Quizzical87: All the answers lie within the question. A word needs reversing to give the correct answer. For example: Where this Dutch cheese is made? Reverse 'made' to give 'Edam' (Dutch cheese). Happy back wording.

Some sample questions from this category:

* Multiples of what number (1x?,2x?,3x?,4x?,5x?,6x?,7x?,8x?,9x?,10x?), when strung together make a palindrome? (if you leave off the zero at the end, or if you add a zero to the beginning of the first multiple)
* The next palindrome is the name of someone who was a Cambodian Prime Minister. The name sounds like the trade name for a benzydamine cream in Mexico.
