    Place a hundred at each end, with a five in the middle, = C V C


    And a one on each side of the five: then will the riddle = C I V I C


    Solved be when you find (at least so says the ditty) = C I V I C


    “Pertaining to a citizen”, and also “to a city” = C I V I C


    Had to search for Roman Numirals …

    Also a popular compact car!


    Replace the second one with a Roman and
    you’ll have a small jungle cat.

    Oops. Catlike, but not a cat.

    The answer is CIVIC (roman numerals: C=100 ; V=5 ; I=1).

    CIVIC


    C = 100
    V = 5
    I = 1

    CIVIC
    The letters are also roman numerals.

    CIVIC – the numbers are Roman numbers.

    yes, a popular compact car- a CIVIC :)

    I just noticed that my attempt at being clever fell short. If you replace the “second one” (civIc) with a “Roman and” (ET), you don’t get “civet”, you get “civetc”. I should have said “if you replace the last 99″ (IC). Oh well.

    As I’m old enough to have used Roman numerals this was easy – CIVIC
