A few things... 1. worker could be 'bee' 2. one who is released from prison could also be "free" 3. history of breeding could be "family tree" :-)

In a sense, yes. But the definitions given here should be all that is necessary to fully define the word, and worker does not fully define bee. Free is not an appropriate word for one who is released from prison, either, as the definition clearly calls for a noun and not an adjective. Finally, "family tree" is not a single word, so it doesn't fit.

I thought of "free", too, but I agree with tschutzer that it is clearly asking for a noun, not an adjective.

Haha... I also guessed "family tree" for "history of breeding." Though I knew it was probably wrong since, even though not specified here, usually these tests have single word answers.

Got them all, but possibly the description for "divorcée" should be "A woman who is no longer married", since the masculine form of the word is "divorcé".

Person who is released from prison is not wholly correct--as that person is free to do what he pleases (within the law of course), but a parolee is released early with conditions of release.

I agree, a very low percentage of people released from prison are 'Parolees' ... most are just free. I think Divorcee does not do the question justice, widows are no longer married, I think 'Woman that legally separates from marriage' is better.

I too put family tree even though I was fairly certain it was wrong. Never did come up w/ pedigree. Regarding the talk about parolee, that's the first thing I came up with. Just seemed like the right fit.

I kept reading it as "carbonated" instead of caffeinated, so missed it. As I sat here drinking my coffee (apparently not enough of it though haha).

Evacuee should be every bit as acceptable as refugee. Especially with natural disaster part of the clue. If you aren't going to take it, then remove natural disaster and/or mention that it's for an extended period or something about a legal status.

I think "captee" should work for prisoner.

Captee - One who has been captured; one who is held in captivity.

Captivity - The state or period of being imprisoned, confined, or enslaved.

Apogee is specific to orbits around the Earth (sometimes used for apoapsides in orbits of other planets) with the generic equivalent for that point in orbit being apoapsis. I liked the quiz, but I am an astronomy pedant.
