As a science teacher, I'm going to be a little nit picky. Your picture of a beaker is a picture of a flask and of a test tube, not a beaker in sight.

Ha, you're right. Since there are no good pictures of actual beakers I changed the answer to Bedouin.

picture 1; I was adamant it was blonde for a while. picture 8; bark (amusingly straight after the composer of similar name). picture 10; blade. It's funny what your brain thinks of straight away when seeing a picture

I didnt get what the previous person meant that it was funny if bark came after bach. When reading your similar comment I thought the same. I thought what do you mean similar name... it both starts with a b, yes..?

But I suppose you pronounce bach weirdly so that it sound like bark? That thought hadnt even crossed my mind and before your comment and just based on the previous mention, I would have never figured it out..

I'm good with learning the correct answer of Bedouin, but can anyone point out how it is visually distinctly different from a Berber?

There are actually many different people called bedouin... and not all berber are exactly the same, either... but I'll make an attempt.
The thick black cord that looks like a rope spiraled around his crown, that's called an egal (spellings vary), and it is an accessory worn on the head mostly by proper Arabs (those on the Arabian peninsula, some in Sudan), not so much by the Northwest African berbers. Also the patterned cloth that makes up the man's keffiyeh or shimaq is more like those traditionally worn by bedouin (though it's not typical of what's popular today: white patterned cloth with black, red, orange, or offwhite checkering. I'm guessing this is an older drawing). Berbers tend to prefer solid color head wrappings, and usually they are brightly colored maybe bright blue or red or green.
Finally his face doesn't look berber to me, definitely more rural Arab (bedouin), but that's harder to explain why.

Thank you. The one thing I did notice was that Berbers seemed to prefer solid colors.

Yea I came up with the same thing in my reasearch ( though I wouldnt have been able to tell you exactly the difference beforehand, well the difference in appearance that is)

Berber people don;t have that 'ring' on their heads, and have the fabric wrapped around several times, not just one layer. And usually in a single bright colour.

The difference between berber and bedouin women is much greater, and very easy to distinguish.

Btw the picture used in this quiz is not a drawing but a black and white picture coloured in. I allready knew/saw that, but just now I was trying to find the source and apparently the picture is from about 1890-1900 Showing the chief of palmyra/tadmur in syria Entire series of photos

Also, technically, that's a bedu/badu... bedouin is plural. but perhaps that's just in Arabic. Like... djinni is also plural in Arabic but the bastardized English form genie is usually used as a singular.

could blood hound be a basset hound. Not sure about the spelling but I'm sure that's a similar breed.

Basset hounds are usually two or three colors, as opposed to the one-colored bloodhound.

I've had both breeds and about the only thing that they have in common is that they are both hound dogs.Check out pictures of both and you will immediately see the differences.

Berber should be accepted for bedouin

Aug 2, 2019
Why ? and shóuld? just because it is the first thing that came to you mind doesnt mean it should be accepted. It was my first thought too, but the two arent interchangeable and after doing research this is definitely bedouin and not berber.

So there is no reason to accept berber.
