    You are supposed to look at the answer to item #59 and figure out what two units in that answer mean.

    What was the question/answer for question #59?

    There’s also the question what kind of crossword it was: the variety of English could actually affect the reading very drastically in this case.

    for example this
    across
    18 ) two units, in 56 -Across.
    23) three units, in 56-Across.
    56) four units, in 56-Across

    the solution is
    18) patrol boat
    23) submarine
    56) battle ship

    This is a reference to the boardgame Battleship. The different sized boats take up a different number of unit squares on the game's grid. The "battleship" is a four-unit piece in the game.
