Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In the Australian state of VICTORIA, one game stands above all others. It is not cricket or tennis or even football, but it is what makes this whole website exist. What is this game, which can be spelled using the letters in VICTORIA?

Answer: trivia

The word itself comes from the Latin and means 'where three ways meet'.
Did you know that the word 'trivia' is actually a plural? The singular is 'trivium'. Somehow 'funtrivium.com' does not sound right to me.
2. What is the name of a large container, usually containing liquid, that can be found amongst the letters in VICTORIA?

Answer: VAT

VAT is also an acronym for 'Value Added Tax' which is a type of sales tax collected by many governments around the world.
3. Peter, Paul and Mary, the Three Tenors, the Dixie Chicks are examples of what type of musical group? The answer can be found in the letters of VICTORIA.

Answer: TRIO

'Trio' comes from the Latin word for 'three' and can be found in lots of related words- tricycle, trimester, trinity, triangle, etc.
4. What Anglican parish priest can be found in the letters of VICTORIA?

Answer: VICAR

The word 'vicar' has an interesting etymological history, starting with the Latin 'vicarius', meaning 'substitute' or 'deputy', denoting that a vicar was a 'vicar'-ious substitute for God. Today, a vicar is more likely to maintain a small parish, or to be a type of secretary to a bishop.
5. 'Thespian', 'artiste', 'mummer' and 'performer' and all synonyms for which profession, the letters of which can be found in VICTORIA?

Answer: actor

A mummer was an actor that performed in folk plays, mainly in England and Ireland. 'Thespian' originates from the name 'Thespis', an ancient Greek playwright.
6. Proverbially, which person 'gets the spoils'? The answer can be found in VICTORIA and is also one of the letters in the phonetic alphabet.

Answer: victor

It is a male name and means 'winner' or 'conquerer'. It is also Dr Frankenstein's first name!
7. In the oceans bordering Victoria you may find this rather large marine mammal. Using the letter in VICTORIA, please tell me what type of critter Keiko, who starred in the movie, 'Free Willy, was.

Answer: orca

Orcas, or killer whales, are widespread in the world's oceans, but seem to be more plentiful in the northern Pacific and Atlantic. Keiko was captured in 1979 and died in 2003.
8. What word can be used to describe a type of welding and also a part of a curve? You will find the answer in the letters of VICTORIA.

Answer: arc

In astronomy, an arc is the apparent path taken by a planetary body. Arc welding uses the heat generated by electricity to fuse metal together.
An arc is also an archaic word for 'arch'.
9. What word is used in mathematics to describe the relationship between two numbers? The common format can be expressed as A:B, and the answer can be found in the letters of VICTORIA.

Answer: ratio

The Golden Ratio, also known as the Golden Mean, has intrigued mathematicians and artists for centuries. Artwork in the ratio of 1.618:1 is apparently more pleasing to the eye. It can also be related to my favourite group of numbers, the Fibonacci sequence- divide each Fibonacci by its predecessor in the series, and you will come closer and closer to 1.618.
10. This is the last question of this quiz, so I will use it to say goodbye. There is a high percentage of Italians in Melbourne, so, using the letters of VICTORIA, how would an Italian say 'goodbye'?

Answer: ciao

Lygon Street in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton is very well known as a epicure's delight, with several blocks of mainly Italian restaurants to choose from and red, white and green colouring everywhere.
