Tried various spellings for "divinity" and "diluvium" (which i thought was more correct than deluge, specially considering that the period before the Flood is called antediluvian). Surprised those weren't acceptable. Opposite of "international" is national, domestic, even though it may be used in that context, stems from "domus" which is the latin name for "house." Domestic is therefor more appropriate to refer to indoors habitation. I'd consider changing that hint.

Your knowledge of latin roots should then tell you that "deluge" stems from the same root as "diluvium" and antediluvian means "before the flood." Ergo, the english word that the quizmaster was searching for was clearly 'deluge.' As for Domestic...come on man...did you get it right or what? The clue is good enough for 73% of quiz takers to get right.

Is domestic violence the opposite of international violence? Is a domestic partnership the opposite of an international partnership? I agree that this is a poor clue, even though it is understandable and people will probably get it.
