Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Tan

A tone of brown, the colour tan is one that can be used for skin colour; someone can be naturally tan or they can suntan. Tanning also refers to the process in which animal skins are treated to create leather. If you're using a Crayola crayon, tan is usually a bit more orange than the version displayed; generally tan is considered a greyish-yellow.
2. Fuchsia

Named after a beautiful plant, fuchsia is a pinkish-purple that appears when its flowers blossom. Similar to magenta, which appears a bit redder, fuchsia is one of a small handful of colours, along with cyan and yellow, that play a big part in bringing images to a computer screen; fuchsia is created when blue and red light are shone at their brightest combined intensity. 'Fuchsia Rose' was named the Colour of the Year by design company Pantone in 2001.
3. Burgundy

Named after the colour of a notable wine from the Burgundy Region of France, burgundy is a deep purplish-red (with a hint of brown, though if it were more brown it'd be maroon). A rich, warm colour, burgundy is used to shade things with richness. It can be a dark hair dye colour or it can be a sensible colour of clothing for a fancy event.
4. Canary

Canary, also known as process yellow, is (along with cyan and magenta) one of the base colours used for screen displays and printing. Canary is considered a strong, vivid colour and it's named after the canary bird. This being said, canaries aren't always a vivid yellow; some are duller and some can even be pink, orange, or brown.
5. Salmon

While there are different intensities of salmon as a tone, salmon is generally a pinkish colour with varying red and brown tones. Named after the fish of the same name, salmon is considered a pink when using Crayola crayons and markers. In the sea, salmon can actually have different colours depending on what and how much they eat.
6. Cyan

Sitting in the middle of blue and green on the colour wheel, cyan is an important colour for screen displays and ink printers, being a primary base for design and graphics. The natural gas methane is coloured cyan when it's used for cooking and since the planet Uranus has methane in its atmosphere, it too is cyan.
7. Lime

A vivid green, lime is named after the citrus fruit (in the same way that lemon yellow is). Found between yellow and yellow-green on the colour wheel, lime has slight variations that are more or less intense; peridot, a birthstone, is ruddier; lemon-lime, which is lighter, is seen in sodas. In nature, limes can be lighter or darker depending on ripeness.
8. Charcoal

A version of dark grey, charcoal shares its name with the word for burnt wood; it's lighter than stone but darker than gunmetal. In nature, charcoal results when wood chips are put to fire, destroying living material in the original plant. Many people use charcoal to cook barbecue; others use it for art.
9. Ochre

A colour created with sand and iron, ochre is a shade of orange, deep and earthy and related to other colours like umber and burnt sienna. Ochre is a unique substance since it was use in prehistoric cave drawings, allowing early humans to depict pictures on rock in colour. Ochre, today, is mined from the ground and used in paints.
10. Mauve

Named after a flower like other types of purple, mauve also, historically, went by the name 'mallow'. Surprisingly, the colour and plant mauve are much older than one may expect as both were named in literature from thousands of years ago (in Ancient Greece). Mauve has, historically, been a popular colour in art and design.
