Green Trivia Questions

1. "Green is the Colour" is the name of a song released in the late 1960s by a famous English band. What is the name of this band?

From Quiz
There Is Green all Over the World

Answer: Pink Floyd

"Green is the Colour" is one of the tracks for "More", the third album by the English band Pink Floyd, released in 1969. It was composed and written by Roger Waters and sung by David Gilmour. The song was part of the band's concerts from 1969 through 1970. The album "More" was the soundtrack for the film with the same name. In 2016, a new version of this song appeared in "The Early Years 1965-1972", which is the compilation box set of the band's first works.

2. What notorious English monarch was long believed to have been the author of the traditional folk song "Greensleeves"?

From Quiz Green Is the Colour

Answer: Henry VIII

According to a well-known legend, "Greensleeves" was written by King Henry VIII for his lover and future second wife, Anne Boleyn, who at first rejected his advances ("cast me off discourteously"). The title has also been interpreted as a reference to the long sleeves that Anne wore to hide her right hand, which was said to have six fingers. However, the Italian style of composition on which the song is based - known as "romanesca" or "passamezzo antico" - reached England in the late 16th century, during the reign of Henry and Anne's daughter, Elizabeth I. Other interpretations point to the lament of a lover betrayed by a woman of easy virtue, possibly even a prostitute - and, indeed, in some late medieval and early Renaissance sources green is referred to as the colour of lightness in love. Various classical and pop musicians have recorded versions of "Greensleeves": among them, English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, and American jazz saxophonist John Coltrane. As far as I know, none of the kings listed as incorrect choices have ever been believed to have written a song. In any case, Edward II lived well before the time "Greensleves" became popular.

3. For what is Gretna Green (located in southern Scotland) best known?

From Quiz How Green Was My Quiz

Answer: Weddings

Gretna Green (located close to the England/Scotland border) was traditionally one of the most popular locations for weddings in the United Kingdom. The reason for this was differences between English laws and Scottish laws about marriage, with Scottish laws being more lax after the 1754 Marriage Act came into effect in England. Later in the 18th century, infrastructure improvements made Gretna Green more easily accessible from England. [Question contributed by bernie73.]

4. What shade of green is named the same as a publisher of romance novels?

From Quiz Ten Shades of Green

Answer: Harlequin

Harlequin is recognized as one of the largest publishers of romance literature in the world. The other options are also romance publishers, but their names aren't used for variants of the color green.

5. Which sport would you be playing if when you won you were awarded a green jacket?

From Quiz The Grass Is Always Greener

Answer: Golf

The winner of the Masters Golf Tournament, played in Augusta, Georgia, is awarded a green jacket. This custom was started in 1949. The winner of the jacket must return the jacket to the clubhouse at the start of the following year's tournament. It is considered to be one of the greatest trophies to be earned in the sport of golf.

6. To obtain a green pigment for their paintings, early artists utilised which chemical element to produce verdigris?

From Quiz Let's Not Be Mean to Green

Answer: Copper

Cobalt and zinc were also used at a later date. To produce the verdigris, copper plates were suspended over a pot of vinegar. The pot was sealed and then heated until green crusts formed on the copper plates. Another method used was copper strips placed on pieces of wood, covered in acetic acid, and then buried in dung for several weeks until the verdigris developed. I prefer the former method myself.

7. The colour green is most associated with which emotion?

From Quiz Have You Ever Been Green?

Answer: Envy

Also known as invidiousness, envy is a feeling of desire to have something that someone else has. The phrase "green-eyed monster" refers to envy, and is based on a line from "Othello", one of Shakespeare's great tragedies. Many confuse envy with jealousy, but they are two different emotions: jealousy is associated with negative feelings over the loss (or potential loss) of something that someone values.

8. The word "green" is closely related to an Old English verb which means what?

From Quiz More Than One Shade of Green

Answer: to grow

Green is closely related to the Old English verb "gowan", which means "to grow". The word green can also be used to describe someone who is inexperienced, sick, or jealous, among other meanings.

9. An old saying goes "I'm not as green as I am cabbage looking". What does it mean?

From Quiz Go Green!

Answer: I'm not as naive as I look.

I've known and used this saying all my life thanks to my grandmother. As cabbages are green and to be "green" is to be unknowing, or naive, it is the same as saying "I'm not as gullible as I look".

10. ANIMALS: What determines the sex of the green turtles' offspring?

From Quiz Green by Categories

Answer: Incubation temperature

Turtle eggs incubate for approximately two months after they have been laid on the beach. The temperature during this time will determine the sex of the hatchling. Below a certain temperature (this may vary depending on the location) the eggs produce males and above it, females. The green turtle is the largest of the hard-shelled marine turtles. It is an endangered species that is found in warm oceans all over the world. Unlike most sea turtles they are herbivorous, this is what is believed to give them the greenish coloured fat after which they are named.

11. A green gem is an emerald. What month has emerald for its birthstone?

From Quiz Going for the Green

Answer: May

The emerald is rare and valuable. The name comes from the Old French 'esmeralde', which means 'green gemstone'. Emeralds were used and valued by the Egyptians as well as the Aztecs and Incans.

12. Jane wishes to make the colour green using her paintbox of red, blue and yellow paints. Which paints should she mix?

13. What is the name of the European country, located on an island that has the nickname "Emerald Isle"?

From Quiz There Is Green all Over the World

Answer: Republic of Ireland

Ireland, also known as the Republic of Ireland, occupies about 80% of the island called Ireland. It is a sovereign state, bordering Northern Ireland and bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. The island of Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle for its green vegetation, due to constant rains. The climate is defined as temperate oceanic, humid and unstable, with abundant rainfall and mild temperatures.

14. With which "green" song did Booker T. & the M.G.'s hit the charts in 1962?

From Quiz How Green Was My Quiz

Answer: Green Onions

Formed in 1962, the group consisted of Booker T. Jones on the Hammond organ, Al Jackson on drums, Lewie Steinberg on bass guitar, and Steve Cropper as the lead guitarist. Originally, "Green Onions" was issued as the B-side to another track, titled "Behave Yourself", but following much acclaim from listeners, it was quickly re-issued as the A-side. The song peaked at Number Three in the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1962, then 18 years later, in 1980, entered the UK singles charts, where it stayed for 12 weeks following its inclusion in the soundtrack of the film "Quadrophenia". [Question contributed by moonraker2.]

15. Imagine a green vase on a green table in a place of worship with interior and exterior green elements. The traditional colour of which religion is green?

From Quiz The Green Vase

Answer: islam & mosque & muslim & moslem

From Quiz A Certain Shade of Green

Answer: seafoam green

Although some myths indicate two parents and a normal birth for the goddess Aphrodite, the most common story of her creation involves her rising up from the seafoam as a fully-formed adult, floating on a scallop shell. This is depicted in Sandro Botticelli's famous painting "The Birth of Venus".

17. To produce green sparks in fireworks, what do the manufacturers use?

From Quiz Let's Not Be Mean to Green

Barium chlorate, Barium nitrate crystals and Barium chloride are used. Though it seems as though it would be logical to use copper salts to produce green fireworks, these actually produce a blue colour instead.

From Quiz Have You Ever Been Green?

Answer: Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a compound found in every plant that helps to create energy for the plant through photosynthesis. Although not every plant may look green, they all contain the chlorophyll pigment.

The movie follows the two men as Edgecomb discovers that Coffey has an amazing healing power.

22. What country is known as "The Emerald Isle"?

From Quiz Going for the Green

Answer: Ireland

The name comes from its lush and fertile fields. The first humans to set foot in Ireland came from Scotland 8000BC. It was one of the last places in Europe to be settled by humans. The Celts reached Ireland around 300 BC. Because the Romans didn't reach Ireland, they escaped the 'darkness' of the Dark Ages. Their preservation of language and culture helped the rest of Europe to recover. St. Brendan is reputed to have sailed to America from Ireland in the early 6th century, predating Columbus by nearly 1,000 years.

24. The celebration of which saint is linked to the color green?

From Quiz There Is Green all Over the World

Answer: Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was a fifth-century Roman-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. The legend says that he used the shamrock or three-leafed clover to explain the Holy Trinity to pagans. Over the years the saint became associated with both Catholic Ireland and the identity of Ireland itself. Subsequently, St. Patrick is a patriotic symbol along with the color green and the shamrock. That is why it has become common to wear green clothes, accessories and shamrocks to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, ‪March 17‬, since the 18th century.

25. What chemical element was named after a Greek word meaning "pale green"?

From Quiz Green Is the Colour

Answer: chlorine

With an atomic number of 17, chlorine (Cl) belongs to the halogen ("salt-producing") group of the periodic table of chemical elements. It was discovered in 1774 by Carl Willem Scheele, a Swedish chemist, who thought it was a compound of oxygen. In 1810, it received its current name from English chemist Humphry Davy: "chlorine" comes from the Greek word "chloros" (pale green), referring to its green-yellow colour when at room temperature. A highly reactive element like all halogens, chlorine is very dangerous in high concentrations, and many of its compounds tend to be toxic or corrosive. However, its most common compound is sodium chloride, also known as salt - an essential ingredient in food preparation and preservation.
