20 Questions was a popular radio programme. On this the contestants were given the following information:
1 How many words are on the card. The compere would often say something like "Two words including the indefinite article." This indicated that the card said "A something".
2 Whether the item was animal, vegetable or mineral.
The radio audience (but not the panel) would be given the answer by a mystery voice.
The panel then had a limit of 20 questions to find out what it was.

In later years the animal, vegetable or mineral options were expanded to include "abstract" which really opened up the game.
