Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The colour green is most associated with which emotion?

Answer: Envy

Also known as invidiousness, envy is a feeling of desire to have something that someone else has. The phrase "green-eyed monster" refers to envy, and is based on a line from "Othello", one of Shakespeare's great tragedies. Many confuse envy with jealousy, but they are two different emotions: jealousy is associated with negative feelings over the loss (or potential loss) of something that someone values.
2. The green pigment found in all plants is called what?

Answer: Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a compound found in every plant that helps to create energy for the plant through photosynthesis. Although not every plant may look green, they all contain the chlorophyll pigment. The most common form of this pigment is chlorophyll A, which, for the science fans, has a molecular formula of C55H72O5N4Mg.
3. In which of these sports will you find a green?

Answer: Golf

In golf, the green is the area of grass around the hole, deliberately closely mown to allow for easy putting. All golfers will try to get the ball onto or as close to the green as possible in their first shot to enable them to get a score on or below par. On some golf courses, there may be a separate putting green for players to practice their putting skills.
4. Which American actor played the role of Scott, Dr. Evil's son in the "Austin Powers" series, and is also the co-creator of the television series "Robot Chicken"?

Answer: Seth Green

Seth Green is a respected American comedian who has enjoyed success in his career. He, along with Matt Senreich, created the television series "Robot Chicken", which uses dolls and small toys in the sketches. Green is also known for his role as Chris Griffin, the dim-witted son of the Griffin family in "Family Guy".
5. Reverend Green (or Mr. Green) appears as a character in which popular board game?

Answer: Cluedo (Clue)

One of the most famous board games in the world, "Cluedo", or "Clue" as it is known in same places, is a mystery game in which players must try to guess who committed the murder of Dr. Black (or Mr. Boddy). In order to win the game, the player must correctly identify the culprit, where in the mansion it took place, and what the murder weapon was.

For example, the solution could be Colonel Mustard in the conservatory with the lead piping.
6. Greenland is physiographically considered part of which continent?

Answer: North America

Although some may argue that Australia is the world's largest island, it is in fact a continent as well, and that distinguishes it from Greenland. Greenland holds the title as the world's largest island that isn't a continent. Contrary to its name, it is blanketed in white snow for most of the year, due to its proximity to the Arctic Circle.

Despite it being controlled by Denmark, it is considered part of North America, because it is closer to Canada than it is to Europe.
7. Which metal is used to give fireworks a green colour?

Answer: Barium

Located in Group 2 of the Periodic Table of the Elements, barium is an alkaline earth metal with an atomic number of 56. It is used in fireworks, typically as barium nitrate, to give them a greenish hue. Other notable uses for barium include barium carbonate, a rat poison; barium peroxide, used when welding rail tracks together as a catalyst to start an aluminothermic reaction; and perhaps most commonly as an agent which removes traces of oxygen and other gases from vacuum tubes (such as a cathode ray tube).
8. Which of these precious gemstones is coloured green?

Answer: Emerald

Of these four precious gemstones, the emerald is the one coloured green. Lapis lazuli is known for its striking blue hues, the amethyst for its deep purple colours, and ruby for its amorous red tones. Emeralds are part of the beryl group of minerals, and its colour comes from trace amounts of vanadium and chromium.
9. Which African country's flag was completely green prior to its civil uprising beginning in 2011?

Answer: Libya

Located at the very top of Africa, Libya borders six other countries and the Mediterranean Sea. Its capital city (and also largest city) is Tripoli, which comes from the Greek for 'three cities'. Prior to its redesign which hearkened back to previous flags, the plain green flag was the only one in the world to be one solid colour with no other designs or symbols on it.
10. On the electromagnetic spectrum, what is the approximate wavelength of the colour green?

Answer: 500 nm

For the physics buffs, this would have been an easy question. But for others, it may have required a bit of research. The wavelength for each colour ranges between two points. For the purposes of this question, I have tried to give an approximate median value.

At 400nm, the light will have a distinct violet colour; at 600nm, we will be able to see the colour orange; and at 700nm, close to the boundary between the visible spectrum and the infra-red spectrum, we get red light. Thus, at 500nm, we will see green light.
