No, these aren't those annoying problems that math teachers like to give in middle school. These puzzles are based around words and language use.
Difficulty: 3 of 5 Latest: Best quotient
I've initiated (for you to improve and to complete) a list of 26 pairs of English words (the shortest and the longest for each letter - both beginning and ending with said letter):

a. a, abracadabra ..........1 ...11
b. bib, breadcrumb..........3.... 10
c. chic, cinematographic.. 4 ... 15
d. ...........................
...........................
...........................
...........................
...........................
y. yay, youthfully ............ 3 ...10
z. zizz,zizz...................... 4 .....4

In the above example the sum of numbers in the 1st column is 15
and in the 2nd 50.
My quotient is therefore 50/15=3.333

Evaluate the quotient of your list.

Team work will definitely create optimal result.
