    Without looking...
    can you identify the two-word phrase
    appearing below the Lincoln Memorial
    on the back of a U.S. five dollar bill?

    That's easy.

    Weird, that's why my example says. And below that is "Five Dollars"

    Five Dollars is correct.

    Nope.
    Seems to say LINCOLN MEMORIAL on the images I have.

    Is it a trick question? Has the bill been recently updated?

    LINCOLN MEMORIAL is a title, not a phrase.

    It is as much of a "phrase" as Five Dollars!
    "Title" has no meaning in grammar so to compare the two is meaningless.

    OK ... re-write English grammar.
    Good luck.

    You question HandAndy's grammar? 😲

    As for the 5 dollar bill don't have a clue what is on either side, rare as a Canadian I even see one!
