Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of these options is NOT correctly matched to the number one?

Answer: Roman number represented by the letter C

The Roman symbol "C" stands for 100 - one is represented by "I". The boy band One Direction finished third in the 2010 edition of the UK "X Factor" talent show, although their initial success eclipsed the performers who came first (Matt Cardle) and second (Rebecca Ferguson). Thomas the Tank Engine, in the children's books by the Rev AW Audrey, has the number "1" painted on his side.
2. Which of these does NOT relate to the number two?

Answer: Players in a string quartet

A string quartet consists of four players: usually two violins, a viola and a cello. In hunting, a brace refers to two of a particular species. In the "Austin Powers" films, Robert Wagner plays a character known only as Number 2, who is Dr Evil's second-in-command.
3. Which of these four choices is NOT correctly matched to the number three?

Answer: Pillars of Wisdom by T E Lawrence

The autobiographical book by "Lawrence of Arabia" is called "Seven Pillars of Wisdom". Chekhov's "Three Sisters", pining endlessly for Moscow, were Olga, Masha and Irina. The original Three Stooges were Moe, Larry and Curly (although the character of the third Stooge changed several times during the team's forty-year existence).
4. Which of these does NOT relate to the number four?

Answer: Degrees of separation

There are said to be six degrees of separation, in the theory that every person in the world can be connected to any other in no more than six steps of association. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are war, famine, pestilence and death. The four seasons are spring, summer, autumn and winter, while a pack of 52 standard playing cards consists of 13 each of clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades.
5. Which of these would you NOT associate with the number five?

Answer: Total of symphonies composed by Mozart

The standard catalogue of Mozart's music contains 41 numbered symphonies. Although there are a number of other un-numbered symphonies that have subsequently been added to the list, there are certainly lots more than five. Felix Mendelssohn (1809-47) wrote exactly five symphonies, while of course many composers wrote more.

The Spice Girls were nicknamed Ginger, Baby, Scary, Sporty and Posh.
6. Which of these options is NOT associated with the number six?

Answer: Players in a cricket team

A full-size cricket team has eleven players, not six. In "The Prisoner", Patrick McGoohan's character was known only as "Number Six".
7. Which of these options is NOT correctly matched to the number seven?

Answer: Lines in a sonnet

A sonnet has 14 lines, and can often be sub-categorised as a Shakespearean, Petrarchan or Spenserian sonnet depending on the metre and rhyme scheme.

The so-called Seven Deadly Sins (lust, gluttony, avarice, sloth, wrath, envy and pride) were formalised by Pope Gregory I in 590 AD. In the original folk tale, the seven dwarfs were anonymous - it was Walt Disney who named them Doc, Sleepy, Sneezy, Bashful, Happy, Grumpy and Dopey.

The Seven Ancient Wonders were the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
8. Which of these would you NOT associate with the number eight?

Answer: Baker's dozen

A "baker's dozen" is 13 (one more than a standard dozen) and was originally introduced in thirteenth century England to prevent bakers from giving short measure. In the film, the "Eight Legged Freaks" are giant mutant spiders.
9. Which of these does NOT relate to the number nine?

Answer: Stations of the Cross venerated by Roman Catholics

There are normally 14 Stations of the Cross, in the form of pictures or relief sculptures which represent stages in the progress of Jesus from being condemned to death through to being placed in his tomb. Roman Catholics in particular are encouraged to meditate on them during lent.

The nine muses and the arts and sciences over which they preside are: Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Euterpe (lyric song), Thalia (comedy), Melpomene (tragedy), Terpsichore (dance), Erato (erotic poetry), Polyhymnia (sacred song), and Urania (astronomy).
10. Which of these options is NOT usually associated with the number ten?

Answer: Holes on a championship golf course

A full-size golf course has 18 holes, although some smaller ones may have only nine. The ten events making up the decathlon are the 100 metres, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400 metres, 110 metres hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1500 metres.
