I'm not sure where you draw the line for "major" auto makers. Wiesmann falls after Volvo in the alphabet. Also, technically the car division of Volvo was sold to Geely Automotive (China) and are manufactured by them. Between 1999 and 2010 it was Ford who manufactured Volvo Cars. Technically at this point Volvo is purely a name and not an automaker. Volvo as an automaker is technically named AB Volvo, and only produces commercial vehicles - trucks, buses, and construction equipment. It really has no place as an answer to an automaker question. There are two manufacturers that produce Volvos, AB Volvo, and Geely. Wiesmann or Volkswagen should be the answer.

"Major" kind of falls into the category of "common." Zongying is a common girl's name in China.

Is a major company one that produces 1 million cars, or 200,000 cars? Volvo only produced about 230,000 vehicles under their AB Volvo name. All heavy duty trucks & buses. I wouldn't say that's common. Volvo is common but incorrectly so for this question. Volvo doesn't make cars, it is just a brand made by Geely. Just Volvo is not an automaker. I'd say Volkswagen would be the easiest answer to use. It's major and common (about 9.25 million vehicles produced).

Volvo are owned by Geely holding not Geely Motorcars, production of Volvo vehicles still remains in Sweden in the same plant buy the same people under title of Volvo car group. Jaguar Land Rover are owned by Tata and are a subsidiary or Tata Motors - are they no longer an automotive brand?

I don't consider zero a whole number. I'm not sure what the mathematics community believes, but to me, zero is the absense of a number in the same way that white is the absence of color (pigment).

Zero is a whole number. There is controversy about counting it as a natural number, but no mathematician doubts that it is a whole number.

@lizzie djee is right, 0 is doubtlessly a whole number but might not be a natural (since it has not negative counterpart)

you are correct Lizziegirl, there has been controversy over the inclusion of zero as a whole number for some time. The argument against is that it holds no value and is effectively a place holder.

I don't know exactly when it was added, but I know for sure it was a word in 2006, so I wouldn't say recently. And frankly, I've never once gotten the opportunity/reason to play the word anyway.

Of course Zoey is a common name. I'm sure I've seen it spelt "Zoe" far more often (and my browser's spell check agrees with me). The clue says common to differentiate it from names English speakers would consider foreign or made up. People these days will make up anything and call it a name. You could name your child Zzumulda.
