In crossword puzzle I find sometimes like this " two units, in 59-across", what does it mean?
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.
This is true; British and American crosswords are very different.
thanks ...but what does it means " unit"?
We won’t know until we know what #59 is.
for example this
18 ) two units, in 56 -Across.
23) three units, in 56-Across.
56) four units, in 56-Across
the solution is
18) patrol boat
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.
Separate names with a comma.
