This is a quiz for people who know everything! I found out in a hurry
that I didn't. These are not trick questions. They are straight
questions with straight answers.



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

2. What famous North American land mark is constantly moving backward?

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?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

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?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ' dw' and
they are all common words. Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation mark s in English grammar. Can you name at
least half of them?

8. Name the only veget! able or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned,
processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

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


Answers to quiz are below.






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 land mark 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.)

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several
growing seasons . . Asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside .. . Strawberry.

5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the
bottle. (The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and
are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the
entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at
the stems.)

6. Three English words beginning with dw Dwarf, dwell and dwindle.

7. Fourteen punctuation mark s in English grammar . Period, comma,
colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark , exclamation
point, quotation mark s, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.

8. The only vegetable or fruit never sold frozen, canned, processed,
cooked, or in any other form but fresh Lettuce.

9. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with 'S'
Shoes, socks, sandals, sneakers, slippers, skis, skates, snowshoes,
stockings, stilts.

The answer I missed was boxing. Boxing never entered my little head for an instant; it was totally off my radar.

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

Yes, Boxing got me also. Jonni missed that one and Niagra Falls. I had to really think about the Falls.

Maxi also missed Boxing and Niagra. I was surprised he knew so much about fruits and vegetables, to tell you the truth!
