, because it is open to arguments.

2 Hydrogen (atoms) and 1 Oxygen (atom) (together makes a) Water (molecule).

It's a question that requires too many blanks to be filled, but without the question-setter providing those blanks to start with!

The 6th question is OK I guess:

5 Fingers on a Hand

(Although I have seen people with 6 fingers on a hand)

Question 7 is quite interesting: 50 S ____ in A ____. (There is no 'a' after the word 'in'ðŸ˜‰. It suggests a proper noun. And what's more, that proper noun is not usually preceeded by an 'a'. Therefore the answer is:

50 States in America.

Question 5 is a bit strange. 26 L ___ in a A ___. The blank after that capital letter A suggests that it is a word starting with an 'A', e.g. Apple. Therefore the word before that should have been 'an' instead of 'a'. At least that's how the correct English should be. Can you confirm this, witty?
