MN reminds me of Minnesota. Does the puzzle have to do with the States?

initials of states.....
number of states with the initials
eg.
first group = no states with each initial
second group= one state with each initial
third group= two states with each initial
fourth group = three states with each
initial
fifth group = four states with each initial

North starts with N, so it's in the N group. South starts with S, so it's in the S group. smile12
