Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The colors of a bumblebee; a Wiz Khalifa song

Answer: Black and Yellow

Bumblebees are yellow and black insects that can be found around the world. They are indigenous to North and South America, Europe and Asia but have spread to Africa and Oceania. Their primary role is to be pollinators of flowers and plants.

"Black and Yellow" is a popular song by Wiz Khalifa that debuted on his album "Rolling Papers" in 2010. It reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Charts for 2010-2011.
2. A power tools and appliance company founded in 1910 by S. Duncan and Alonzo

Answer: Black & Decker

Black & Decker was founded in Towson, Maryland in 1910 by S. Duncan Black and Alonzo Decker. The two had been coworkers for a telegraph company when they started their own small machine business. It wasn't until 1917 that the company started to boom when they invented a electric drill. Today, the company is officially called Stanley Black & Decker since it merged with Stanley Works in 2010, but is still popularly called Black & Decker.
3. New Orleans Saints colors; A song by Sam Sparro

Answer: Black and Gold

Black and gold have been the Saints' team colors since their inception, however the original owner, John W. Mecom Jr., wanted blue uniforms. He instead switched to black and gold as a reference to black gold or oil, the industry where he made his money.

"Black and Gold" is a popular song by Australian artist Sam Sparro from his album "Sam Sparro". The love song peaked at number four on the Australian charts.
4. One of the largest companies in the United States, it's an engineering and infrastructure firm founded in 1915

Answer: Black & Veatch

Black & Veatch was founded in Kansas City in 1915 by Ernest Bateman Black and Nathan Thomas Veatch. The company started out small but by World War II, it grew considerably as it was asked to build a number of army bases and camps within the U.S. Ever since, Black& Veatch has been at the forefront of new American infrastructure and building projects, including buildings for the Atomic Energy Commission.
5. A beer cocktail made with Guinness; A type of dog coat; A former British military force

Answer: Black and Tan

A black and tan is a beer cocktail made by blending two different types of beer, usually one pale and one dark. Usually the dark stout is Guinness. When blended, the dark stout rises to the top while the pale ale falls to the bottom. In Ireland, where the drink is popular, it is called a half and half.

Black and tan dog coats are seen on a variety of canines, most popularly the Rottweiler. The black and tan is also sometimes called liver and tan or blue and tan.

The Black and Tans were formed in 1919 by Winston Churchill. Their main goal was to fight against the Irish Republican Army during the Irish War of Independence. Their official name was the Royal Irish Constabulary Special Reserve and they disbanded in 1922.
6. A black and red elephant shrew; Also, a black and red warbling finch

Answer: Black and Rufous

Black and rufous coloration refers to red and black patterns seen on certain species. Most of these black and rufous animals live in dark, wooded places so their coloration allows them to blend into their surroundings. The black and rufous elephant shrew lives primarily in Kenya but can also be found in U.S. zoos in an attempt to boost their dwindling population.

The black and rufous warbling finch is found in the jungles of South America, generally in areas of high elevation.
7. Describes old TV and movies; A cookie sometimes called a half moon

Answer: Black and White

Black and white television is properly called monochrome. The first national color broadcast in the U.S. occurred in 1954 for that year's Rose Bowl Parade. However, it was not until 1972 that all the daytime networks broadcasted in full color.

The black and white cookie was invented in New York but it is unknown when exactly. Although in modern jargon the terms are used interchangeably, the black and white cookies is not technically the same thing as a half moon. The black and white is a vanilla cookie base and a half-moon is a chocolate base. Either way, they both are decorated half with vanilla and half with chocolate icing or fondant.
8. A hideous bruise; A 2000 Backstreet Boys album

Answer: Black & Blue

Bruises are sometimes called black and blue in reference to their color. The coloration comes from minor internal bleeding that appears black and bluish under the skin.

The Backstreet Boys album "Black & Blue" debuted in 2000. It was extremely popular and sold a then record 1.6 million albums in the U.S. and over five million worldwide.
9. A brand of cigars that "tastes great, smells great".

Answer: Black & Mild

Black & Mild is a brand of cigars made in Pennsylvania. The brand is famous for its filter and black/brown wrapping. It has the slogan "tastes great, smells great" because it is said that the smoke produced from one has a sweet aroma to it.
10. A financial model used to sometimes determine price variation. It is usually used for stocks in Europe.

Answer: Black & Scholes

The Black & Scholes or Black-Scholes model was developed by Fisher Black and Myron Scholes in 1973. Myron Scholes won the 1997 Nobel Prize in Economics for his work in determining market derivatives along with Robert Merton. While the formula has been tweaked by many economic scientists since then, this formula still serves as the basic for other formulas in risk management. One notable criticism is that the Black & Scholes model does not account for future volatility of a stock or investment.
