  • $\begingroup$ yup! pretty easy one, but it wasn't a sequence I recognized off the top of my head so I thought i'd put it out there. $\endgroup$ – DLeh Jun 22 '15 at 20:27

    $\begingroup$ what about 'Y'? BC+10+NO+10 = Y $\endgroup$ – Saurabh Prajapati Jun 23 '15 at 8:22

    $\begingroup$ @DLeh It could also be Z as the distance between C & N are 10 characters so skip 10 characters after O and you will get the leter Z $\endgroup$ – Adit Kirtani May 29 '16 at 4:40
