Mental Floss 202

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: Nautious Maximus was born on the 314th day of year 20B.C. and died on the 271st day of year 20A.D. How old was he when he died?

A: Nautious Maximus was 38 years old. This is because day 314 comes after day 271, and also there is no year 0 in the calendar.

This week’s challenge is:

Q: What four-letter word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right? 

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.
