Incorrect: I'm sure you know there are 100 pennies in a pound.

Yes, No, Maybe:

It depends on whether the the question refers to British pennies or American cents (almost always called pennies, too) and whether "pound" refers to a unit of weight or the monetary unit. Without knowing exactly what's being asked, it's not possible to give a specific answer.


Well, I take your point, and I know terms such as this are international... but I still feel the most likely meaning here would be units of British money. Really, the question should, if talking about units of weight in imperial measurement, say "how many pennies would weigh approximately 1lb?"
