My English teacher wouldn't like the way the question's worded now either. Remember that prepositions are a part of speech that you should never end a sentence with.

Um, guys… I hate to break up perfectly good prepositional banter, but I'm pretty sure that's not what Sean's jab was about. In Mal's objection to the preposition at the end of the sentence in the clue, he misused the contraction "Who's" when obviously the right word there is "Whose". Confucius say, "People who live in glass possessives shouldn't throw prepositions".

One more quiz that a perfect score depends on giving a damn about soccer. Most of us on this side of the pond don't.

I understand what you mean but there are 2 points I would like to make: Firstly, it is not only Americans that use this site; quizzes have to cater to everyone and football(or as you say, soccer) is extremely popular all over the world and the U.S. is in the minority for not having taking to it as well as most countries have. Secondly, I, as a European, have missed out on getting 100% on many quizzes because I don't know about things that are particularly popular or prevalent in the U.S., things that are not treated the same in my country. There is no problem with that at all, this is a global site so topics from around the world should be what's expected.

It's a quiz about South America, if you don't know the importance of football in south america you are very misinformed, you are lucky there's just one question haha. Also, it's the biggest sporting event in the world outside of the olympics, not some local competition so stop complaining.
