Nine Question Quiz . . .

OK -- JEOPARDY EXPERT
THIS QUIZ IS FOR
MY VERY BRIGHT FRIENDS!
There are only nine questions.

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 landmark 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 marks in English grammar. Can you name at
least half of them?

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

the letter 'S.'

Fun quiz! I knew 6 1/3 answers so maybe I made it into the "passing score" column.

I knew 6 of the 9. Interestingly, three of them I knew from watching The West Wing. Well, 2 of them were from The West Wing. I knew about the strawberries prior. But, there was an episode where they were playing poker and the Pres Bartlett kept interrupting the game to ask trivia questions. He asked #4, 6 and 7
