Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is the 18th letter of the English alphabet?

There are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and the eighteenth letter of the English alphabet is R. The English alphabet is considered to be one of the hardest language alphabets around. Fun fact: there are 24 letters in the Greek alphabet!
2. Which of these numbers is a prime number?

Being considered a prime number, means the number is only divisible by itself and 1. The prime number is 29, as its factors are only 29 and 1.
3. What is the seventh planet from the sun in our solar system?

There are eight "true" planets in our solar system, Uranus marks the seventh planet from our sun. Pluto is considered a dwarf planet.
4. If somebody celebrated their 33rd birthday in 2015, in what year were they born?

If someone turned 33 in 2015, that would mean they were born in 1982. A way to figure this is to subtract 33 from 2015, which gives you 1982.
5. How many continents are there in the world?

There are seven continents in our world. They are, Africa, Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Australia (or Oceania) and Antarctica. There are many more countries than continents!
6. What is the Spanish word for the number 5?

The way you can say five in Spanish is "cinco". The numbers leading up to cinco are uno, dos, tres, quattro, and then cinco!
7. What do we call the counting system that uses only 0 and 1?

The binary number system has a base of 2. That means that 2 digits (0 and 1) are used. This number system is basically the same as the decimal (base 10) number system.
8. What is the equivalent, in Fahrenheit, of 100 degrees centigrade?

To convert temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and multiply by .5556 (or 5/9).
9. The metric system is based on multiples of what number?

This system is called the "decimal based system", because it is based on the number 10. This also makes the system easy to use.
10. I am going to end with a tricky one! In the board game Scrabble, which is the only letter worth 5 points?

K is the only letter in Scrabble that you will achieve 5 points with. Q and Z are worth 10, and X and J are worth 8. It's pretty hard to make words out of the higher point letters!
