Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Start with a word that means incorrect.

Answer: Wrong

Douglas Corrigan was an aviator who flew a single engine plane non-stop from California to New York in 1938. This in itself was not so remarkable at the time. However, on the journey that was supposed to be back to California, he instead ended up flying to Ireland claiming he lost his way and his compass malfunctioned.

This earned him the nickname of "Wrong Way" Corrigan. Authorities suspected it was intentional as he was earlier denied permission to carry out this flight.
2. Drop a letter and rearrange to form a word meaning something used or tired.

Answer: Worn

Worn can also be used to describe something that has been used excessively and is now not in top shape.
3. Lose one more letter and scramble to form a word meaning a fight.

Answer: Row

Row is also used to describe the alignment of people or things in a straight line.
4. Drop another letter and anagram to form a word that gives you a choice.

Answer: Or

Or is used along with either to indicate a choice between different alternatives.
5. Lose another letter to get the letter of the alphabet on Rwanda's former flag.

Answer: R

Rwanda secured independence from Belgium in 1962. The first flag adopted was a tricolour with vertical stripes of red, yellow and green with a capital black R on it. The flag was changed in 2001 to disassociate with the genocide of the early 1990s.
6. Now add a letter to form the postal code for the smallest US state.

Answer: RI

Rhode Island is the smallest of the fifty US states and was the last of the original 13 colonies to become a state. Despite its name, it is not an island.
7. Add one more letter to get a word meaning to equip.

Answer: Rig

Rig can also be used to describe the clothes worn by a person.
8. Add another letter and anagram for a synonym of sand.

Answer: Grit

"True Grit" was a 1969 film in the western genre and starred John Wayne as U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn. Wayne won the Oscar for Best Actor for this performance.
9. Add another letter and anagram for a word meaning width.

Answer: Girth

Girth can also be used to describe a person's midriff, especially if they have a paunch.
10. Finally turn the letters around to get an antonym for left.

Answer: Right

In earlier times, the right or dexter side of the body was believed to be the honourable and morally correct one while the left or sinister side was considered evil. This unfairly resulted in left-handed people being viewed negatively and all efforts made to change them to using their right hand.
