I think "The Sting" should also work for Police inducement to commit a crime.

A Sting is when you lie in wait to catch a criminal committing a crime. Entrapment is enticing a criminal to commit a crime. Example: Entrapment: A cop handing a kid a can of spray paint to a kid and telling them to spray a wall. When the kid does the cop arrests him for doing so. Sting: A cop sits in a car across the street from a pawn shop that he believes will get robbed that night. When the criminal shows up to rob it and does so the cop arrests the thug.

"The" never counts in these things but I get it. However, if you think back to "To Catch a Predator", that was a "sting" operation. While it could be entrapment, I still think sting works according to the clue...that's it.

Strongly disagree with the clue Apocalypse for Armageddon. The former is either an unveiling of information or a world-ending disaster/cataclysm (denotation vs. connotation), while the latter is a battle that will be fought, or the place the battle will be fought near the end of the world. At best, Armageddon is a part of an Apocalypse, but that's like saying bananas are fruit salad because they are contained therein.

Do you ever do one of these quizzes and come across a clue which makes you think "the answer the quizmaster is looking for is obvious, but the clue is not strictly speaking correct. I bet someone takes issue with it in the comments section"? Well....

Personally, I have no problem when people nitpick the answers. I take these quizzes to learn new things, not show off my intelligence (or lack thereof), and I appreciate it when people correct even minor mistakes. I hope it will keep me from making the same mistake in the future when the stakes might be more important.

There are a lot of clues here that are not perfect definitions but if I had to pick just one to nitpick over I'd definitely have gone with speed/velocity. Two completely different things. Just ask your Physics teacher. Moreso than Apocalypse/Armageddon which are often used interchangeably even if plats is technically right.

Speed and velocity aren't *totally* different things; speed is a component of velocity. To get velocity, all you need add is the direction.

Chef's and murderers aren't 'totally' different things, knifes are a component of stabbings, all you need is to add a victim?

I think most people can go along with Speed / Velocity (except the occasional pedant)...... but 'Jarhead' for Marine is probably unknown to all but US moviegoers, and 'Hitch' for trailer connection must be a local thing.

English is not my mother tongue and I'm not an expert on things like this, but could "Used to connect a trailer to a truck" also be Hook?

You could use hooks to connect virtually anything but a hitch is more specific.

The device is usually called a trailer hitch, Frodo. A simple hook wouldn't be very safe to pull a heavy trailer on the road.

Don't you hitch a trailer to a vehicle? (it's an action) You don't use a hitch to connect a trailer to the vehicle - that's a tow bar & tow ball. I'm from NZ and didn't find any definition of hitch to match the clue - is it slang in other countries for the equipment used to connect a trailer to the vehicle?

In the US we call them trailer hitches. The hitch might include a ball or pin but the whole device is called a trailer hitch.
