Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Start with the word for a furry feline friend.

Answer: cat

The cats you and I know are housecats, also called domestic cats. They are divided into many breeds that you can learn about in the Dogs and Cats for Kids subcategory of the For Children category and the Cats subcategory of the Animals category here at Fun Trivia. Housecats are interesting to learn about and, more importantly, they can be very good friends for humans.

Their distant cousins, like cheetahs, panthers and lions, who live in wilderness areas, nature preserves and zoos, are very beautiful but deadly dangerous. There are many species of these cats and their natural habitat covers five of the seven continents on Earth. Only Antarctica and Australia have no native cats.
2. Change a letter to make a word for what you wear on your head or put on a bottle.

Answer: cap

A cap is a particular type of hat, like the ones worn by baseball players or bus drivers. A cap can also be a part you put on an open container, like a bottle or a toothpaste tube, to close it.
3. Change a letter to make a word for something Mum or Dad drives (Ford, Toyota or Jaguar for example).

Answer: car

A car, also called an automobile because it moves itself without help from horses or other animals, is a motor vehicle. Though cars can be either big or little, they are made to carry only a few passengers. Very large vehicles, like buses, are made to carry many passengers. On road trips, it's fun to watch the other cars and see the different colors, sizes and makes.
4. Change a letter to make a word for a container, usually made of metal, for storing food.

Answer: can

When I was a little girl, cans were mostly made of tin. Nowadays they seem mostly to be made of aluminum.
5. Change a letter to make the word that goes in the blank. If you are for something, you are pro. If you are against it, you are ___.

Answer: con

'Pro' and 'con' are Latin words meaning 'for' and 'against' that are used in English. They are most familiar in the phrase 'pros and cons', which is a quick way of saying 'the arguments for and against'.
6. Change a letter to make a nickname that is short for Ronald.

Answer: Ron

Though it is now used throughout the English-speaking world, Ronald was originally a Scottish name. It developed from a Norse name that the Vikings brought with them to Scotland. It is related to the first names Reginald and Reynaldo and to the last name Reynolds.

Ron Weasley is Harry's best friend in the "Harry Potter" books by J.K. Rowling.
7. Change a letter to make a word that means to propel a boat with oars.

Answer: row

Boat rowing is not only a way to get from here to there, it is also good exercise and fun. People often row for relaxation or in races. By contrast, the kind of rowing that is arguing is not fun at all.

Words like 'row' that change their meaning when they are pronounced differently are called heteronyms. Other common heteronyms are lead and sow.
8. Change a letter to make a word for a tool you use for fishing.

Answer: rod

A fishing rod can also be called a fishing pole.

Sometimes people go fishing not so much to catch fish as to relax and enjoy themselves in the quiet of Nature.
9. Change a letter to make a word for what happens to organic material like food or wood when it decays.

Answer: rot

When something rots it disintegrates. That is to say, it stops being whole and solid. Eventually, it will break down entirely.
10. Change a letter to make a word for a rodent that may be kept as a pet or work helping scientists in a laboratory.

Answer: rat

Not all rats are domesticated, that is spending their lives being people's companions and helpers. Wild rats often live in garbage dumps, abandoned buildings and other dangerous places. Such rats can be dangerous themselves.

Still, you can meet good rats in books. Rat, Mole and Badger are the main characters in Kenneth Grahame's lovely novel "The Wind in the Willows, while in "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH" by Robert C. O'Brien a colony of super-intelligent rats help a field mouse family with a sick baby escape when the field they live in is going to be plowed.
