: I can't see how one or more of these statments can be true:-18 C (0 F),54 C (-65 F),-48 C (-55 F), 10F or -12C.

The only error seems to be that is should be -54 C (-65 F) not +54, probably a typo.

Boiling pt of water 212 F = 100 C
Freezing pt of water 32 F = 0 C

The formula is F = 1.8 C + 32

by which:
-18 C = -0.4 F
-54 C = -65.2 F
-48 C = -54.4 F
-12 C = 10.4 F

So the numbers quoted ignoring the missing - are all reasonable roundings of the conversion from Centigrade to Fahrenheit.
