Answers To Quiz:



1. The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends: Boxing.

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward: Niagara Falls . The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends. In most sports, you don't know the "final" score until the end. My guess would have been golf though.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward? Didn't know.

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables? Didn't know.

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside? Too easy.

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle? I would have said something stupid like....they made the bottle around the pear.

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them. Dwarf......that's all I could think of.....it's early.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them? who uses punctuation firefox does it for me

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh. Wifey said lettuce.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter 'S.'

Socks, shoes, slippers, sandals, sneakers.......
