    Grey is used in Great Britain and areas that use UK English.

    Yep, grey. Definitely grey.

    Grey.

    Huh, I live in the US and use grey. Does that mean I'm weird?

    As that is not an option, might one assume that you are dyslexic? ;)

    You mean colour?

    Like in the sentence "The aluminium is the colour grey"

    I was taught that grey was a blend of black and white, and that they are tones, not colour.

    In fact, they represent the absence of colour.

    So :p.

    Hahaha. This post makes it clear who the winner is. Awesome.

    I'd say aluminum is silver and not gray/grey.

    I don't think there really is an option for Americans or Brits either.

    Alas, you are correct. Of course, black is the lack of colour in the additive colour system (RGB) and white is the lack of colour in the subtractive colour system (CYM). At least, I think that's right.

    The issue is not altogether black and white...or is it? Grey.
