Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Bones

Answer: Osteo

The prefix "OSTEO" comes from Greek and means "bone" and often is used in medicine and anatomy for issues and conditions that involve the BONES. The human body has 206 bones, so these issues are often important to people. Osteoporosis is a condition most often found in the elderly where the matter in bones deteriorates and becomes fragile.
2. Bored

Answer: Ennui

Strictly speaking, the French term "ENNUI" is a synonym of "boredom" rather than the adjective "bored". All of the terms refer to the idea that an individual finds time to be passing slowly and the lack of "something to do" has made the situation seem dull or tedious. The idea of boredom or ennui can be traced back in writing at least as far as the eighteenth century.
3. Dinah

Answer: Alice

ALICE, the titular character of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There", had a cat named DINAH. Though the cat is referenced several times in the first book, her main on-screen appearance occurs in the early parts of the second book with two of her kittens, a white kitten named Snowdrop, and a black kitten who is referred to as Kitty. Though Alice is apparently fond of Dinah, her descriptions of the cat are generally viewed negatively by the residents of Wonderland.
4. Falls

Answer: Idaho

Idaho FALLS, Twin FALLS, and Post FALLS are all important cities within the state of IDAHO. Idaho Falls is the county seat for Bonneville County, Idaho. Twin Falls is the county seat for Twin Falls County, Idaho. Post Falls is the county seat for Kootenai County, Idaho. Near Twin Falls is where Evel Knievel attempted to jump Snake River Canyon in 1974.
5. Greek

Answer: Ionia

The term "IONIA" refers to part of the west coast of the Anatolian Peninsula, which was once an area of GREEK settlement in ancient times. The area was not always unified under one government, but sometimes divided into a large number of independent settlements. Several islands including Chios and Samos were also considered part of Ionia.
6. Heart

Answer: Aorta

The AORTA is an artery that takes oxygenated blood out from the left ventricle of the HEART in the human body. It is the largest artery in the entire body. The term "aorta" can be traced by to the Greek word "aorte", meaning "I lift". After leaving the heart, the aorta travels towards the abdomen. The aorta splits into two iliac arteries.
7. Light

Answer: Umbra

The UMBRA is the darkest part of the shadow where there is a complete absence of LIGHT. When a solar eclipse occurs from the perspective of the Earth, the body of the Moon totally blocks the body of the Sun. This occurs because from the Earth, the Sun and Moon appear to be roughly the same size. The term "penumbra" would refer to a partial eclipse.
8. Malus

Answer: Apple

MALUS is the genus of plants that includes APPLE trees. Apple trees can be found throughout the temperate area of the Northern Hemisphere. Malus domestica is the specific genus and species for the eating apple. The apple tree was first domesticated several thousand years ago, eventually developing several thousand cultivars.

The historic Ostia was located on the Tiber River along Italy's coast. Due to the deposition of silt over the centuries, the site is now about two miles inland, though still along the Tiber.
