I think technically the color of Buddhist monks' robes is saffron.

Which is basically orange, so what's your point? :D

Saffron is more yellow than orange, to me.

And that’s only some monks. Tibetan Buddhist monastics’ robes are maroon, so it’s good that “red” is not one of the choices here.

Gray is though and that is what most the ones in Taiwan wear. Gray (Taiwan), orange (Thailand), and deep red/maroon (Tibet) all popped into my head immediately.

Luke Skywalker used two different colored light sabers. Blue in Episodes 4, 5, and 8, and green in episode 6.

So it's a bit of a shot in the dark, the color he uses most often, or the color of the one he made himself. Maybe specify it's the color of the one he made?

Agreed. The wording is technically correct - the blue lightsaber is Anakin Skywalker's, he just happens to be using it. Perhaps a subtle hint could be given to help, like "The color of Luke Skywalker's own lightsaber."

Or maybe throw out that question to avoid the confusion.

The blue light saber is the one that Obi Wan gave him that had belonged to his father. So, if one were so inclined, you could argue that the one in 4, 5, and 8 was Anakin's light saber, and the one in 6 was Luke's. (I assume the one in 8 was recovered from his severed hand on Bespin.)

The green one is certainly iconic, but it's not the only answer, so the question should be more specific.

On first read of the Emperor of China question I thought yellow, but then I over-thought it and wondered if it was purple like the Roman Emperors. Should have stuck with my first instinct!

For the Dutch soccer team, the home kit should be specified because the away kits are typically blue.

Level 75

The away kits are always changing, sometimes white, Euro 2012 was black, it's pretty clear he means the iconic orange.

It’s almost like the nickname of the Dutch national team gives the answer.

This quiz made me realize something- I have no idea what a guava is besides being a fruit.

The smell is so strong, I can't get near them. Guess that's why I didn't know what they look like inside

You should try durian, the smell is like 10 times worse.

We picked guavas on Kaua'i so I knew the color, but I don't remember them having a disagreeable smell. I thought they had a similar taste and texture to pears with a hint of something tropical added.

Funny how the Yellow Emperor is the least guessed, even though it’s in the name 😬

It's not in the name anymore.

I’m not sure what you are talking about. It’s a historical term, so even though there is no longer a Chinese emperor, the term remains the same...

Interesting the Emperor of China is the least guessed; that was the easiest question for me! Probably because I live in China.

only one I missed. I tried purple.

I tried red because that's the color one always sees in Chinese restaurants. Silly me.

Level 44

It's probably partially because people in the West associate purple with the imperial authority of the Roman Empire and then ,maybe, project that onto the colour of Chinese Imperial authority as well.

We saw it when we toured the Smithsonian complex in D.C. If you've ever seen it you likely won't forget its beautiful blue color nor it's size - it's HUGE!

Beluga whales actually can be dark, not as dark as for example orcas, but dark grry for sure and someone might even call it "black." It's of course very rare and a typicall colour of them is different, but maybe add (typically) as with the obsidian?
