Question 1 of 10
1. My first way was a HIGHWAY, much wider than an ALLEYWAY - in fact, it had three lanes in each direction and a median. It was also located in the United States, and did not require me to pay to use it, making it which sort of WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 7 letters (ends in -way))
Question 2 of 10
2. Travel was not fast enough for me that WAY, so I boarded a plane. Howvever, before we could speed down the RUNWAY and take a westbound AIRWAY, we needed to slowly travel down which WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 7 letters (ends in -way))
Question 3 of 10
3. Arriving at my destination, I took a moving WALKWAY down a HALLWAY. It was connected to the next building through a covered pedestrian bridge, also known as which sort of WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 6 letters (ends in -way))
Question 4 of 10
4. Now safely arrived in NORWAY, I made some HEADWAY to my destination. The road I took went across a body of shallow water atop some sort of dam. You could also call this type of connection which WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 8 letters (ends in -way))
Question 5 of 10
5. Aaah. Arrival. I quickly took a set of fourteen clubs out of the car's trunk and walked the short PATHWAY to a GATEWAY where I paid my greenfee to the owner of the golf course. Soon, I was standing on well groomed grass, taking my second shot with a long iron towards the green. Since my first shot had been a good one, I w˛uld be playing my second one from which WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 7 letters (ends in -way))
Question 6 of 10
6. The round of golf was refreshing, but I was not yet done having fun. I entered a DOORWAY and walked up a STAIRWAY to come to a carnival-like area with booths for games of skill and dexterity - knock down cans with a thrown ball, throw a ring around the neck of a bottle and so on. This place could also be referred to which WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 6 letters (ends in -way))
Question 7 of 10
7. Unfortunately my aim in the games was worse than that on the course. ANYWAY, thanks to a THROWAWAY remark aimed at a Norwegian player, I had found some friends for the evening and we went to a bar, tasting the local Aquavit. We may have had a bit too much of it, because when we came back out, our movement was a bit like that of trees in the wind. How would you describe it in a short WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 4 letters (ends in -way))
Question 8 of 10
8. I had been AWAY from home for too long. Unfortunately, I was out of cash, so my GETAWAY would have to be cheap. Under the cover of the night, I hid on a ship departing for Hamburg, as an unauthorized traveler that you could name which WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 8 letters (ends in -way))
Question 9 of 10
9. Traveling a well-known SEAWAY south, the ship took to the ocean. In SOME WAY, however, the Captain of the vessel had spotted me and made me decide to either face charges or work for my passage. Thankfully, I had some useful skills and made myself useful and the crew even let me cherry-pick my jobs - in colloquial terms, this could be referred to as giving me which WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 6 letters (ends in -way))
Question 10 of 10
10. Home, sweet home! Passing the ARCHWAY from the STREETWAY to my house, I noticed that everything was still in order. Only the garden was overgrown with weeds, especially one plant also known as meridian fennel - what is its other name, by the WAY?

Answer: (One Word, 7 letters (ends in -way))

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My first way was a HIGHWAY, much wider than an ALLEYWAY - in fact, it had three lanes in each direction and a median. It was also located in the United States, and did not require me to pay to use it, making it which sort of WAY?

Answer: Freeway

In the United Kingdom, this type of road would be called a motorway. Freeways are characterized by having separate lanes for each direction and a median as well as being free of intersections. Access is through on- and off-ramps.
2. Travel was not fast enough for me that WAY, so I boarded a plane. Howvever, before we could speed down the RUNWAY and take a westbound AIRWAY, we needed to slowly travel down which WAY?

Answer: Taxiway

The connecting strips of concrete leading airplanes between the terminal building and the runways are called taxiways. Taxiing is the movement of aircraft on the ground on their own power; planes being pushed or pulled are not considered taxiing. In contrast to runways which bear a numerical designation, taxiways are identified by letter designations.
3. Arriving at my destination, I took a moving WALKWAY down a HALLWAY. It was connected to the next building through a covered pedestrian bridge, also known as which sort of WAY?

Answer: Skyway

Also referred to as sky bridges, skywalks and catwalks, skyways provide quick means of transfer between buildings on opposite sides of an obstacle such as a road. In some cases, skyways are also added to pairs or groups of skyscrapers to avoid having to use the elevators all the way down to the ground floor and then back up. Beyond their utilitarian value, they are often architectural highlights, constructed with ample glass and special highlights.
4. Now safely arrived in NORWAY, I made some HEADWAY to my destination. The road I took went across a body of shallow water atop some sort of dam. You could also call this type of connection which WAY?

Answer: Causeway

Causeways are elevated roadways or pathways connecting across shallow water or wetlands. They are most often constructed atop dams or dikes, but causeway bridges, frequently made of wood, also exist. A characteristic of a causeway is the fact that it is located only slightly above the water and passage under it is not foreseen.
5. Aaah. Arrival. I quickly took a set of fourteen clubs out of the car's trunk and walked the short PATHWAY to a GATEWAY where I paid my greenfee to the owner of the golf course. Soon, I was standing on well groomed grass, taking my second shot with a long iron towards the green. Since my first shot had been a good one, I w˛uld be playing my second one from which WAY?

Answer: Fairway

The fairway is the main playing area of each golf hole. Ideally, a player will hit the fairway with his first stroke (except on a par 3 hole where the goal is to directly hit the green) and then play towards the green before putting the ball into the hole. Things, however, don't usually work right during golf, so players will spend quite some time hitting from the rough or the sand traps or playing additional strokes after losing a ball in the water.
6. The round of golf was refreshing, but I was not yet done having fun. I entered a DOORWAY and walked up a STAIRWAY to come to a carnival-like area with booths for games of skill and dexterity - knock down cans with a thrown ball, throw a ring around the neck of a bottle and so on. This place could also be referred to which WAY?

Answer: Midway

Midways are the ancestors of today's video game arcades, offering simple, short and relatively cheap games of skill to those who want to try their hand. Often looking deceptively easy, most midway games actually require a huge amount of both skill and chance to win. However, most winners walk away proudly, clutching a huge stuffed animal.
7. Unfortunately my aim in the games was worse than that on the course. ANYWAY, thanks to a THROWAWAY remark aimed at a Norwegian player, I had found some friends for the evening and we went to a bar, tasting the local Aquavit. We may have had a bit too much of it, because when we came back out, our movement was a bit like that of trees in the wind. How would you describe it in a short WAY?

Answer: sway

While "sway" is mostly used as a verb, it can also be a noun. It can mean the power to influence someone or a typically uncontrolled sideways movement of a ship or other body. Commonly, the word is used to describe the gait of an intoxicated person, as evidenced even in the Bible: "The earth shall stagger like a drunken man, and shall sway to and fro like a hammock" (Isaiah 24:20).
8. I had been AWAY from home for too long. Unfortunately, I was out of cash, so my GETAWAY would have to be cheap. Under the cover of the night, I hid on a ship departing for Hamburg, as an unauthorized traveler that you could name which WAY?

Answer: Stowaway

In spite of all security, stowaways are still common, especially at sea. Hidden in freight containers, illegal immigrants are frequently transported to Europe and North America this way without adequate food, water or sanitation, and death rates are high.

The chance of surviving as a stowaway on an airplane, however, are even lower - most who try freeze to death or suffocate in the thin air at high altitudes.
9. Traveling a well-known SEAWAY south, the ship took to the ocean. In SOME WAY, however, the Captain of the vessel had spotted me and made me decide to either face charges or work for my passage. Thankfully, I had some useful skills and made myself useful and the crew even let me cherry-pick my jobs - in colloquial terms, this could be referred to as giving me which WAY?

Answer: Leeway

In nautical parlance, leeway is actually a measurement for a deviation in a ship's course from the actual steered course due to wind. If not correcting for wind, a ship will slowly drift away from the wind, arriving well leeward of the projected target.

In common speech, however, "leeway" is used to indicate freedom of choice, especially given to someone in a subordinate position who gets greater self-determination and choice than normally expected for the position.
10. Home, sweet home! Passing the ARCHWAY from the STREETWAY to my house, I noticed that everything was still in order. Only the garden was overgrown with weeds, especially one plant also known as meridian fennel - what is its other name, by the WAY?

Answer: Caraway

Caraway seeds are used as spices, especially in Mediterranean cuisine. They are also used in Central Europe with some potato dishes and as a baking spice in strong, aromatic breads. Various liquors are also flavored with this seed. The plant itself grows easily in sunny, dry spots and, as a biennial, can quickly proliferate if the summer after planting it is warm and dry.
