This is a very easy puzzle when the reasoning clicks:

What are the next three letters in the pattern "OTTFFSS"?

So what are they?


This is the first hint


1 Answer 1


Next letters are:

ENT (it's even a word!)

How come?

The letters are the initials of numbers in the English language (One, Two, Three...)

    $\begingroup$ @HexagonalImpossibilities I'm afraid this one is a classic and has been asked here before - see the duplicate I've linked above... $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @HexagonalImpossibilities It's fine :) I'd suggest doing a quick search of some of your keywords or terms in the 'Search on Puzzling...' box at the top of the page before posting one-liners or short riddles. The site's been open for several years now and a lot of 'quickies' of this style have already been posted in some form. In time you'll get a feel for what's likely already been done before. Chin up! :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I do that every time in that "similar questions" thingie below the title (scrolling down all the way)- I really do not know how you guys find duplicates so fast. Thanks for your advice anyway! $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 22, 2022 at 9:16
