Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The last three letters of an answer become the first three letters of the following answer. Eg: ApPLE, PLEntiFUL, FULsome. First word: Beginning with 'R', what is a rosier hue?

Answer: Redder

'As red as a rose' is a common saying but if the colour becomes more intense it is redder. While the correct usage is 'more red', 'redder' has made its way into the local vernacular in many countries.

'The apple is getting riper, it's redder than yesterday.'
2. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what term is given for taking a train off its tracks?

Answer: Derail

The last word was 'Redder', so this word must begin with 'DER'.

Just as upsetting a train and it leaving its rails, to 'throw a wrench into' something or have something go astray means it has derailed.

'The project derailed when it failed to get Government approval.'
3. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what is a physical illness?

Answer: Ailment

The last word was 'Derail', so this word must begin with 'AIL'.

'Ail' or 'to ail' is to be unwell: 'what ails you?' The noun is ailment and refers to any disease or disorder. It is not commonly used in modern language, passed over in favour of illness, bug, cold or flu.
4. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what is the first course of a meal?

Answer: Entree

The last word was 'Ailment', so this word must begin with 'ENT'.

Entree is a French word referring to the first course of a meal. Starter or appetizer are interchangeable with entree, but 'entree' is generally used in more upmarket restaurants, while more informal dining establishments may use 'starter'.
5. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, stunned by a shock or unbalanced is synonymous with which word?

Answer: Reeled

The last word was 'Entree', so this word must begin with 'REE'.

Wobble, stagger, stumble, lurch all refer to the action of losing your balance, and reeled (or 'to reel') with shock is the feeling of unbalance you have when receiving surprising (usually unwelcome) news. Reeled can also refer to the act of winding in fishing line (on a reel) or an old fashioned dance.
6. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what is a type of accounting book?

Answer: Ledger

The last word was 'Reeled', so this word must begin with 'LED'.

A ledger is a summary of all transactions pertaining to a business and the summary of credits and debits of the ledger is used to create a financial statement.
7. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what is a showy flower also known as an African Daisy?

Answer: Gerbera

The last word was 'Ledger', so this word must begin with 'GER'.

Gerbera is a genus of plants in the daisy family (Asteraceae) and named for German botanist Traugott Gerber. Gerberas are fairly large blooms with vibrant colours and are very popular as cut flowers.
8. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what is the rubber or plastic tip on a pencil?

Answer: Eraser

The last word was 'Gerbera', so this word must begin with 'ERA'.

An eraser (or rubber, depending on which country you are in) is used to remove pencil marks. They feel like rubber but are synthetic and more commonly made from vinyl or gum. Some pencils have a small eraser on one end, but they are generally inferior to a larger dedicated eraser.
9. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, what is a snake?

Answer: Serpent

The last word was 'Eraser', so this word must begin with 'SER'.

The term 'serpent' is more commonly used in mythology and religion, with modern languages using 'snake' in everyday language. The Serpent in the bible is responsible for tempting Adam and Eve, and Hydra is a mythological serpent killed by Heracles.
10. Final word, the twist. Beginning with the last three letters of the previous answer, which word is to be allowed admittance or to have recorded a transaction?

Answer: Entered

The last word was 'Serpent', so this word must begin with 'ENT'.

The past tense of enter or go into somewhere is 'entered'. You can enter a room or an institution such as university or the military: 'he entered active service'. Part of an accountant's job is to ensure all transactions are entered into the company's books.

The twist - the first word began with red, and red is the end of the final word.
