12 is a very very low average score imo, especially since most of these can be just guessed by thinking logically (not the president and name for male bees for and brando and the eye one, but you can work out (nearly) all the others)
like there arent many countries that needs two dashes. And what animal has a single horn that looks like the horn of a narwhal. What fruit is often said in one breath with lemons etc.
On the other hand, when it asked where the "tusk" (not the "horn") is believed to have come from, I first tried elephants, so not so straight forward. And with the fan question, I didn't realize it was asking for a country. I tried "urban myths", even "psycho analysis". Couldn't think of anything else.
