Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Peeping

Answer: Tom

This term is believed to have originated in England. According to the story, Lady Godiva of Coventry was against the high taxes raised by her husband on tenants of the land. When she protested, she was made to ride through the streets of Coventry naked. The town's people all averted their eyes to preserve her honour, except for Tom who according to legend, peeked at the noblewoman.
2. Big

Answer: Ben

Big Ben is the nickname for a bell inside the clock tower at the Palace of Westminster in London which chimes the hour. Often the term is used to refer to the clock itself.
3. Average

Answer: Joe

Average Joe is used to describe a normal, everyday guy with no extra-ordinary abilities or talents. The term was mainly used in North America before the usage spread to other places.
4. Dear

Answer: John

'Dear John' is a term used for a letter written by a girl to a boy breaking off a romantic relationship. It is believed that the term became popular during World War II when boys serving in the army overseas received such letters.
5. Smart

Answer: Alec

A smart alec, sometimes also spelled as smart aleck, is a term used for an annoying person who appears to know-it-all. It could also be used for someone always making sarcastic quips or one who comes across as cocky.

Uncle Sam is a popular symbol for the United States of America. A figure of a man in formal attire with long white hair was commonly used on posters in earlier days stating "Uncle Sam needs you" to encourage people to participate in various government initiatives.
7. Doubting

Answer: Thomas

This term is derived from the Bible. The Apostle Thomas refused to believe that Jesus had risen from the dead when the other disciples told him of the resurrection. Jesus then appeared to him and asked him to touch his nail pierced hands, following which Thomas fell at his feet and worshipped him.
8. Even

Even Steven is used to describe a situation where both sides are equally balanced. It can also be used to denote a tie in sport.
