Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Red

Answer: Scare

"Red Scare" refers to a period of time in the US when there was an excessive fear of Communism. The colour red is associated with Communists globally which led to this term. The first wave was in the early 20th century while a second wave occurred in the 1950s. With the rise of the USSR, it was felt in some quarters that democracy would be at risk of falling to communism.
2. Scarlet

Answer: Pimpernel

"The Scarlet Pimpernel" is a novel by Baroness Orczy set during the French Revolution. The eponymous hero leads a double life - a lazy aristocrat by day, and swashbuckling rescuer of the English in his secret life.
3. Green

Answer: Horn

The term greenhorn is used to describe a newbie or inexperienced person. Green typically refers to fruit or vegetables that are yet to mature.
4. Silver

Answer: Spoon

A person born with a silver spoon is one born into a life of wealth and luxury. It is often also used derisively to indicate that the status was not earned, but rather inherited.
5. Ivory

Answer: Tower

If a person is described as living in an ivory tower, it is usually taken to mean that they are removed from the daily hardship of life. It is sometimes used negatively for academicians to indicate that their theories are not of practical use.
6. Gold

8. Gray

The term gray area is generally used in legal or philosophical terms. It could refer to an activity which while not being completely legal or moral, is not completely illegal or immoral and straddles the fine line between the two.
9. Pink

Answer: Elephant

A "pink elephant" is a hallucination brought on by an alcohol induced hangover. Earlier snakes were used to describe this hallucination. Henry Wallace Phillips possibly made the first written reference to a pink elephant in this context in "Fables of our Times" in the late 19th century.

A coral reef is an environment found undersea consisting of reefs built by colonies of corals. The most famous among these is the Great Barrier Reef found off the coast of Queensland in Australia.
