Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Admissibility has four I's in it. Which of these is a synonym for admissibility?

Answer: Compatibility

Admissibility means acceptability by virtue of being compatible or acceptable. Admissible and admissibility come from the Latin word "admittere", meaning to allow entrance or admit. This Latin root led to the French "admissible" in the early 17th century. Admissibility meaning the quality of being acceptable, was used in the mid 18th century, likely from the French "admissibilité".
2. Which 4-I'd word is used with the word "returns" in an economics phrase?

Answer: Diminishing

Diminishing returns is a phrase that describes profits that become proportionally smaller the more money is invested in the enterprise. In other words, the rate of rewards one gets from adding to something gets smaller the more you add--so you don't necessarily stop getting your rewards, it's just that the rate you get them gets smaller and smaller as you keep adding in.

The 18th century economist Jacques Turgot is one of those that originated the explanation of the concept of the law of diminishing returns.

The phrase can also refer to proportionally lessening results from a non-monetary endeavor with increased energy devoted to it.
3. In 1550, a case recorded by the Commission against Blasphemy in Venice documented a clinical case of the type of behavior for which, a century later, the libertine English poet John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester would become known. What was he known for being?

Answer: Exhibitionist

An exhibitionist is someone who enjoys getting attention, or showing off. It comes from the Latin exhibere, meaning to present or show something, and then the Old French word exibicion, meaning to display or show. An exhibitionist seeks to attract attention by displaying himself, or showing off. A libertine meaning someone of a debauched or salacious nature, given to indulging in lust, dates back to the 1590s, although its other meanings date back earlier. John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester was known to engage in what some considered blasphemous behavior, most commonly exhibitionism.

He was also drunk in public often, and his poetry also exhibited strong sexual desires and graphic depictions.
4. Maria Montessori, a philosopher who revolutionized education, wrote that teachers must initiate young children "into those kinds of activities which they can perform themselves and which keep them from being a burden to others because of their ...". What word with four I's completes the statement?

Answer: Inabilities

In her 1950 essay, "The Discovery of the Child", Ms. Montessori wrote about the fundamental nature of children, and introduced her general concepts regarding her education method. She writes about teaching young children being more effective, when it is able to foster a sense of self-esteem in the child, of building up their sense of independence, of being able to see for themselves perhaps where their ability to be aware of their strengths, or simply where their interests and abilities are. The education system should try to help free children from those things in society or in institutions that would limit their imaginations, their "spontaneous manifestations."
5. In the late 19th century, Pope Pius IX issued which papal doctrine to the Catholic Church?

Answer: Infallibility

Infallibility means being completely trustworthy, incapable of being mistaken, from the Medieval Latin "infallibilitas". In the Roman Catholic Church, infallibility extends this sense of being unerring into being an immunity from being wrong when making statements on faith and morals.

In an attempt to assure his ideas could never be contested by future Popes or church leaders, Pius IX issued his doctrine of papal infallibility. The idea behind papal infallibility actually goes back even further, to the 13th century Franciscans averse to church reform, but the doctrine back then was rejected. So, it was not until The First Vatican Council (December 8, 1869 to October 20, 1870) that infallibility was adopted.

The paradox however, involves the still unresolved question of which declarations made by previous popes, throughout the Church's two millennia fall under the doctrine of papal infallibility, and thus cannot be subject to reform.
6. Demarche is a synonym for which of these 4-I'd words?

Answer: Initiative

The word "demarche" means a deliberate or decisive action performed to take the initiative, often used in a diplomatic or political context. It is derived from the 15th-century French "démarche", meaning gait, walk or bearing, according to "Academic Dictionaries and Encyclopedias". The meaning for it taking a proactive diplomatic step started in the 1670s.
Initiative is also from the French. The 16th-century French "initiative" derived from the Latin "initiatus". The phrase "to take the initiative" dates back to 1815.
7. What manner of an incorrect recognition 4-I'd word did The Hope Diamond, The Cardiff Giant, and Anastasia Romanov all have in common?

Answer: They were misidentified

To misidentify something is to not recognize it for what it truly is, to be incorrect or mistake in one's identifying or classifying something. Misidentified is broken down into its prefix mis- which means incorrectly, or badly. The word identify derives from the French verb "identifier", or the noun "identité". These came from the Medieval Latin word "identitas", meaning the same, which comes from the Latin pronoun "idem", meaning the same. The use of the word identify in English dates back to the 1640s, and it indicated something that was judged to be the same as something else.

The Hope Diamond is a renowned and rare, colorful gemstone that at first was misidentified as a sapphire.
The Cardiff Giant was a famous hoax perpetrated in 1869 up in Cardiff, New York in which a giant petrified prehistoric man was unearthed. However, it was actually a large gypsum statue misidentified (deliberately) as a momentous archeological artifact. Many scientists actually fell for the ruse, and initially misidentified it as a "petrified man."
When the Romanov Russian Imperial family was executed in July 1918, several women afterward stepped forward claiming to be the Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, the daughter of Nicholas and Alexandra Romanov. The most famous case of these claimants was Anna Anderson, but it was later proven through DNA testing, that she, like many others was an impostor.
8. In what field of study would one encounter the use of primitivism?

Answer: The arts and literature

Primitivism refers to a style and approach in the arts and literature that is inspired by the simplicity of the art and culture that is perceived in non-Western or prehistoric societies. Pablo Picasso's inspiration drawn from African art led to his development of Cubism. Paul Gaugin and Henri Rousseau were painters who used bold colors, simplified forms, subjects of raw emotion and instinct. Another Rousseau, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, employed primitivism in his literature--the "noble savage" idealization of the goodness of humans in their natural state. And Henry David Thoreau wrote of the simpler life in his seminal work "Walden".
9. Which of these 4-I'd words has its word origin derived from the Latin word for crossroads, according to Merriam-Webster?

Answer: Trivialities

The word triviality derives from "trivialis" the Latin word for commonplace, which in turn comes from "trivium" referring to a place where three roads meet (the "tri" prefix meaning three, and "via" meaning way or road). In Medieval universities, "trivium" referred to the more basic liberal arts, specifically grammar, rhetoric, and logic.

This foundation of subjects was considered more basic or trivial when compared to the more advanced quadrivium subjects, which were arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy. Middle English saw the word "triviale" carry over the meaning of something commonplace, and by Modern English trivialities had the sense of something of little importance, things of insignificant matters
10. Which of these words is related to the 4-I'd word visibility?

Answer: Exponibility

Exponibility means having the capacity to be exposed or made visible. It generally refers to something which needs more detail provided to make it clear. Something exponible can be expounded, with the expanded, or revised statement, making something clear, removing the obscurity. All of these terms come ultimately from the Latin verb "expōnere", meaning to explain.

The other words listed are more associated with invisibility, not visibility.
