QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 144

There are several words in the English language that are meant to denote indeterminate numbers, but actually used to mean very specific amounts. I am giving you a few words today. Without googling, tell me the exact amount they denote:

1. Gross

2. Score

3. Myriad

However, if you do google, put in a word of appreciation for this question if you like it. Because clearly, you didn’t know that these were actual quantities!

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life,folks!

PS: Take a look at my article blog. I will have uploaded a couple more of my recent articles by the time you see them!


Only Siddharth aka life is a romance and Sunny Lyngdoh got it all correct.

1. Gross = a dozen of dozens = 12 X 12 = 144. (Yes, its the number of the post)

2. Score = 20.

3. Myriad = 10,000. (Old Greek denomination. See here)


  1. Gross 144

    Score 20

    Myriad idk :P

  2. guessing:
    gross - 144
    score - 20
    myriad - 1000

  3. 1. Gross - Fifty
    2. Score - Twenty.
    3. Myriad - Half

    The second I know is right, the rest are guesses.

  4. Without googling, I know, Gross is 144 and Score is 20. Didn't know that Myriad represented a number too.

  5. gross - 144
    score - 20
    myriad - don't know

  6. one zero less in that guess on myriad, actually


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
