1. Uranus is the Roman form of Ouranos, which should be the correct answer.

2. There is a different way to split the first two questions

3. The type-ins in this quiz are atrocious - I tried "Ate them" and "eat them" for #5 and it wouldn't take them. Perhaps they aren't *wholly* correct but it's mostly what everyone believes and should be a type in.

4. It should be Cronos or Cronus, not Chronos.

Uranus is not the Roman form of Ouranos, Caelus is. Uranus is just the Latin Spelling of it, which is different from Greek Transliteration.

This was maybe the worst mythology quiz. First, for 1 and 2, you should have said the first Olympians, not gods. It’s Cronus or Kronos, no H. Number 5, 9, 14, 17, 19, 24 are oddly specific. Even all the group ones are pretty specific. You could have made three separate rows and then merged the hints. Also, why would you get the sirens from Lycophron. At least list the sources. Maybe you could have done Hesiod? Lycophron’s sirens are not famous.

Chronus isn’t the father of the original Olympians. It is Cronus or Kronos. Chronus is the lord of time and a completely different person
