Quiz For Folks Who Know Everything

This is not easy! Don't cheat bylooking at answrs at the bottom.

This is a quiz for people who know everything!



I found out in a
hurry that I didn't.
These are not trick questions.
They are straight questions with straight answers

nor the participants know the score or the leader
until the contest ends.


2. What famous North American landmark
is constantly moving backward?



3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to
produce on their own for several growing seasons.
All other vegetables must be replanted every year.
What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on
the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy,
with a real pear inside the bottle.
The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine ;
it hasn't been cut in any way.
How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English
begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them.
