Palaeontology has a legitimate alternate spelling. The earth bears life, it doesn't have 'a life.' Such euphemism is a red herring and doesn't belong in a quiz.

not enough time. And i was pretty sure I spelled two of them right which didnt get accepted. But metereology didnt get accepted either, but yea that one i might have indeed misspelled (like I did just now ;) haha) Perhaps accept cosmology aswell. They arent 100 synonymous, but in many cases interchangable.
