Help

As usual, the website hints are more confusing and a hindrance. I believe i am not the only person who have provided such feedback - might as well don't give hints. The hints in this forum are much better.

I spent 2 hours on the 1st 10 puzzles and still solved 6 of them only.

Anybody care to nudge me in the right direction for this puzzle?

Re: Help

I'm stuck here too.
I do have some idea of what the numbers could refer to

Spoiler

From bottom to top:
24: hours
7: days
12: months
12: ??? Years ???

but I fail to see how the 'all', 'any' and such fits in and how that relates to a word.

You're working in the right direction.

Spoiler

Think of 'all' or 'any' as set operations.

Spoiler

'All of X' gives you a full set, whereas 'any' gives you an element. What do you get?

Extra hint:

Spoiler

It's an acrostic.

One of your words is not correct. And, yes, you then take a letter.

Re: Help

What's the point of them saying 'any' or 'all' or '2/4' if we just have to pick one letter? Isn't that the same as saying 'any' for all of them?

Based on the above clues, am I meant to take for example the 2nd & 4th letter of Days, so A and S. Also is Months the first answer or the second? I cant think of anything else related to time which has 12 sections
