Around the House Trivia Questions

1. What hand-held rectangular items have small buttons on top?

From Quiz
Things in the Living Room

Answer: Remote controls

Remote controls usually use something called infrared light to control things like televisions, stereos, and DVD players. The infrared light is not visible to humans, but the appliances can receive the signals. Remote controls operate things like power (on/off), volume, channel, and other functions of the appliances. The appliance responds properly because the remote sends a different light pulse signal for each function.

From Quiz Domestic Duties

Answer: Hang the clothes on the washing line

The laundry has already been washed and I've put it in the basket. The kids just have to take it outside and hang it on the washing line. There are a couple of steps for them to stand on and it will keep them out of the house for a while so their dad can have a few more minutes of sleep.

8. In what room of the house are you most likely to find a mandoline?

From Quiz In My Place

Answer: Kitchen

A mandoline is a kitchen tool used for slicing and chopping. Used like a large grater, it can slice things very thin, such as potatoes for making potato chips. It's not to be confused with a mandolin (note the different spelling), which is a musical instrument played like a guitar.

The Clock Tower is about 316 feet (96 meters) tall, and is one of the most famous landmarks in London, the capital city of England. The Great Bell inside the tower whose chimes mark the hour is called Big Ben, but sometimes the entire clock or tower is called by this nickname.

10. When we see this kind of house made out of sun-dried bricks, we think of Spanish people. What kind of home did they build?

These small houses were cheap to build and were made with materials from the earth. They used clay, sand, straw, sticks, water, and other natural matter. They poured the mixture in home-made frames and let the sun dry them. Many countries have adobe houses, but the first recorded largest house was built in 500 BC.

11. Someone tells you it's "half past eight". The big hand on the clock will be pointing at which number?

17. What non-animal living thing can be found in many living rooms, especially in houses where people with "green thumbs" live?

From Quiz Things in the Living Room

Answer: Plants

Some people enjoy putting plants in their living rooms. Plants take carbon dioxide out of the air, and replace it with oxygen. When they help to provide clean oxygen in the air, they give us something that we all need to help us stay healthy. A person who can keep a plant healthy is sometimes said to have a "green thumb". Their thumb doesn't really turn green, though. That's just a nickname that is given so that the rest of us know that they are able to keep plants alive.

In the 19th century, sewing changed forever with the advent of the sewing machine. Thomas Saint was the first to patent a sewing machine back in 1790. However, it was Isaac Singer who brought the sewing machine to the masses in the 1850s.

From Quiz Name Ten Things You'll Find in a Kitchen!

From Quiz Tommy Toaster Loves Those Appliances

Answer: Popcorn Maker

Popcorn makers appeared in homes during the 1970s. The most popular ones used hot air to cook the corn kernels because they reduced the amount of fat and calories. The popcorn maker and I were great friends, but unfortunately she had to go away because our owners discovered that it's easier these days to make popcorn in the microwave.

27. The kids are back inside now and I've just checked their rooms. It looks like each has had a bomb go off in there! Can you guess what I'm going to ask each child to do next?
