Unfortunately, yes. Here's another one from the same quiz:
M, V, E, M, J, S, U, and the answer is N, for Neptune, because the letters stand for the names of the planets. But as for E, D, M, H, ? I don't have a clue!

The answer was "K". Something to do with Scrabble letter values.

just for clarification for those that still don't know
E = 1, d = 2, m = 3, h= 4 and k = 5

the numbers are consecutive 1,2,3,4 and 1 is the value of E, 2 is the value of D, 3 is the value of M and 4 is the value of H in the game of scrabble. the next number after 4 is 5 so you need to find a tile to the value of 5 and it happens to be K, therefore K is the next letter. Any clearer?

What's confusing is why pick E for the value of 1. Why not A? I think there may be some other sequence as well.
