    I didn't take the II or III into consideration at all. Either the person had "Osbourne Smith" plus a "II" or "III" and got it right (because that is how it was captioned on the show), or they had a nickname, which was marked wrong.

    For example, you put "Osbourne Smith III" and got credit for the question.

    If people follow the old tradition when Blank Smith Sr. dies, Jr. or II drops the title and becomes just Blank Smith and Blank Smith III becomes Blank Smith II. I wonder if that's what is causing the confusion. Now people often ignore the rule. For instance, my dad is a Jr. and hasn't dropped it since his father died.

    ETA: If I'd been a boy, I would have been a III. I've always been glad I escaped that fate.
