Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. When I'm bra-less I'm a monarch, but with a bra I will be slowing you down. What am I?

Answer: Braking

The bra-less word is king, a male leader known as a monarch. With bra added back to the word, it becomes braking, a means of slowing down a moving vehicle.
2. When I'm bra-less I'm a sleeveless jacket (in the USA) or an undershirt (in the UK), but with a bra I become the most courageous. What am I?

Answer: Bravest

A vest in the USA is the equivalent of what the English call a waistcoat, which is a sleeveless top usually worn over a shirt and part of a three piece formal suit. In the UK, a vest is worn under the shirt for extra warmth. The bravest person is the one who shows the greatest valour when under pressure.
3. When I'm bra-less I'm a school of Buddhism, but with a bra I am bold and shameless. What am I?

Answer: Brazen

Zen Buddhism originated in China about fifteen centuries ago, where it is known as Ch'an Buddhism. The name of Zen comes from the Japanese version of the name. Brazen can be used to describe someone who is bold or impudent, often used in the expression 'brazen hussy'. It can also mean something made of brass, as in 'brazen image' which has a much less pejorative implication.
4. When I'm bra-less I can be the abbreviation for a business in the UK, or for a US state, but with a bra I become a reptile. What am I?

Answer: Cobra

Co. is the abbreviation for company in the UK, and CO is short for Colorado in the USA. It can also stand for Commanding Officer, cobalt or carbon monoxide as well as several other possibilities. A cobra is one of the most easily identifiable of the world's venomous snakes. The name comes from its ability to spread its neck to form the characteristic hood.
5. When I'm bra-less I mean to come or join together for a common purpose, or I can be a workers' organisation in the UK, but with a bra I become a silicate mineral containing manganese. What am I?

Answer: Braunite

Unite can mean to bring parts together to make a whole, or to combine people with shared interests. It is sometimes used to describe marriage, as to unite a man and woman. It is also the name of a British trade union which represents transport workers. Braunite is a dark mineral, which can be greyish black, brownish grey or dark brownish black. It was named after a German alderman.
6. When I'm bra-less I am part of the human psyche, but with a bra I am interwoven strands of hair or material. What am I?

Answer: Braid

Freud described the id as being the basic driving force of the human psyche, governed by instinct, with the ego representing realism and the super-ego being the conscience. Note that this is a simplified explanation, as this isn't a science quiz. A braid can also be called a plait, when applied to hair, and consists of various strands of hair intertwined together. The same technique can be used to create rope or decorative braids used to adorn clothing.
7. When I'm bra-less I'm a unit of luminous intensity, but with a bra I become a collection of decorative stands for holding wax cylinders. What am I?

Answer: Candelabra

A candela is one of the SI (International System of Units) base units, with others including the metre for length and the Kelvin for temperature. The luminous intensity is a measure of the power from a light source. A candelabrum is a single holder for several candles, with candelabra being the plural, although the latter term is usually used for both.
8. When I'm bra-less I'm one of the compass points, but with a bra I become a Scottish word meaning the finest or most splendid. What am I?

Answer: Brawest

West is the direction opposite to east on a compass and the direction in which the sun sets. It can also be used as shorthand for the countries in the western part of the world. Braw is a Scottish variation of the word brave, but used in the sense of finery or showiness, so brawest would apply to the most colourfully dressed person.
9. When I'm bra-less I'm a name shared by sportsmen Carter and Lombardi, but with a bra I become the state of being bright or pulsating with life. What am I?

Answer: Vibrance

This is probably the trickiest one I've given you, as 'bra' is in the middle of the word rather than the beginning or end. Vince Carter played basketball for the Dallas Mavericks, and Vince Lombardi was a well known American football coach. Vibrant is used to describe something which is vibrating, as in the string on a musical instrument, or someone who is vigorous and energetic. Vibrance refers to anything or anyone possessing these qualities.
10. When I'm bra-less I'm a high-pitched buzzing sound made by something moving swiftly, but with a bra I become a method of joining metal by using heat. What am I?

Answer: Brazing

Zing is the sound made by twanging the string on a musical instrument, or by a fast moving object such as an arrow. Brazing is similar to soldering but uses higher temperatures. Various metals can be used for brazing, including silver alloys, brass or bronze.

Quiz-writing can be a difficult venture, more or less, but some of our brave authors opted in to receive a title in May 2012 that tested their focus. In addition to receiving a title with the word 'More' or 'Less' in the name, they were also restricted for category choices; those with a 'More' title had to use one of three categories given with the title and those with a 'Less' title had to use anything but the three categories given.
