Tributary seems to be an intruder here, it's the only one which does not begin with the prefix meaning "three". Trifecta would be equivalent to "tiercé"? It's not in my dictionary.

But it's not about the "meaning" of the prefix; the quiz asks for those words beginning with "tri". I doesn't even require it to be a prefix technically, although most of the answers are.

Should have got triumvirate, but may I suggest triarchy (which I did try) also fits 'group of three leaders' just as well and is just as common?

In the UK, there is no such thing as a trifecta, but there is a tricast (think they may be the same thing?)

Couldn't a triad be a group of three leaders? And aren't pitchforks and tridents different things? Pitchforks (usually four-pronged) are for hay, tridents for fish.
