Now you are testing my memory of Grimm tales. But to be honest, it is hard for me to translate all in english. So would you be so kind to answer, whether the tale in question is listed on this page:
Grimm Tales
It is not there, but you don't need to think a lot, it is one of the best known stories and there are many cartoons and movies about it.

I have no clue. Every Grimm tale I know I see on that list. Nevermind. I try to come up with some better questions the next days.

Not sure that these are Grimms', but just found a web-site that claimed them as theirs ...

Beauty and the Beast?
Goldilocks And The Three Bears?
Sleeping Beauty?
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs?
The Three Little Pigs?
The Wise Little Girl?

... or if not, is it one of the 210 listed on

Certainly the Brothers Grimm included "Snow White" in their collection of Kinder- und Hausmärchen [Children's and Household Tales] and it appears as number 53 in the list provided by Dietmar (though it is there called "Little Snow White, or Sneewittchen"). They did not write it, any more than they wrote most of the tales in their collection; versions of the story have existed in Europe from Ireland in the west to Turkey in the east for centuries.

OK. So is the answer "Snow White"? or something associated with Snow White?

So it is associated(ish) with all of them, but not one of them. Would the association hold for all dwarves, or just these seven? Anything to do with mining? Any connection to the abduction of young ladies and forcing them into a life of domestic servitude?

Seven?

(BTW, what is this acronym Svv about?)

Seven? Yes! I really thought this would be easier.

(BTW, what is this acronym Svv about?) "For svv of something" means it could be true if you consider some wider meaning of "something".

Back to the Air^$poiler, then ...

Is it a fair summary to say that "Air" indicates a noun which is some kind of vent which could be found on an automobile and is manufactured (though could be natural)?

Exporing the automobile line ... would it be considered part of the structure of the automobile? Or something added? Do all automobiles have one? Do all automobiles have more than one? How many? What is the greatest number that one automobile could have?

Could it also be found elsewhere? In a building? In some buildings? In all buildings?

Approximately how many of these would there be in Beijing?

Exporing the automobile line ... would it be considered part of the structure of the automobile? Yes. Or something added? Do all automobiles have one? Do all automobiles have more than one? Yes. How many? 5 in the most cases. What is the greatest number that one automobile could have? I'm not sure, depends on the size of an automobile.

Could it also be found elsewhere? Yes. In a building? In some buildings? In all buildings? Yes.

Approximately how many of these would there be in Beijing? Few hudreds milions or even milliards.
