Help with acronym-ish puzzles!?

Okay, I'm admitting I have to resort to seeking help from others.
I'm doing this for-fun "intelligence test" for one of my courses on-line and it involves figuring out a bunch of acronym-type puzzles. Because it had one that involved American info. I'm seeking help from any American brainiacs out there (although others may help too!)

Here goes:

first an example: 9 L of a C ...... 9 lives of a cat
many of them have some type of time/measurement connection, but one was 13 S on the U S F which I figured out to be 13 stripes on the United States flag, so some are just "expressions" and the like as well.

15 M on a D M C ...... anyone figure this out?

1000 Y in a M......

9 P in S A.......

23 P of C in the HB.......

64 S on a C B......

There are more, but I'll start with these.... if anyone knows 'em, I'm closer to being scored a "genius"

Oooh, you're good! I tried #2 as exactly that and it didn't turn green--indicating it was correct (it stayed red)!
I KNEW #4 had something to do with the Human Body but couldn't figure out what P of C was!!
Great work on # 5!!
I'll be returning with more.....

I've tried it several times and spelling is one thing I'm good at....
there's gotta be some trick to it....
