If anyone thought this quiz was too easy, I made one that is significantly more challenging. You can find it under my quizzes titled "Very Tricky Analogies." Feel free to comment on it, as I never get on anyone's case for expressing their opinions. Holding someone accountable for their opinions... or expressing a different contrary opinion... that's obviously different.

Finally got 20/20. Remembered "penultimate" from the A Series of Unfortunate Events" series. The 11th book was "The Penultimate Peril" and I remember Lemony Snicket defining penultimate as being next to last. Hahaha

I'm surprised that more people get penultimate than nectar. Does that mean A Series of Unfortunate Events is more popular than Percy Jackson?

I read one of the ASoUE books with my girlfriend's 8 year old daughter once and found it very well-written and enjoyable (much moreso than Harry Potter or Percy Jackson)... but I knew the definition of penultimate long before that. Penultimate is a word that can be used in a lot of different situations whereas ambrosia is specifically in the domain of a particular mythology. I imagine that's why fewer people know it.

Anyone else try "bega" for billions? No? Just me? Alrighty.
+1
level 78
Nov 12, 2014
No, but I did try Tera which is billion on the metric long scale. Also, In my opinion, a scene would be more like a page than a chapter. An act would be analogous to a chapter.

The ads are well-known in the US. Originally the gecko spoke with a very proper British accent, then another actor gave him an Australian accent, and a later one had him speaking in a Cockney accent. Regardless, he was always extremely polite and soft-spoken, very much the opposite of the Geico Hump-Day camel.

If you've ever heard that phrase "15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance," then that's Geico.

I get what you're going for with the library and the bank, and it's pretty obvious what the answer is, but I don't think they're really the same thing. Cause you know, you can't exactly check out all the money you want from a bank with a membership to the bank.

I got almost all of them including Giga, which is the least gotten answer. All you have to think about is this 8 bits = byte 1,000 = kilobyte 1,000,000 = megabyte 1,000,000,000 = gigabyte

I INSTANTLY THOUGHT OF GECKO for Geico, but I never tried to type that as I thought it was improbable for an answer, and proceeded to type nearly every other animal I could think of.........
