There was a task given to us. The person said and I quote "each day you all have to change the first letter of your name to the same thing, but it has to be different each day".
My take of this task was I can change the first letter to anything that it can be a word, Symbol anything. But others think this sentence states that it should be changed to one letter only.
Help me understand where I did I go wrong. As it says change it to same"thing".

Was there a "thing" mentioned before this? What same thing?

Tell us what was said before this.

In that case the instructions are pure nonsense.

each day you have to change the first letter of your name to the first letter of your name (which makes it the same name that you started with), but that letter has to be different each day

So if your name starts with T, you must replace it with a T that is not a T. Emotion: tongue tied

Good luck.

rohank05The person said and I quote "each day you all have to change the first letter of your name to the same thing, but it has to be different each day".

That could be a lot clearer, but it obviously means that the person was assigning a task to a group of people. They were to change the first letter of their name to some other letter at the beginning of each day, and everyone had to use the same new letter that day. I see a problem, though. If there are 26 of them, and their names already begin with every letter of the alphabet, somebody will not change letters that day.
