Someone who reacts with "Neato!" is very keen on whatever it is.

"Keen" can mean "cool," also. It was likely chosen as the answer by being a synonym.

Neat-o and keen are old-fashioned ways of saying "Totally rad, dude!"

Not all people from the UK are Brits, only the ones actually from that island. Also, you should say 'rent out an apartment', landlords let, rentees lease.

Not everyone from the UK is British, only citizens of Scotland, Wales and England...so ppl from the likes of Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Mann, etc. are from the UK, but are not considered British.

People from IOW, IOM and Northern Ireland are all British. The IOM is a British crown dependency.

Somehow I saw the clue as "Ultrasound of surprise" and I was typing things like "Oh," "Wow," etc. So sad.

If you can only think of "Neato!" as a clue and Nix (US slang) as an answer, maybe just drop that particular name!

Might consider changing the clue to 'Ultrasound surprises,' as the answer is plural, the clue ought to be.

Nah. I can see the technician saying, "Uh-oh, I've got a surprise for you!" Knowing you're pregnant, and then being told you have TWINS is a surprise. It's not 2 surprises.

Would be nice if it said, "Pitch" of sound cows make. Cows don't say, "Low, Low" ... they do say, "Moo, moo" ... right?

Very clever quiz, but it needs an example in the instructions. I was about two minutes in before I figured out what it was all about. And, yes, I did read the instructions but they didn't make much semse to me. Add an example to them and hey presto. It also needs a tad more time. Those of us on Ipads have a lot of scroling up and down to do.

There seems to be a problem with the final question. I can't see where the "Jo" comes from.

I think that is how they pronounce it ( in some places) it is like howa-kien but with the ho silent.

I thought of sophia loren multiple types, but kept dismissing it, cause I thought there is no way a cow says lor or low..
