Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Used to transport ill people to hospital.

Answer: Ambulance

During ancient times, ambulances consisted of either a horse and cart or a litter suspended on two poles between horses.
The first ambulance powered by gasoline was the Palliser ambulance in 1905, a three wheeled vehicle that was named for Capt. John Palliser of the Canadian Militia.
While gasoline powered ambulances were originally converted versions of regular vehicles, most modern ambulances are now custom built.
2. Slow moving agricultural transport.

Answer: Tractor

The tractor is a hugely versatile tool in the agricultural world and farmers would certainly struggle without it.
The word tractor comes from the Latin "trahere", meaning "to pull" although today's tractors are used for much more than pulling attachments.
3. A flying machine with rotors

Answer: Helicopter

Some of the earliest designs for a helicopter were drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in the 1400s, but it wasn't until 1901 that what was probably the first heavier-than-air motor-driven flight carrying humans occurred.
This was the flight of Hermann Ganswindt's helicopter, which was two years before the first airplane flight by the Wright brothers in 1903.
4. Designed to operate underwater.

Answer: Submarine

Submarines are usually referred to as boats, not ships, no matter how big they are and some of them are huge.
The typhoon class submarines of the Russian navy are especially large, with the TK-208, known as the Dmitriy Donskoy measuring 175 metres (574 feet) in length.
The amount of food and supplies on board is usually the defining factor in determining how long a submarine can stay underwater, but as they generally stock a 90 day supply of food, three months underwater is not uncommon.
5. The main form of transport in Venice, Italy.

Answer: Gondola

As Venice is a city of canals, the gondola is the primary form of transport and has been since the 11th century.
A gondola is a long, flat bottomed rowing boat that is propelled by a gondolier, who stands and uses a single oar to ferry his passengers around the city.
Gondolas are also used as tourist attractions in several cities in the USA, including New Orleans, New York and Boston.
6. Has an inflatable rubber skirt. Works on water or land.

Answer: Hovercraft

Although ideas for the hovercraft had been around since the 18th century, it wasn't until the 1950s that the modern hovercraft was successfully developed by Christopher Cockerell.
Initially seen as a military vehicle, it became a craft for civilian use when none of the military branches could be convinced of its usefulness.
By the 1960s there were many hovercraft services around the UK, offering transport to various islands and as their versatility became more apparent they began to be used in more countries.
They can be used in rescues at sea, are especially useful in rescuing people trapped in deep mud and are used by the Canadian Coast Guard to break light ice. The US Postal Service even use a hovercraft to deliver mail in parts of Alaska which are often inaccessible by other means.
7. A car which comes with a driver and takes you door to door.

Answer: Taxi Cab

The first taxis were horse-drawn hackney carriages found in London and Paris in the early 17th century. By 1636, these were so popular that the first taxi rank for waiting carriages was installed on the Strand in London.
Battery powered cabs, known as hummingbirds, came to London towards the end of the 19th century and by 1903, gasoline powered cabs could be seen on the London streets.
New York, which is famous for its yellow cabs, saw its first gasoline-powered taxi shortly after London, in 1907 and there are now over 13,000 cabs in the city, with many of them now being hybrid or electric vehicles.
8. Two wheeled vehicle. Can have a sidecar fitted to carry an extra passenger.

Answer: Motorcycle

Motorcycles have been with us since the late 19th century, and while sidecars are not so popular any more, they were widely used up until the 1950s as a way of transporting people or goods cheaply.
During World War I, the British Army used sidecars as transport for machine guns and during World War II, they were used by the majority of countries involved as a fast, effective way of transporting supplies.
Motorcycle and sidecar combinations have also been used by police forces and roadside recovery organisations and there is also a racing series for them, although these racing models bear little resemblence to any you may see on the roads.
9. Very popular transport in deserts.

Answer: Camel

It is believed that humans first domesticated dromedary camels in Somalia and southern Arabia around 3000 BC, while bactrian were slightly later in Central Asia at approximately 2500 BC.
The way to tell the two species apart is quite easy, if a camel has one hump, it is a dromedary, while the two humped camels are bactrian.
Desert people not only use camels as transport, they are also vital givers of milk, meat and fur. Dried camel dung can even be used as a fuel for fires.
10. Pedal powered vehicle. Expensive models are used in the Tour de France.

Answer: Bicycle

Bicycles have been around in one form or another since the late 19th century, with the most recognisable early example probably being the penny farthing which was popular in the 1880s.
Many of us enjoy a cycle ride, but spare a thought for the riders of the Tour de France, who race over a distance of about 3,200 kilometres (2,000 miles) in three weeks.
The race which has flat stages, time trials and gruelling mountain stages started in 1903 and is the premier event in the cycling world.
