Its major cities include Amsterdam, the capital, Rotterdam and the Hague. The Netherlands is a very progressive nation, known for its tolerance and welcoming nature.

5. What is the name of the colonial town and living history museum in Virginia?

Answer: Williamsburg

Colonial Williamsburg was the capital of the Virginia Colony from 1699 to 1780. It is an historic district where you can go back in time and see the clothing, the shops and how the colonists lived during the 18th century and the American Revolution. Williamsburg is a wonderful place to take the family to show kids the history of the nation and to learn to appreciate our heritage of freedom.
6. Where could you get a ride on the Wonder Wheel and eat a Nathan's hot dog?

Answer: Coney Island

Besides the beach, Coney Island houses an amusement park, Luna Park, the only amusement park in New York City. It is home to the Wonder Wheel, roller coaster, Steeplechase Park, a Mermaid Parade and a hot dog eating contest in July, sponsored by Nathan's Famous Franks. While it doesn't have the fame of the Disney Parks, it's a lot cheaper and more convenient for New Yorkers.
7. In "Oliver Twist", what was Charles Dickens' nickname for Jack Dawkins?

Answer: Artful Dodger

Jack Dawkins was a skillful pickpocket and leader of a gang of young criminals trained by Fagin. Because of his cunning and skill, Jack was given the sobriquet of "the Artful Dodger".

Regarding the other choices, Fagin is the mentor to the young thieves, while Pip is short for Philip Pirrup from Dickens' novel, "Great Expectations". Boz was Dickens' pen name; it was inspired by the character Moses from Oliver Goldsmith's "The Vicar of Wakefield".
8. Which meteorological condition, arising in the Indian Ocean, is defined as "a system of winds rotating inward to an area of low atmospheric pressure"?

Answer: cyclone

A monsoon is a prevailing wind in Asia which brings torrential rain. Of the other three storm choices, the only difference between a cyclone, hurricane and typhoon is where the storm occurs. When these winds occur in the Atlantic and Northwest Pacific, it is called a hurricane, while in the Northeast Pacific it is a typhoon.

When it occurs in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean, it is a cyclone.
9. Which 1941 Disney film was remade by Tim Burton?

Answer: Dumbo

In March 2019, director Tim Burton's remake of the animated Disney classic about Dumbo, a baby elephant with gigantic ears, was released. The movie is about a struggling circus owned by Max Medici, played by Danny DeVito. When a newborn elephant with oversized ears is born, the circus performers all laugh at him; that is, until they find out those ears enable Dumbo to fly and can get their 'Big Top' back in the black.
10. What is the place the clues above have led to?

Answer: Brooklyn

Brooklyn is in Kings (#1) County, and is one of the five boroughs (#3) of New York City. It was named Breukelen, i.e., "broken land" by the Dutch settlers who came from the Netherlands (#2). Among its famous neighborhoods are trendy, expensive Williamsburg (#5), Coney Island (#6) (Brooklyn's famous amusement park), and DUMBO (#9) which stands for Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Barclays (#4) Center is an indoor sports arena which hosts the Brooklyn Nets and the Islanders.

The Brooklyn Dodgers (#7) used to play at Ebbets Field, and the Cyclones (#8) are Brooklyn's minor league baseball team.
