The thought the first one was outrageous, until I saw the second one. So much pride, celebration and publicity for a phoren return? There is even a co-brother, whatever that is!

From what I understand, that's his sister's husband.

IF we are talking Cars, then the answer is "R". that is the 'reverse gear'. The numbers are placed precisely as on a gear of a car.

Co-brother is a very South-India specific word. However, the usage is so well prevalent out here that even Collins Dictionary notes this usage as

"since, wife's brother is brother-in-law, to avoid all confusion regarding relation, sister-in-law's husband can be called co-brother. In fact, this term is being used in India, mostly among English speaking South Indians."

Meaningless to VW drivers as well. R, for us is to the left of 1, with a push down. I have no idea if that is true for all models: I've only driven three or four VWs over twenty years or so.
