Why do you have to type the whole word? All the other suffix quizzes, you just type until you get to the suffix.

In this quiz the entire word is required because a couple of the answers have the same first three letters, so typing one would accidentally give you points for the other.

Not necessarily the first 3 letters, just all the letters before -try.

AlexTrebeck. I don't consider optometrists as doctors. They do not have a medical degree. A doctor who specialises in eyes is an ophthalmologist and the speciality is called ophthalmology. This question needs rewording.

I missed "industry" but was surprised to see it was the lowest on the answer grid. Got everything else though. Thanks for a fun quiz!

These are great quizzes Kiwi. One thing though, optometry isn't a doctor's speciality, it's a qualification in itself. The doctor's eye speciality is ophthalmology. It's like radiography (non-doctors) and radiology (specialist doctors).

I'm not sure that the industry clue fits. It threw me when it said, especially in a factory. Industry is a bit broader than goods that are manufactured in a factory. It could refer to any number of services that are provided, e.g. the banking industry, restaurant industry.

The "Medical" specialty is Ophthalmology. Optometrists do not go to medical school.
