Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Our first GO is Gondola. A gondola is a type of boat, but in which Italian city would you find one?

Answer: Venice

Venice is a lovely city where instead of roads they have canals, so all of the public and private transport is by boat. At one time gondolas and their drivers, known as gondoliers, were used by most people. That was before engines. Now most boats, whether public transport or privately owned, have engines and gondolas are used mainly by visitors to Venice who think a ride in one is a romantic thing to do.
2. Our next GO is Gorgon. The gorgon were mythological creatures. The most famous one was Medusa. What did she have on her head instead of hair?

Answer: Snakes

There were three gorgons, and Medusa is the best known in legend. She had snakes on her head instead of hair, and anyone she looked at was instantly turned to stone. She was killed by Perseus. Instead of looking at her he polished his shield so he could use it as a mirror.

He then looked at her reflection instead of directly at her. By doing this he could cut her head off without being turned to stone.
3. Next we have a GO word that describes a young goose. What is it?

Answer: Gosling

A young goose is a gosling. When they are born they are small and fluffy. Their colour varies according to what species of goose they are. Some are yellow, like young chickens, some are black and white, others are a sort of browny yellow colour. Ones that are hatched naturally can swim for a little while almost immediately as contact with their mother transfers natural oils to them that waterproof them. Ones hatched in an incubator lack this contact and the natural oils, so they have to be introduced to water gradually as they won't be fully waterproof until they have their adult feathers.
4. Gorge is our next GO word. It means a narrow valley with steep walls. What is the name of a famous gorge in England, and a cheese associated with it?

Answer: Cheddar

Cheddar Gorge in Somerset is a very popular place for visitors. As well as lovely scenery there are also many caves in the gorge that you can go inside and look round. It is also famous for cheddar cheese. This is probably the most eaten cheese in England.

It comes in various strengths from mild to mature. It is found in pubs all over the country as part of a ploughman's lunch, which is bread, cheese, pickle and salad.
5. Goalkeeper is our next GO word. Lots of sports have a goalkeeper, perhaps one as shown in the picture, but which one of the following does NOT have one?

Answer: Tennis

Although a lot of sports do have a goalkeeper tennis is far from the only one that doesn't. Rugby doesn't have one, neither does badminton, or table tennis. In the main any sport that involves getting a ball or other object into the net of the opposing team will have someone defending that net.

They can be called goalkeeper, goal defender or anything else similar, but their role is always the same, to stop the other team from scoring.
6. Our next GO word is an animal. We can eat the meat, drink the milk, and use the skin and hair to make things with. What is it?

Answer: Goat

There are a lot of different types of goat. In some areas of the world they are kept for their meat and their milk the way we keep cows. Some people prefer to drink the milk from a goat instead of a cow because they think it is healthier. Some people who have an allergy to milk from cows can drink goat's milk instead. You can also make cheese and butter from their milk.

Some goats, like the Angora, have very fine silky coats that can be used to make very soft wool that is much in demand for jumpers and other garments. Goat skins can be used as rugs, or it can be turned into leather for bags, gloves and coats.
7. Now we have a GO word that is something pretty - Gossamer. Which mythical creature is sometimes described as having gossamer wings?

Answer: Fairy

Gossamer is a fabric which is light and delicate. It can also be used to describe the threads spun by spiders for their webs as well as thin, wispy clouds. In many books about fairies they are described as having gossamer wings, and pictures of them always show their wings as being very light and almost see through, but always very pretty.
8. Next we have a GO word that describes a very big ape. They live in African forests in big family groups. Which word is the right one?

Answer: Gorilla

Gorillas live in forested areas of Africa in family groups called troops. They will be led by a big male, who often has a silver coloured back. The rest of the family will be females, babies and young males. When the young males reach a certain age they will leave the group to start one of their own.

Despite their very large size they are quite gentle creatures and will rarely attack humans unless they are very threatened. Unfortunately, poaching and destruction of their habitat means that gorillas in the wild are now quite endangered.
9. Golf is our next GO word. Although the ball is hit with a club there are lots of different clubs used. What is the name of the one used to gently tap the ball into the hole?

Answer: Putter

Some of the names for various types of golf clubs are irons, drivers, woods, putters and niblicks. They all have a different purpose, and part of mastering the game is knowing which is the best club to use for each stroke. Once the ball is close to the hole, which is known as being on the green, a putter is normally used to gently tap the ball into the hole. If you are playing for fun you can carry and use as many clubs as you like. If you are playing in a competition however you can only have a maximum of 14 clubs with you.
10. Our last GO word is gossip. If someone is called a gossip what do they do a lot of?

Answer: Talking, usually about other people

A gossip is someone who talks a lot, usually about other people. Often they will tell other people things that have been told to them in confidence. Not all gossip is bad though. Often at a party or similar serious conversations are not something you want to have. In these instances general talk about various things and people can also be classed as gossip.
