I'm from Scratch. We're planning on building the Scratch Space Academy. Many of my friends, such as Bi, Tri, Quadri, Penta, joined us too. When we got to the site, suddenly, a worker asked me an awkward question.

What's your name?


I replied with this rebus.

|             |
|\           /|
| \         / |
|  \       /  |
|   \     /   | 
|    \   /    |
|     \ /     |
|      -      |
 -------------
|             |
|             |
|             |
|             |
|             |
|             |
|             |
 -------------

This is one of my names.

This is a rebus puzzle.

Solve it.

    $\begingroup$ The friends' names are in Latin, but the solution of the rebus is in Greek? (No idea if this is what OP means, just spitballing here.) $\endgroup$ – Bass Nov 11 at 8:43
  • $\begingroup$ @Bass The question says: "This is one of my names" $\endgroup$ – Scratch---Cat Nov 12 at 12:59

Is it

UNI

Like the answer above, but follows the pattern laid out in the riddle according to the names of your friends.

  • $\begingroup$ It could be that all of them are latin cardinal prefixes,but then the question is wrong, because it should be "du" instead of "bi" ?? $\endgroup$ – balazs.com Nov 11 at 18:02
