    If these are binary choices, then 'n' for 'coin'; 'i' for 'rip'.
    Not sure about the first one. I'd call it a trolley.

    The second pic refers to the word nickel, and the third one refers to the word rip, but I don't know the first one. It's a trolley, does it have another name with an ending consonant p or n?
    Thank you!
