Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Write your signature again

Answer: Quit your job

The common heteronym is 'resign'.

/ri-ˈzīn/ To quit or to give something up (like your job) is to resign. Admitting to defeat is resignation.

/rē-ˈsīn/ Writing your 'sign'ature over again is re'sign'ing. Typically only done if you have to reproduce a document (that requires a signature) after making changes.
2. One who avoids extremes

Answer: Preside over a meeting

The common heteronym is 'moderate'.

/ˈmä-d(ə-)rət/ Used as a noun or an adjective, someone who is (a) moderate avoids extremes, keeping to the middle or mediocre.

/ˈmä-də-ˌrāt/ Used as a verb, to moderate something is to preside over it, or to prevent it from reaching extremes.
3. An adult swine of the female persuasion

Answer: Plant seeds by scattering

The common heteronym is 'sow'.

/ˈsau̇/ A sow is the name for an adult female pig or hog (as well as a number of other animals, like bears, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, moles and jellyfish).

/ˈsō/ To sow (as a verb) means to plant seeds, both in the sense of plants and in other ways (like sowing suspicion or dissension).
4. Shut the door

Answer: Intimate and familiar

The common heteronym is 'close'.

/ˈklōz/ Generally used as a verb, to close something is to deny access or end something (close off or close down). It can also mean to draw nearer (to close with the enemy) or make complete (close a circuit).

/ˈklōs/ As an adjective, something that is close generally has proximity, whether physical (come close to me) or emotionally (close friends).
5. A period of time equalling 60 seconds

Answer: Very, very small

The common heteronym is 'minute'.

/ˈmi-nət/ A minute is one sixtieth of an hour, or one sixtieth of a degree (angular measurement). It can also be an short, indefinite period of time (wait a minute).

/mī-ˈnüt/ When something is minute, it is very small, even infinitesimal. In the same way, it can be something of insignificance (minutiae), or something you examine to close (minute) detail.
6. A bird associated with peace

Answer: Jumped head first

The common heteronym is 'dove'.

/ˈdəv/ A dove is type of pigeon, and sometimes can describe a person with relation to the association of a dove with peace (an opponent of war).

/ˈdōv/ The past tense of 'dive', which describes jumping head first (usually into water, but sometimes figuratively into an activity).
7. Largemouth, smallmouth or striped

Answer: The lowest male voice

The common heteronym is 'bass'.

/ˈbas/ Common varieties of freshwater bass are, as mentioned in the clue, largemouth, smallmouth and striped bass. There are also saltwater species, but both fresh- and saltwater bass are within the order Perciformes, or 'perch-like' fish.

/ˈbās/ As refers to pitch, the bass range is the low end of the spectrum, and applies to various instruments as well as the vocal range.
8. Repeatedly hit something with force

Answer: Self-serve restaurant dining

The common heteronym is 'buffet'.

/ˈbə-fət/ As a verb, to buffet something is to strike it repeatedly. This can be done by a hand, or along the lines of waves buffeting the shoreline or the wind buffeting a building.

/bə-ˈfā/ Usually used in terms of food, a buffet is a selection of meal options that are laid out on a table or counter for diners to select from, serving themselves.
9. Use oars to move a boat

Answer: A noisy quarrel

The common heteronym is 'row'.

/ˈrō/ As a verb, to row is to impel a boat using an oar. Pronounced the same way, row as a noun is an arrangement of things in a line (a row of houses).

/ˈrau̇/ Also used as a noun, but pronounced differently, a row is a noisy fight or quarrel.
10. A tractor used for threshing

Answer: Merge or blend together

The common heteronym is 'combine'.

/ˈkäm-ˌbīn/ When referring to a threshing machine, combine can be both a noun (the tractor) and a verb (the act of using the thresher).

/kəm-ˈbīn/ Used as a verb, to combine is to bring together, usually intermixed so as to make one new thing (like combining ingredients to make dough).
