    It would have to be an altered Fibonacci sequence though, like:

    a(0) = 1
    a(1) = 1
    a(n) = [a(n-1) + a(n-2)] mod 26

    That's just a matter of a group homomorphism. More seriously, for your sequence and mine the 8th term would be 'u' and not 'v'

    Wat is wrong with my answer a=1 b=2 c=3 and so on?
    please explain how i am wrong

    well, i think you missed to write the 3 of c=3.
    v had to be 21.
    for the fibonaccis.
    But it is the 22nd (!) letter
