Hinduism has roots in the Vedic religion that was prevalent in Iron Age India. This religion has many beings that could be called demons. Pishacha are believed to haunt places associated with death and are believed to be able to change appearance as needed.

They are usually described as male entities that have prominent red eyes which glow in the dark. Bulging veins and very dark skin add to their terrifying appearance. They are thought to have the ability to possess a person causing a variety of maladies including insanity. Offerings are made to the Pishacha during various celebrations and rites in order to gain protection.

5. Kutji spirits were demonic beings believed to be able to possess animals such as crows, emus, and owls and are associated with the indigenous peoples of which of the following countries?

Answer: Australia

Found in the legends of the Aboriginal tribes of Australia, Kutji were believed to inhabit holes, and the shade of bushes. They were thought to be able to possess many of the native species and cause them to behave strangely, most notably to run in circles.

They were also believed to have the ability to manifest as a thunderstorm, mirages, and dust storms. They were believed to bring illness and death. The only people able to exert any control over these evil spirits were shamans, who were believed to be able to communicate directly with them.
6. Yuki-onna is a female Japanese demon who is believed to be responsible for the deaths of those who die in which unusual manner?

Answer: Freeze to death

Yuki-onna is described as a beautiful demon with long flowing hair that often appears to those who are caught in snowstorms. To see her is an omen of death by freezing. She is believed to be able to walk on snow without leaving footprints or alternately to have no feet.

She can also change shape into a mist or fog. She also has the power to freeze those who are alive simply by blowing her frozen breath upon them. As with many entities of evil, her depictions have varied throughout time.
7. According to Celtic myth, Dearg-due is a female demon that rose once a year from her grave and killed her victims in which manner?

Answer: She drained their blood

Dearg-due, which translates into "red blood-sucker", was a female vampire-like demon that killed only men. She did this as an act of revenge, because when she was a mortal woman she was forced by her father to marry a wealthy man she did not love. After committing suicide she rose from her grave and killed her father and her husband who had both treated her badly. Once a year she rises from the grave and uses her beauty to lure men to death.

It was believed that any female who committed suicide was in danger to become a Dearg-due.

It was believed that this could be prevented by covering her grave with a large pile of stones.
8. The Wendigo is an evil spirit found in many of the belief systems found in the indigenous populations of which continent?

Answer: North America

The Wendigo is an evil spirit found among the Algonquin tribes of northern North America. Although the entity is spelled multiple ways, the description is the same. This being was associated with the cold, starvation, and cannibalization. It was believed to be able to possess a human, especially those who had engaged in cannibalization. Wendigo psychosis is found only in this culture and those suffering from it experience strong desires for human flesh and may believe that they are turning into a Wendigo.
9. The fearsome female entity known as Ammit, who was depicted as part crocodile, part lion, and part hippopotamus, can be found in which ancient culture?

Answer: Egyptian

Ammit was a female demon found in the ancient Egyptian culture. She embodied all that was evil and was often known as "the devourer of the dead". She was believed to inhabit Duat, the Egyptian underworld, near the scales of justice. When the God of the underworld, Anubis, weighed the heart of the deceased on the scales of justice, if the heart was judged to be impure it was fed to Ammit. Being eaten by Ammit was considered to be dying a second death.
10. According to the "Dictionnaire Infernal" first published in 1818, what should one do for protection if he runs into the Slavic forest demon known as Leshy?

Answer: Turn your clothes inside out and backwards

As odd as it might sound, you should take off your clothes and turn them inside out and backwards. You should also put your shoes on the wrong feet. He is depicted as human in shape with blue skin, wild green hair and two large horns growing out of his head. If the change of clothing does not stop this being just set the forest on fire and the Leshy will leave you alone as his major responsibility is to protect the forest and all those who live within.
