The Letter N Trivia Questions

1. History and Music: "In 1814 we took a little trip, Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip'" are the opening lines of a song about a famous battle. The name of which US city appears in the title?

From Quiz
'N'tangled 'N's

Answer: New Orleans

The Battle of New Orleans took place in 1815 and was one of the last battles of the War of 1812 between the United States and United Kingdom. It famously took place a couple of weeks after the war had been officially ended by the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, news of which had not yet reached either army. It ended in a clear victory for the US, whose forces were commanded by future president Andrew Jackson. The lyrics in question come from the song 'The Battle of New Orleans', which was about the 1815 battle and written by folk music songwriter Jimmy Driftwood in the 1930s. It was first released by him in 1958, but the most famous version of the song was performed by Johnny Horton a year later and made it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Many other artists have also covered the song, including Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Cash and Bill Haley.

2. Often described as the greatest sire of the twentieth century, who is this Italian bred champion Thoroughbred?

From Quiz The 'N' Quiz

Answer: Nearco

Nearco, who was bred, owned, raced and trained by Italian legend Frederico Tesio. Nearco raced fourteen times and was undefeated. His wins Included the Italian Derby and Grand Prix of Paris.

3. What word of Latin origin is used to describe a particularly wicked or villainous deed or person? (It was used ironically in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" by Nazi agent Toht to describe Indiana Jones).

From Quiz An N-spirational Quiz

Answer: nefarious

"Nefarious" comes from the Latin "nefarius", which means "execrable" or "abominable", and "nefarius" itself is derived from the Latin word "nefas", which refers to something contrary to what has been spoken by the gods as divine law. One may use the word to refer to "nefarious actions" or a "nefarious plot", such as in this sentence: The individuals seeking to overthrow the government were relying on nefarious methods, such as deception, blackmail, and murder. However, one may also use the word to describe a person him or herself. In the 1981 film "Raiders of the Lost Ark", one of the Nazi agents--Toht--shows up at Marian's bar in Tibet searching for the medallion for which Indiana Jones himself has been looking. Toht says to Marian, "Surely he mentioned there would be other interested parties". Marian replies, "Must have slipped his mind", and Toht responds, "The man is ... nefarious". This is an instance of "the pot calling the kettle 'black'", as the expression goes.

4. Depending on who you believe, the Inuit are said to have numerous names for snow. The name for this type of snow however has found its way into the English language from the French or Swiss French. What is it?

From Quiz 'N'ticing Nugatory Nuggets of (k)Nowledge

Answer: Névé

Névé is a type of hard granular snow that can end up as glacial ice. As for Inuit names for snow, you could look at the satirical list of 100 names produced by Phil Jones which includes such gems as MacTla (snow burgers), fritla (fried snow) and gristla (deep fried snow).

5. Prolific American actor, singer, director, producer and magician Neil Patrick Harris is from which state of the United States of America?

From Quiz An N-ticing and N-thralling Quiz

Answer: New Mexico

He later became particularly well known for his role as womanizer Barney Stinson in the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother". He was named as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in 2010 and awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in September 2011.

6. The logo that uses a heart symbol to represent the word "love" has been adapted for many places and objects, but what were the original letters that complete the famous "I love..." slogan (I [heart] ___)?

From Quiz Not Just Any Quiz - the Nnnn-y Quiz

Answer: NY - New York

Designer Milton Glaser, famous for his psychedelic album poster of Bob Dylan, was charged with creating a slogan to promote tourism in New York State in 1977. He was in a New York taxi cab when inspiration came to him and he scribbled "I [heart] NY" in red crayon on the back of a torn envelope. He had no idea it would become not just an enduring New York success but a global pop-culture icon. The original envelope and design is displayed in MOMA's art collection where you can view it on-line. Glaser made no money from it, having done the original work pro bono. The heart symbol is the first symbol to enter a dictionary as a word in its own right; it was included in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2011.

7. The abbreviation "NO" was found on many an old nautical map pointing certain conditions of the weather in the area. Translating into English, what did "NO" stand for?

From Quiz No, No, a Thousand Times, No!

8. Climbing the (castle) walls: Which castle had a most unusual entrance from the river into the main tower?

From Quiz Naughty or Nice - it's the "N" Quiz

Answer: Newport Castle

Newport Castle, in Newport, Wales, has the dubious distinction of being largely covered by roadways. Only the east side of the castle remains. It was built starting in 1327 on the site of an earlier castle, and was in use for only about two centuries. One unusual feature is the central tower - at high tide the river would rise and enter the ground floor of the tower. Entrance to the tower from the river was through a river gate with portcullis. Today the site is closed to the general public due to safety issues. Nogales Castle in Spain is a somewhat small square curtain wall with four round towers in the corners, and a very tall - quite disproportional - square central tower. Probably late 13th or early 14th century, it was owned by the Suarez family of Figueroa. Nymphenburg Castle is a 17th century Palladian edifice built as the summer residence for the Bavarian Elector. Located near Munich, Germany, it was designed by the architect Agostino Barelli. The grounds include a garden which was originally designed in the style of Versailles, with five pavilions. Norwich Castle in Norfolk, England, was built by William the Conqueror after his victory at Hastings in 1066. Only the keep survives, but it was originally a motte and bailey structure. From 1220 to 1887 it was used as a prison, complete with dungeons, gibbet iron, ducking stool and a scold's bridle. Since then it has been a museum.

9. About which "chambered" sea creature did Oliver Wendell Holmes write a poem that ends with the line "Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!"?

From Quiz The Kitchen Sink -- "N"

Answer: nautilus

The chambered nautilus is the most recognized species of nautilus, mostly because of its significance in literature, art, and even mathematics. Its shell is of a logarithmic spiral, contradicting the idea that nature doesn't follow symmetry or geometry. One of the most famous works written about the nautilus was "The Chambered Nautilus" by Oliver Wendell Holmes.

10. Who is the Roman god of the sea?

From Quiz Tiffany's "N"-teresting Quiz

Answer: Neptune

Neptune is known for being the Roman god of the sea, but as Neptune Equestor he is also associated with horses and horse races. His symbol is the trident and he can be compared to the Greek god Poseidon. The Romans held the celebration Neptunalia on July 23 - a time when they turned to Neptune since the waters were low due to the hot summer months.

11. Where was Andy Griffith from?

13. The word "nainsook" refers to what kind of thing?

From Quiz Hello, Here is the Letter "N"

Answer: A type of fabric

Muslin has various types of cotton fabrics with different weights and quality. Nainsook is a type of soft, fine, lightweight, white muslin that is used for making baby clothes or lingerie for women. The word nainsook, a type of fabric, is derived from the Hindi word "nainsukh" which means "eyes' delight".

14. Animals and World: What type of marine mollusc, often described as a "living fossil", shares its name with the world's first nuclear-powered submarine?

From Quiz 'N'tangled 'N's

Answer: Nautilus

The name nautilus is given to all of the six extant species of the Nautilidae family, which are characterised by their smooth spiral-shaped shells and live around deep coral reefs of the Indian and Pacific oceans. They are also believed to have evolved hundreds of millions of years ago and not changed much since! The largest and best known of these elusive creatures is the chambered nautilus, also known as the pearly nautilus. The USS Nautilus, launched in 1954, was the first submarine in the world to be powered by a nuclear reactor, the key benefit of which was the ability to remain submerged for much longer periods of time than conventionally-powered vessels. It was also notable for being the first submarine to successfully make an underwater trip to the North Pole - a project known (somewhat incongruously) as Operation Sunshine. USS Nautilus shared its name with both the fictional submarine commanded by Captain Nemo in Jules Verne's 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' and a vessel tested in 1800 that is widely regarded as being the first practical working example of a submarine.

15. Noumea is the capital of a South Pacific island country; what is the island group?

16. What large rodent, also known as the coypu, was once native to temperate and subtropic zones of South America but has now become a pest all over the world because of those who once imported this creature for its fur?

From Quiz An N-spirational Quiz

Answer: nutria

The nutria is large enough to be mistaken by some as a beaver or an extremely large rat. It's head does resemble a beaver's and it is covered in brown fur; however, its tail is more like that of a rat than of a beaver. Its primary habitat is an area occupied by the nations of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia, and Chile. However, there are now pockets of these mammals in North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa because of entrepreneurs who sought to make a profit from what was at one time a lucrative nutria fur trade. For various reasons, such as hurricanes that destroyed nutria farms and a declining interest in the fur of these animals, nutria found themselves living independently in foreign habitats. Unfortunately, these habitats were not adapted to the nutria's presence. The nutria eats nearly 25% of its weight everyday and reproduces exponentially. Because of their constant eating and burrowing, they end up destroying the habitats of other animals, reducing food supplies for other animals, causing crop damage for farmers, and destroying human houses and machinery.

17. Can you name this country which has Spanish as its official language and Managua as its capital?

From Quiz 'N'ticing Nugatory Nuggets of (k)Nowledge

Answer: Nicaragua

Conquered in the 16th Century by the Spanish, large chunks of the population succumbed to the diseases brought by the conquistadors. Nicaragua is the largest country by area in Central America; it is also the poorest and least populated.

18. Which part of the human body is made from a toughened protein called keratin and usually features a prominent white-coloured area known as the "lunula"?

From Quiz An N-ticing and N-thralling Quiz

Answer: Nails

Like animals' horns and hooves, human fingernails and toenails are made from a tough protein called keratin. Nails found on humans and other primates evolved from the claws of earlier animals. The "lunula" is the white crescent-shaped area of the nail which sits at the base of the nail, against the finger. Changes in the colour of the lunula can indicate certain health issues. For example, the area might take on a blue tinge in a patient suffering from silver poisoning, or possibly turn red where a patient suffers from heart disease.

19. "Nincompoop" (meaning "fool") may derive from which Latin phrase still in use today?

From Quiz Not Just Any Quiz - the Nnnn-y Quiz

Answer: Non compos (mentis)

The origin of the word "nincompoop" is not definitively known but Dr Johnson, in his famous dictionary, hypothesized the connection and although other theories have been put forward, his theory still carries support. Non compos mentis means "not in control of the mind" (not of sound mind). Ne plus ultra means "nothing further beyond" (the highest point, the ultimate). Nil desperandum is a popular motto and means "never despair". Nota bene means "note well" and is usually written as N.B.

20. There are many countries, provinces, territories and states in our world that begin with "NO". Of the four cities listed, which one is a capital of one of them?

From Quiz No, No, a Thousand Times, No!

22. What capital of the Jiangsu Province and site of a famous massacre was once one of the "Four Great Ancient Capitals of China"?

From Quiz The Kitchen Sink -- "N"

Answer: Nanjing

A Chinese phrase, the "Four Great Ancient Capitals of China" were Beijing, Nanjing, Luoyang, and Xi'an.

Japanese soldiers invaded China and committed acts of genocide and other atrocities.

25. Celebrities and Hobbies: The cookbook 'How to be a Domestic Goddess' is by which author and TV chef, whose first name is also a genus of flowering plants commonly known as love-in-a-mist?

From Quiz 'N'tangled 'N's

Answer: Nigella Lawson

Nigella Lawson is a British journalist, cookery author and TV celebrity cook having hosted eponymous shows such as 'Nigella Bites', 'Nigella Feasts' and 'Nigella's Cook, Eat, Repeat' as well as appearing as a guest judge on various reality cooking shows, including 'MasterChef Australia' and 'The Taste'. She is a member of the family that founded British food company J. Lyons & Co (who were known for their tea and their Corner House tea rooms) and the daughter of former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Nigel Lawson. Love-in-a-mist, also known as 'devil in the bush', has the scientific name Nigella damascena and is a member of the buttercup family.

26. What composite material often found along the inside of oysters' and mussels' shells is often referred to as "mother of pearl" and is used for decorative purposes in architecture as well as for jewelry and buttons?

From Quiz An N-spirational Quiz

Answer: nacre

As a substance, nacre is composed of both organic and inorganic materials, and it is prized for its iridescent quality. It is found along the inside of some molluscs' shells and on the outside of pearls made by these same molluscs. However, not all molluscs with shells make nacre; in fact, most molluscs' shells are lined on the interior with a more porcellaneous material. Some spoons or their bowls are made with nacre or mother of pearl because many individuals with sensitive palates are able to taste the metal of traditional spoons, which interferes with their being able to taste purely the food they are eating.

27. In 1953 Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing were the first people to climb Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain. What was Sherpa Tenzing's family name?

From Quiz 'N'ticing Nugatory Nuggets of (k)Nowledge

28. Which sovereign state in Africa has an Atlantic coast and shares land borders with Angola, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa?

From Quiz An N-ticing and N-thralling Quiz

Answer: Namibia

The Republic of Namibia gained independence from South Africa in 1990 and established its capital city at Windhoek.

29. Doing the grand tour: Which country, with a population of less than 1,500, is approximately 1.5 times the size of Washington, D.C.?

From Quiz Naughty or Nice - it's the "N" Quiz

Answer: Niue

Niue is a small island in the South Pacific Ocean. It is one of the largest coral islands in existence, and consists of limestone cliffs and a central plateau, with a maximum elevation of 68 metres. The country is self-governing but 'contracts out' its defence and foreign affairs management to New Zealand, and its Chief of State is Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. The Polynesian residents mostly live in 14 villages and on family plantations, where they survive on subsistence farming. Some income comes from sales of coconuts, passion fruit, honey, limes and other agricultural products, and a large source of foreign income is from the sale of postage stamps to collectors worldwide. The country's economy was badly damaged by a 2004 typhoon, and it has had to rely on foreign aid. New Caledonia is an island in the Coral Sea, east of Australia, and includes a number of smaller islands. In size it's a bit smaller than New Jersey, and has a population of about 222,000. It was a French possession, used as a penal colony, but in 1998 the citizens attained some degree of self-government and a promise to hold two referendums to determine whether to become independent. The island does not support its population through agriculture; food is a major import. Its economy is based largely on its deposits of the mineral nickel (it holds about a quarter of the Earth's supply) and tourism, plus substantial support from France. Navassa Island is a territory of the United States, an uninhabited island in the Caribbean Sea, with a total area of 5.4 square kilometres. The US took possession of it in 1857 as a source of guano for fertilizer. There is a lighthouse, built in 1917 but no longer in use. In 1999 it was deemed a National Wildlife Refuge. Haiti disputes the US claim to the island, and its fishermen sometimes camp there. Nauru is the world's smallest independent republic, about one tenth the size of Washington DC (at 21 square kilometres) and with a population of under 14,000. While independent, it obtains much support from Australia, including defence. Located south of the Marshall Islands in the South Pacific, it is an important source of phosphates, although the mines are now largely depleted and the area of the mines is now a wasteland. Revenues from the mining operations had been placed in a trust fund to cushion the economy from the loss of mining income, however, politicians being what they are, the trust fund was raided and the country is now on the brink of bankruptcy. Its only other sources of income are from offshore banking and the growing of coconuts.

30. In 2000, despite controversy, the Russian Orthodox Church canonized which leader and his family as "passion bearers", saints who don't quite die as martyrs, but in a Christ-like or Christian manner?

From Quiz The Kitchen Sink -- "N"

Answer: Nicholas II

In the Russian Orthodox Church, "passion bearers" don't die for their faith as a martyr, but die in a Christian manner. Their lives had to reflect that they had Christian faith. Nicholas II and his family were said to be religious and so even though their eventual fates at the hands of the Bolsheviks were not deaths by religious martyrdom, they were still considered to have died with Christian humility. Controversy over whether or not Nicholas deserved the canonization had been disputed amongst church historians and theologians, but the decision was eventually made toward the affirmative.
