Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. I'm not an insect, but I have numerous legs. I don't spin webs, but I suck on your nutrients. I fear people more than they fear me. I can walk on walls, but also can die from the simplest fall. What am I?

Answer: tarantula

I know most of you were probably thinking "spider". Well, if you thought a little harder you would realize that although a tarantula is a spider, tarantulas are a lot more fragile that normal spiders, and they don't actually spin webs. The first line, "I'm not an insect, but I have numerous legs" gives you a clue. Tarantulas have eight legs while insects have six.

The second line, "I don't spin webs, but I suck on your nutrients" might lure you into thinking it's a bat, but in fact all spiders suck on the fluids inside their prey. Also, as this thing does not spin webs, it must be a certain type of spider.

The last line gives it away, because unlike most spiders, tarantulas can easily die from the slightest fall.
2. I am one of the largest objects ever. I assist in seasonal changes. I can give life, as well as bring death. Anything that gets near me disintegrates. What am I?

Answer: the sun

This one required a little thinking. Immediately when I said "one of the largest objects", you should be thinking around the world or in outer space. Then in the second line, "I assist in seasonal changes" lets you know that it is not something man-made.

The last line should have given it away. It's a big object that changes the season and burns anything that touches it. THE SUN! The third line talks about how the sun can kill animals that are cold blooded or people that have heart problems, and can bring life to plants and some other things.
3. We can see almost everything, but ourselves We have many different colors. We sometimes don't function in unison. We can be sensitive to light. What are we?

Answer: The human eyes

Now think about the first line, "We can see almost everything, but ourselves". The human eyes can see almost everything, but we cannot see our own eyes unless we hold up a mirror. The part, "We can have many colors" refers to contact lenses and original eye colors such as blue, brown, green, etc. You might have got lost when I said, "We sometimes don't function in unison". Most of us move our eyeballs exactly at the same time, but some of us have lazy eyes. For the final line, I think all of us are sensitive to bright lights. We wouldn't wear sunglasses if we weren't!
4. Some people might say I'm a great cook. Others insist to keep me away from books. Going for a swim I shall not bother, For I do not get along very well with water. I am a good source of light, When it is dark and creepy at night. What am I?

Answer: Fire

Fire is one of the main tools used to cook. Probably the best. It is common sense not to put a book near an open flame. We all know what will happen. We know that water and fire are not good together by the fact that water puts out fire. Finally, when the batteries of a flashlight die out, you can always ignite a match for your source of light.
5. I like to fight, but I fight verbally. My mouth is my main weapon and I like to use it hurtfully. People use me in the form of music. When I'm put on a record I tend to lose it. I've been known to be confused with a synonym of cover. When I'm not fighting, I'm speaking in the form of a lover. What am I doing?

Answer: Rapping

I am not talking about "wrapping", I am talking about "rapping". As many of us may know, rapping is another form of speaking how you feel, but in a lyrical, rhyming formation. When people rap, they tend to sometimes express how they feel in a violent manner. That is why I said, "I like to fight, but I fight verbally". Rap is a genre of music. "Wrap" is another synonym for "cover" and some people who rap talk about their feelings of love for another.
