    Lightbulb Quiz for people who know everything!

    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.



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










    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.)



    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 marks in English grammar: Period, comma, colon,
    semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe,question mark, exclamation point,
    quotation mark, 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.

    Very good points James and you would have discovered that magic would have gotten very few right at all. My sincere apologies Jessica as on quick reflection that was a very insensitive thing to do and once again I am truly sorry.

    next time you'll have to rephrase the questions Jessica so people can't just Google the answer so easily.
