    1) X is a peculiar word. It itself is an example of an X. Originally meaning a
    suitcase, it now has a meaning in no way apparently related to suitcases,
    but the development of its meaning over the ages, explains its current
    meaning. As like all English words, this too has been borrowed from a
    European language. Its meaning in that language has changed over the
    years, from cloak-carrier to false friend. Give us X.

    2) X is an album by bestselling artist Y. Originally Y went through several
    names before zeroing in on X. They had named it Evolution, but
    another album (by another artist) with the same name was due to be
    released. They then decided to use a plant metaphor Z to show how far
    they have come. They decided it was a little too reflective, and decided to
    name a "Best of Y" album as Z. (Z has not come out however). The name
    X, which could be considered as indicating a swansong, caused quite a
    speculation. Two of the band members were actively involved in their
    solo careers. However, X was an acronym, and was expanded to a phrase
    indicating the dance-party nature of the album. Ironically, Y's next
    album W, meant the opposite of X. The album X has spanned many
    number one singles. Infact, Y is one of the few artists to have one of
    their singles replacing another of their own at first spot on The U.S
    Billboard Hot 100. X (in full) and Y please.

    Pls help me with the answer asap.

    Thanks in advance

    The first one:portmanteau: a case or bag to carry clothing while traveling, especially a leather trunk or suitcase that opens into two halves. The literal French meaning is “cloak carrier” A more recent use of the word in linguistics is to define a blend, a word made by putting together parts of other words, as dandle, made from dance and handle.

    port·man·teau (pôrt-mnt, prt-, pôrtmn-t, prt-)
    n. pl. port·man·teaus or port·man·teaux (-tz, -tz)
    A large leather suitcase that opens into two hinged compartments.

    The Second one:
    Let it be by The Beatles. followed by Get back, though never recorded together and is a compilation.
    Hmm..its a guess.
