Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. King Arthur was a good king, but his kingdom had problems. There was a drought, crops and livestock were dying, and not a drop of rain in the sky. He consulted with experts, but still could not find the real reason behind all of these problems.

Answer: Underlying Cause

The phrase "underlying cause" refers to the fundamental reason or origin behind a particular issue or problem. It denotes the primary factor that contributes to the manifestation of a symptom or a situation. Understanding the underlying cause is required for effectively addressing and resolving the issue at hand, not its symptoms.
2. King Arthur said: "We must go on a quest!" with the goal being to find out what is behind the problems in the kingdom. However, he forgot to tell Guinevere, his wife. Oh boy, was she ever mad. He was so in trouble that the king had to sleep on the sofa that night.

Answer: In the Doghouse

The phrase "in the doghouse" is an idiom that means someone is in trouble or has fallen out of favour. It suggests that the person has done something wrong or displeasing, resulting in their figurative banishment to a state of disapproval or punishment. Being "in the doghouse" often implies a need for reconciliation or apology to (pardon my use of another idiom) be in one's good graces. Flowers help.
3. Not only was Guinevere mad at King Arthur, but, when he looked in the treasury, the vault was bare! How could he deal with the kingdom when the problems kept piling up at home?!

Answer: Add Insult to Injury

The idiom "add insult to injury" means making a bad situation even worse by doing or saying something that makes it more painful or upsetting. It's like rubbing salt in a wound, making the original problem feel even harder to deal with. It implies further humiliation or aggravation after already experiencing harm or distress.
4. King Arthur needed funds, so he went to his richest knight, Sir Galahad. He told him all about the mission, but swore him to the utmost secrecy so that there would not be panic in the kingdom, fuelled by rumours.

Answer: Top Secret

The phrase "top secret" refers to information or knowledge that is highly classified and restricted. It denotes the highest level of confidentiality and is typically reserved for sensitive matters of national security or strategic importance. Access to top-secret information is tightly controlled and limited to authorized personnel only.

After all, the chance a secret gets out is *exponentially* proportional to the amount of people who know it.
5. Thankfully, Sir Galahad had some spare gold in his vault. "I always keep some for a rainy day" he explained. King Arthur thanked him for his generous donation, and the two set out to gather a trusted few that would go out with them on their quest.

Answer: Cash on Hand

The expression "cash on hand" refers to the amount of physical currency or readily accessible funds a person or organization possesses at a given time. It represents money that is immediately available for spending or use without needing to be withdrawn from a bank account or converted from other assets. Having cash on hand allows for the flexibility to do or pay for what you need at that moment.
6. King Arthur's knights hired a ship and set sail for their destination. As they were in their caravel, Sir Bors came up to King Arthur and told him: "Milord, there is a ship approaching!" "Do we have any reason to worry?" asked the king. "Yes, my liege, I can see their banner, they're... they're.. PIRATES!"

Answer: skull and crossbones

The phrase "skull and crossbones" typically refers to a symbol consisting of a human skull and two crossed bones, often depicted on flags or signs. It is commonly associated with warnings of danger or poisonous substances, originally in contexts like pirate flags (where it was also known as the "Jolly Roger"). Recently, it can be found on hazardous material labels, still signifying caution to the reader.

The symbol has a long history of representing death, danger, or the presence of lethal substances.
7. When the pirate ship came close enough, people from both sides jumped to engage in battle. Eventually King Arthur found himself face-to-face with the pirate captain. Gripping his sword, Excalibur, tightly, Arthur launched into a vicious attack, eventually slicing right through the midsection of the pirate captain. As the knights cheered, the pirates surrendered, and the knights continued on their quest.

Answer: Cut in half

The phrase "cut in half" means to divide something into two equal parts by using a cutting motion or tool. It implies a clean separation along a specific axis or plane, resulting in two symmetrical halves. This action is often employed in various contexts, such as cooking, woodworking, or discussions about division or allocation.

In the context of a swordfight, "cut in half" refers to the act of cleaving an opponent's body into two separate pieces with a sharp sword stroke. This outcome underscores the ferocity and effectiveness of the swordsman's technique in combat. Or just luck.
8. As the knights reached their destination, they disembarked from their ship. They began to explore the new land they were on. King Arthur saw a dromedary and remarked "what strange animals be these... I'd much rather go back home!" The other knights agreed, but did not want to give up just yet.

Answer: Camelot

"Camelot" is a legendary and mythical castle associated with the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. It symbolizes an idealized and utopian realm of chivalry, justice, and honour. The concept of Camelot embodies the pursuit of noble ideals and the quest for a just and harmonious society. Often used metaphorically, this expression defines a path that might not have an end, but the journey there is the adventure.
9. Suddenly, the adventurers came across an old mage. He told them that the answer to their problems was in a vial, which he gave them willingly, but warned them that they had to open it only when they were back in England. The group returned home and went to open the vial, but discovered that the seal had been cracked long ago. "Ah well", said Arthur, "that was all too easy for it to actually be the solution".

Answer: Too good to be true

The expression "too good to be true" describes something that seems exceptionally favourable or desirable but is perceived as unlikely or improbable. It suggests skepticism or suspicion regarding the authenticity or genuineness of the situation or offer.

When something appears "too good to be true", people often question its validity or wonder if there might be hidden drawbacks or risks involved. Is there always a catch? Is nothing ever really for free? That's for you to decide...
10. Disappointed, Arthur went out to the fields to contemplate the situation. Guinevere went out to meet him and offered him some advice: "Why don't you look to the skies?" she asked. "You mean, pray to God?" was the confused reply. "Don't you think I've tried that?!" "No, you dolt, just look!" When Arthur actually raised his eyes, suddenly he saw it. Clouds! A storm! Rain! England was going to be fine, after all!

Answer: Upwards

"Upwards" typically refers to a direction pointing toward a higher position or elevation. It signifies movement or orientation in an upward direction, away from the ground or a lower point. This term is commonly used to describe upward movement, growth, or progression, or simply raising your eyes to the sky.
