1. An absurdity.

10. A form of paper currency used by British forces occupying Germany after
the Second World War (British Armed Forces Token) and discontinued in favor
of the Deutsche Mark in 1959.

I find 7 and 10 most convincing:

> 7. 1. The stern of a ship. 2. The tail of an airplane.


> 10. A form of paper currency used by British forces occupying Germany after the Second World War (British Armed Forces Token) and discontinued in favor of the Deutsche Mark in 1959.
