Enjoy today's Think Thursday mentalfloss.com Brain Game, a classic puzzle we first offered back in 2010:

What letter of the alphabet appears
in the names of 11 different U.S. states
but not a single U.S. state capital?

THE ANSWER:

The letter "W."

Although it appears in the name of our national capital (Washington) it does not appear in the name of any state capital. Thanks for playing!
