Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Many planes still have ashtrays despite the fact that smoking on board was banned many years ago.

Answer: True

Most planes still have ashtrays in the washrooms. Airlines recognize that even though it's against the rules, some passengers insist on smoking, especially on longer flights. The airlines have installed ashtrays for safety reasons. If a person chooses to break the rules and have a smoke in the washroom, it is much safer to have them butt out their cigarette in the ashtray than in the toilet.

There may be combustible paper or flammable chemicals in the toilet.
2. What self-governing country was the first in the world to give women the chance to vote?

Answer: New Zealand

A number of petitions were organized by the women's suffrage movement in New Zealand from the early 1880s through 1892. All were presented to the government, but all failed. In 1893, a petition for women's voting rights was organized by the Women's Christian Temperance Movement and prominent suffragist, Kate Sheppard.

The signatures of 31,872 women were gathered and presented to the New Zealand government. Governor Glasgow signed the Electoral Bill in September, 1893, thus making New Zealand the first self-governing nation to allow women the right to vote.

In comparison, Australian women were granted the right to vote in 1894, and American and Canadian women had to wait until 1918.
3. The Bible records an event in which a donkey speaks to a person.

Answer: True

In Numbers 22:22-35, Balaam does not see the Angel of the Lord, yet his donkey does. When the donkey disobeys Balaam three times, the Angel opens the donkey's mouth to speak to his master. It is only then that Balaam sees the Angel and agrees to return to his men and speak of what the Angel has told him.
4. Who won the Grammy for Best Album in 2001?

Answer: Steely Dan

Steely Dan is actually a group that was formed in 1971 Walter Becker (guitars, bass, backing vocals) and Donald Fagen (keyboards, lead vocals). The band was formed in New York City and went on to play live concerts around the globe as their popularity grew.

They disbanded in 1981, but came together again in 1993. They won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2001 for their album "Two Against Nature". Walter Becker passed away in 2017, but Donald Fagen chose to continue performing under the name "Steely Dan" using a rotating group of session musicians.
5. On "The Simpsons" episode entitled "Lisa's First Word", who voiced Maggie's first word?

Answer: Elizabeth Taylor

This episode was first broadcast in December, 1992. The Simpson family is reminiscing about when Lisa was born and said her first word. Much to her brother's delight, her first word was "Bart". Meanwhile, the Lisa and Bart argue as Homer puts Maggie to bed. Homer tells her that he isn't in any rush for her to talk because as soon as kids begin to talk, they start to talk back.

He puts Maggie to bed, then turns out the light and closes the door. It is only then that Maggie can be seen removing her pacifier and saying "Daddy" when nobody is there to hear her. Elizabeth Taylor had only a one-word script, but apparently had to do a number of takes before the producers were happy because they kept thinking that the voice sounded "too sexy".
6. What colour are most Shasta daisy flowers?

Answer: White petals with a yellow centre

Shasta daisies typically grow in clumps up to two feet (0.6 metres) tall. Each bloom can span one to two inches (2.5 to 5 cm). They have white petals with yellow centres. Shasta daisies do well in cut flower bouquets because their flowers can last for up to a week or more once cut.
7. Which religious organization is known as the Mormons?

Answer: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the LDS Church or Mormon Church, is a Christian church. Members can be found around the world, but the church's headquarters can be found in Salt Lake City, Utah. As of the early part of the 21st century, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is very common in Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Hawaii and California.

As of 2020, membership in the LDS church in the US was 6.7 million members, with a total membership of 16.7 million worldwide.
8. Name the car the 'good ol' boys' drove around in, in the TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard".

Answer: The General Lee

Bo and Luke Duke were cousins who were always getting into trouble. They lived in rural Georgia and were on probation for transporting moonshine. Their escapades had them tearing around in their car, the General Lee, as they tried to stay away from Boss Hogg (County Commissioner), and Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane.

The car was a customized 1969 Dodge Charger. "The Dukes of Hazard" was on television from 1979 to 1985, and broadcast a total of 147 episodes.
9. How many new breeds did the American Kennel Club begin to recognize in January, 2022?

Answer: 2

In January, 2022, the American Kennel Club (AKC) recognized two new breeds. Both will now be able to compete in AKC competitions. The new dogs include the Hungarian mudi and the Russian toy. The mudi is a medium-sized sheepdog that is quite shaggy and is able to herd sheep, hunt boars, and snag rats.

The Russian toy was first bred back in the 1700s. They were originally bred from small English terriers. These small dogs typically weigh in at no more than 6.5 pounds (2.7 kg). The AKC maintains the oldest purebred dog registry in the US.

When these two dogs were recognized, the AKC had recognized 199 different breeds including these two newcomers. The AKC also acts as a governing body for many dog shows by setting the judging standards for them.
10. What is the only state in the US with a one-syllable name?

Answer: Maine

Maine is located in New England in the northeastern portion of the US. It borders New Brunswick and Quebec in Canada. It is also the only state to border only one other state. Maine is the largest of the New England states by area. It is also the most northerly of the contiguous states that lie east of the Great Lakes.
