Something weird is going on with the type-ins. F Roosevelt is accepted, but Franklin Roosevelt is not. Also, please accept FDR. For that matter, just Roosevelt should get both him and Teddy, as it does in most quizzes.

I tried Jefferson, who was governor of Virginia. That didn't work. I tried Roosevelt. That didn't work. Then I gave up.

Sorry about that,..... Just to make life easier, Roosevelt will give both Presidents.

I think some time could be taken off the clock (was able to type in all of the president with 2 minutes left)

Good for you, unfortunately many of us aren't as well versed with the Governor / President relationship as yourself and some thinking time is necessary (especially many like myself that do not live in the US) Think of it this way....... you will have more time to go and try some of my other quizzes that you may find a little trickier.

I think he was saying that one can just type the entire list of presidents in the time given, so there is no need to think about which ones might have been governors. Making it a yellow box quiz would help solve that problem. Great quiz, though. I learned some new things.

OK, I've now made this quiz a 'Yellow Box' answer quiz.
