Q: Think of a pair of well-known Procol Harum songs with two-word titles, such that the first word in the title of Song A ends with the same pair of letters as the first word in the title of Song B – and also, the second word in the title of Song A ends with the same pair of letters as the second word in the title of Song B.
Example: if there were Procol songs entitled Wet Honeymoon and Bayonet Poison, they would qualify for this question, inasmuch as the first word of each title ends with 'et' and the second with 'on'.
However those aren't the titles of proper songs, let alone proper Procol Harum ones. The ones you're looking for are well-known, canonical items (list of titles here): one song contains the words ‘burning’ and ‘brighter’, the other contains the words ‘bones’ and ‘burst’.
Anyway ... consider carefully these three statements (not all true) about the two songs whose titles are referred to in the first paragraph above. :
A There are nineteen different letters in the combined
titles of the songs
B When you write down the two song titles, just six of the letters you use occur once only
C The two song-titles share a total of four letters altogether
Your letter of the day is either A or
B or C – select the one that corresponds to the true statement
