But you've left out the rest of the sentence, and the rest of the paragraph, therefore your solution doesn't make sense.

Here's what's said:

Quote:
There are three words in the English language that end in "gry." "Angry" and "hungry" are two. What's the third?
So the statement is that there are "three words in the English language that end in 'gry.'" Not "there are three words in 'the English language.'" And the question being asked refers to the three words that end in "gry"--"Angry" and "hungry" are two. What's the third?

Unless I'm having a major brain fart (and that's ENTIRELY possible!), it just doesn't make sense.
