I thought I guessed chlorophyll... must have spelled it wrong. Still did well. Etymology always was interesting to me.

Anyone missing Brontosaurus was never 4. Also? Average score 9 is just embarrassing.

it took me a while to remember Brontosaurus. I think I tried dinosaur first.. which means terrible lizard, I think? Then tyrannosaurus even though I knew that was wrong (tyrant lizard). Then I got brontosaurus. But I probably learned that when I was five or six not four.

I find it hard to believe that nearly 90% of the people who've taken this quiz somehow managed to skip directly from age 3 to age 5. Perhaps there could be some other explanation...

Maybe that they weren't obsessed with dinosaurs? Girls exist too, you know.

What was your case? Can you rest a case that has not yet been established?

Apparently, it was a case full of mostly-Greek (and some Latin) rooted words. Sure, go ahead and rest it. Just don't leave it unattended for too long, or it may have to be treated as a capsabombus.

OBJECTION! Your Honor, this is ridiculous. The prosecution has not even given a viable statement. This is hearsay and does not belong in court, and is irrelevant to this case, which the prosecutor, sadly, has not found it necessary to establish. If they have no charges, the defense must be innocent, and therefore this gathering is moot. Your Honor, I rest my case, which, as it must be noted, is as established as can be under the circumstances.

Cool quiz. Harder than I expected, going from English to Greek/Latin. 18/21. Never heard of a pseudopod btw.
