I know the answer is phylum, but what about branch? Is it a synonym or is it more general in english? (In french, we usually say "embranchement" for that level, but sometimes phylum as well)

Of course, we in the south would say "All Y'all's" should count as a possessive pronoun. :)

I think Albania could be dropped from the Warsaw Pact answer. They withdrew and became hostile to the USSR sometime in the Sixties and spent less time in the Pact than they did out of it during the existence of the Pact. Or reword the question to "Original Members of the Warsaw Pact."

Why specify yellow cake? Not only did I at first try uranium because I thought it was going to be a trick question, but also to make a cake yellow you would need to include some food coloring, otherwise it would be a white cake.

That's what the vanilla does.

level 81
Feb 25, 2019
Vanilla does not colour things yellow. Real vanilla adds tiny black spots, but does not colour. Vanilla flavoured things are often either coloured yellow or as in ice cream from real ingredients, egg yolks and rich cream provides some yellow to it. Common misconception.

I thought it was the eggs that made it yellow.

It is the whole eggs including yolks. White cake uses only egg whites.

Yeah, I totally spaced because standard white / yellow cake has only 7 ingredients. Butter cake has butter.

My, your, her, our and their are all possessive pronouns.
+3
level 58
Sep 29, 2014
Those aren't pronouns. Pronouns are used in place of a noun, mostly to avoid repetition. My, your, or her would all have to be followed by a noun in order to make sense. Mine, yours, or hers all replace the noun. Example: Her phone is white, mine is black. Phone is the noun, mine replaces "my phone".

Those are possessive adjectives, not possessive pronouns. I made the same mistake at first.

Water should be included as a cake ingredient. Also, Russia should be accepted for the Soviet Union.

While Russia was part of the USSR, "Russia" is not synonymous w/the entire USSR.

baking soda for baking powder?
+4
level 59
Aug 6, 2016
Those are not the same. Baking soda is much stronger, and it's a base. Baking powder is an acid.
+4
level 75
Jan 15, 2018
Baking is a science. As already stated above, baking powder is a combination of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate). Baking soda requires an acid for the proper chemical leavening reaction, which cream of tartar provides. If one used only baking soda one would have to add additional acid - cream of tartar, lemon juice, etc. There are a few cake recipes which call for baking soda, including sour cream pound cake, but in that one the sour cream provides the acid instead of cream of tartar. The standard yellow cake recipe calls for baking powder.

I thought "Taxonomic" meant money classes. I tried billionaire.... duh, me.

level 54
Dec 10, 2018
I wasnt sure exactly what it meant either. I did know it had something to do with classifying of the living kingdom. So instead of saying the term order, class families, etc I tried the major groups. so divison of plants, animals etc. When that didnt take, I went to the next division, like birds, fish. Now I see what they mean I would ve gotten most. Havent heard of phylum though (maybe I know it in my own language) And pretty sure I wouldnt have thought of domain.

Great quiz. Could do with a bit more time though as a few of those categories are quite tricky. Also is there not a 'cruiser' weight in boxing? As well as 'light-welter weight' etc? I'm not a boxing fan so happy to be corrected.

They did not teach "domain" when I was in High School. I think it was proposed in 1990, it hadn't hit the school books by the time I graduated. Now I know.

Well, there is a difference between yellowcake and yellow cake (which QM has asked for). So he is making the cake quite correctly.

I think if "one's" is accepted as a possessive pronoun, then so should be "nobody's". Which means that entire list would have to move to the Groups of Nine Quiz. :)
