Hard Trivia on Everything Trivia Questions

1. How many species of rhinoceros exist?

From Quiz
How Good is Your General Ignorance Again?

Answer: 5

Living in different parts of Africa and Asia, the five species of rhinoceros are the White, Black, Indian, Javan and Sumatran kinds. Both the White and the Black rhinoceros live in Africa and are actually greyish in colour. It may be that 'white' is from the Afrikaans word 'wyd', meaning wide - a reference to the shape of its mouth. The White rhinoceros also has a square upper lip while the Black rhinoceros has a hooked upper lip.

2. John F. Kennedy - Lyndon B. Johnson - Richard M. Nixon: These were the first three US presidents in order who were born in the 20th Century. Who was next?

From Quiz What Happened Next? - The Sequel

Answer: Gerald R. Ford

Kennedy was born in 1917 and was 35th president, serving from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. Johnson was born in 1908 and was 36th president from being sworn in to succeed Kennedy in November 1963 until January 1969. Nixon was born in 1913 and served from January 1969 until he resigned in disgrace in August 1974. Ford, the 38th president, was born in 1913 and succeeded Nixon, serving until January 1977.

3. The Holy Bible is divided into the 'Old' and 'New' Testaments. Within the King James Bible, can you tell how many books there are in the New Testament?

From Quiz JJ's Mixed Trivia III

Answer: 27

The New Testament focuses on the life of Jesus Christ and of his early followers. It has a total of 27 books which are as follows: The four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, followed by the Acts of the Apostles, the twenty-one epistles, and finally Revelation.

4. What number is missing from the following sequence - 7, 8, 5, 5, 3, 4, 4, 6, _, 7, 8, 8? Think of something that is very well-known that consists of the same number of items as there are numbers (including the missing one) in this question.

From Quiz A Hodge Podge of Brain Teasers

Answer: 9

8. Who is regarded as the first European to establish a settlement in North America (excluding Greenland)?

From Quiz Look! An Easy Quiz With "Obscure" in the Title!

Answer: Leif Ericson

No, not Christopher Columbus -- he didn't even reach the main continent! Leif Ericson is generally credited with being the first European to "discover" America, doing so in approximately 1000 CE, nearly 500 years before Columbus. Leif's father, Eric the Red, founded a settlement in Greenland, which Leif used as a base to reach North America. Two Icelandic sagas describing Leif's explorations and achievements were passed down through oral history for hundreds of years before being written down, but it was unclear how reliable they were. However, in the 1960s, archaeologists discovered ruins of a Norse settlement from that time in Newfoundland, Canada, conclusively proving that the stories were not just an old wives' tale. Columbus was far more influential than Ericson -- after Columbus, many other explorers such as Cabot and Vespucci followed. But he was not the first.

11. A "chocolate bloom" may sound like a delicious flower but in reality it may not be quite so appealing. What is a "chocolate bloom"?

From Quiz A Miscellaneous Compilation

Answer: White spots appearing on the surface of chocolate

There are two kinds of chocolate bloom: fat bloom and sugar bloom. Fat bloom occurs when chocolate is not properly tempered, causing cocoa butter crystals of uneven size to form. Crystals of different sizes undergo different rates of transformation, giving rise to fat blooms over time. Sugar blooms occur when chocolate absorbs too much moisture from the surroundings and dissolves some of its sugar content. As the chocolate dries, some sugar crystallises on the surface, resulting in sugar blooms. Although chocolate blooms are unsightly, as a general rule they are safe for consumption.

12. In "Casablanca" (1942), after Rick (Humphrey Bogart) says his goodbye to his love Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), what does he say to Renault (Claude Rains)?

From Quiz Sorry, Wrong Answer (Part Four)

Answer: Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Misquotes are often the product of the person who first utilized the quote. "Casablanca" is one of the most-quoted films. One of the lines most closely associated with the film - "Play it again, Sam" - is a misquotation. When Ilsa first enters the Café Americain, she spots Sam and asks him to "Play it once, Sam, for old times' sake". Later, Rick says, "You played it for her, you can play it for me". "Here's looking at you, kid" was not in the script. It was an ad-lib by Bogart. Other memorable lines are "Round up the usual suspects", "we'll always have Paris", and "of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine".

17. Most newer vehicles use two-pronged automotive fuses to protect electrical systems from overload. How many amperes is a green colored fuse rated at?

From Quiz A Little About a Lot

Answer: 30

The fuses are colored differently, depicting the amp range of the fuse. For example, a five amp fuse would be colored amber, while a red fuse would reflect a 7.5 rating, green identifies 30 amps, etc. A five amp fuse would protect small drawing electrical systems such as a license plate light and instrument panel lighting, while a 30 amp fuse would protect a heavy-use circuit such as an air conditioning system. Checking a fuse is an easy step for a car owner in troubleshooting an electrical problem with a vehicle. In most cases, vehicle owners who do not know this, costs the owner a troubleshooting fee for a mechanic to change it, and could cost in excess of a day's pay. Located in the vehicle fuse box, there is a little visible metal strip inside a fuse, that when melted due to overload, will cause the circuit to stop working. It is a very easy owner-fix if they know this. One should also never replace a fuse with a different (or colored) amp rated fuse.

21. In chemistry, what would be the most appropriate name for the compound with the formula Al2O3?

From Quiz Trivia Gamut

Answer: Aluminum oxide

When an element, such as aluminum, has extra electrons, they will give them up. This will give them a positive charge. Elements like oxygen need electrons and will acquire electrons. This gives them a negative charge. When one element that needs them, takes electrons from an element with extra electrons, an ionic bond forms. Ionically bonded compounds are named by stating the positively charged part (aluminum) and then the negative with an -ide ending (oxide). Thus AlO3 would be aluminum oxide.
