I thought Roland Garros was the stadium the French Open was played in, not another name for it. Clue was kinda misleading.

It's both - in France, we never call it "French Open", which we think of as more of a "title".

My nom du guerre de quatorze was Quinze. I know, that was a bad history pun. I tried to seize the moment. My sarcastic friends are dix, slapping their knees saying that onze was a douze-y. You may now petition Quizmaster for a dislike button.

"Triumph" is acceptable but "Triomphe" (the spelling in the answer) isn't? I stopped taking the quiz at that point.

"Triomphe" has always been an acceptable answer. You typed it wrongly if it didn't work.

Technically, Stade de France isn't the biggest stadium in Paris since it's outside the city, in Saint-Denis. Therefore, Parc des Princes is the biggest stadium INSIDE Paris.

Kindly accept CDG, the airport code for Charles de Gualle, as a correct answer. Am I wrong in thinking airport are codes commonly accepted in other quizzes?

Exactly, for whatever reason "degaul" is accepted so CDG should work too.

La Giaconda and La Jaconde should both be acceptable for Mona Lisa.

to be correct, if you meant the name by which the painting is known in Italy, it is "La Gioconda", not "La Giaconda".

I am confused by the news paper question. I can't find anything that supports Le Parisien (230k) having a higher circulation than Le Monde (303) or Le Figaro (330). Those numbers are from 5 years ago so it might have changed like I said I can't find anything at least in English that shows that.

I agree. I guessed le Monde, le Figaro, les Echos etc. Very surprised to see le Parisien as the answer

i tried Nike of Samothrace (in various spellings/versions) before Venus de Milo. Since both are kept at Louvre Museum i think both should be accepted. Also: both are armless, of course
