We all like to think that we have all the answers, but sometimes, life throws a real doozy at us. We eagerly watch trivia shows like Who Wants to be a Millionaire and imagine that we were the ones sitting next to Jeremy Clarkson, ready to claim our first million! If trivia questions are your idea of a good time, you’ve come to the right place because we’ve got it all right here!

What Does Our Planet Revolve Around?

People around the world are intrigued by space, and for good reason. The greatness of outer space is so vast that we struggle to comprehend it.

Wikimedia Commons // Reto Stöckli // Public Domain

Experts like Professor Brian Cox also admit to being overwhelmed by the magnitude of what lies beyond our planet. We all know that Earth revolves around a stellar being. Is it the Sun or Uranus? Could it be the moon or Mars?

Simply Out of this World

Even our best scientific equipment is too restrictive to determine the exact size of space, but we know it’s more significant than 93 billion light years. That’s a number that we can’t fathom.

Wikimedia Commons // Reto Stöckli // Public Domain

When we examine Earth, it is relatively tiny compared to other celestial objects. The largest and most useful celestial being for us is the Sun. We are permanently revolving around it.

Which Two Animals Do Mules Stem From?

Our planet is filled with extraordinary animals that often surprise us. In fact, the loudest animal in the world is only 2 cm in size! It’s called a pistol shrimp.

Wikimedia Commons // Dietmar Rabich // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Many animals came into existence because of gene crossing of different animals. Which animals do mules stem from? Could it be horses, donkeys, goats, or camels?

Tough as Nails

When a male horse and a female donkey mate, a mule is born. Amazingly, these animals possess some of the best qualities of both animals.

Wikimedia Commons // Dietmar Rabich // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

While they might not be as fast as horses, they are very tough and resilient. Their fur is also much thicker than a horse’s, allowing them to survive in harsh conditions.

How Many Continents Are There On Earth?

Our planet is filled with diverse places, from hot, dry deserts to frozen wonderlands. It might be challenging to name every country on Earth, because there are almost 200!

Wikimedia Commons // NASA/ GSFC/ NOAA/ USGS // Public Domain

But how much do you know about the continents, and how many are there? Are there as many as 13 continents or as few as three? Or is it something in between?

Wonderful Masses of Land

Earth has only seven continents: Africa, Australia, South America, North America, Asia, Europe, and Antarctica. Asia is the largest continent, covering over nine percent of Earth’s surface.

Wikimedia Commons // NASA/ GSFC/ NOAA/ USGS // Public Domain

On the other hand, despite spanning over three million square miles, Australia is the smallest continent. It’s also the only continent that is also its own country. Put another shrimp on the barbie!

What Did the UK Call Snickers Bars Before 1990?

Whenever people are asked what their favorite treat is, the odds are that chocolate will be mentioned. It’s hard even to imagine our lives without this magical ingredient.

Wikimedia Commons // Jcornelius // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

One of the most popular chocolates today is the Snickers bar, and we all know the name of it… But it wasn’t always called this in the UK. Do you know what it was called before?

A Bar by Any Name

Snickers bars are so popular that the company doubles production for months leading up to Halloween. Interestingly, the UK called this top-notch bar a Marathon Bar up until 1990.

Wikimedia Commons // Jcornelius // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Perhaps this is because people might consider running a marathon to get their hands on one! Or maybe they eat them while running to get energy. We prefer the name Snickers. How about you?

Which Country Is the Smallest in the World?

There are 195 countries on Earth. Some countries have unique features. Take Nigeria, for example. It has 520 spoken languages and dialects!

Wikimedia Commons // Gzen92 // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Even if you can name all or most of them, ask yourself if you can identify the world’s smallest country based on its square mileage.


The Vatican City is the world’s smallest country, at just 0.17 square miles. But what it lacks in size, it makes up for in importance and value.

Wikimedia Commons // Gzen92 // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

It is home to the Pope, the Vatican, and many of the world’s most precious artistic and religious artifacts. As a result, this country has more than five million visitors annually.

Which Planet Is the Closest to the Sun?

Our solar system is an extraordinary celestial structure. The planets can be divided into gas giants and terrestrial planets.

Wikimedia Commons // NASA // Public Domain

We live on a terrestrial planet that is close enough to the Sun for us to live. But which planet is the first in line from the sun?

Twisted Realities

If you said Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, you would be right. Because it’s so close to the Sun, it’s natural to think that it’s the hottest planet, but that’s untrue.

Wikimedia Commons // NASA // Public Domain

Venus is much further from the Sun, but it is also the hottest planet. This is because Venus has a very thick atmostphere filled with greenhouse gasses!

How Many Sides Do Heptagons Have?

Just when we think we’ve seen all the shapes our planet has to offer, a new shape was discovered in 2018. The shape is called a scutoid, and it’s a 3-dimensional, eight-faced prism.

Wikimedia Commons // Quartl // CC BY-SA 3.0 DEED

While we are more familiar with standard shapes like circles, squares, and octagons, do you know how many sides a heptagon has?

Shapes All Around

There are many shapes that are similar in number of sides, making it complicated to remember them individually, especially when they’re uncommon.

Wikimedia Commons // Quartl // CC BY-SA 3.0 DEED

A heptagon has seven sides, while an octagon has eight. Hexagons have six sides, and decagon has ten. Try saying that seven times fast!

Which Ocean Lies on the West Coast of the US?

Americans are very proud of the West Coast, and for good reason. It is home to fantastic beaches, superb natural sights, and the world’s biggest bookstore.

Wikimedia Commons // Radomianin// CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

If you’ve been fortunate enough to explore the West Coast, you might have seen the ocean that lies next to it. Is it the Pacific, Mediterranean, Indian, or Atlantic Ocean?

One of Five Massive Oceans

Our Earth has five huge oceans. The Pacific stretches from the West Coast of the US to Australia and Asia.

Wikimedia Commons // Radomianin// CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Residents of the West Coast insist that visitors try the delicious selection of Mexican food and visit a music festival.

What Color Does Blue and Yellow Mixed Make?

We go through our lives surrounded by color. In fact, scientists say that color has such a significant effect on people that it can evoke long-lost childhood memories.

Wikimedia Commons // WikiMakersOfOurTime // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

When you mix colors, we might be surprised by the result. What color do you think you get when you mix blue and yellow together?

A Rainbow of Colors

When we mix blue and yellow, we get green. If you choose a dark shade of blue, your green will be pretty dark, too.

Wikimedia Commons // WikiMakersOfOurTime // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

On the other hand, if you use more yellow than blue, your green will be light in color. Either way, the answer is green. Did you get that?

What’s the Strongest Muscle in the Human Body?

While we are all aware that we have muscles all over our bodies, we might not know that much about them. All muscles can be divided into three groups — skeletal, cardiac, and smooth.

Wikimedia Commons // Cpl. Wil Acosta of the 1st Marine Corps District // Public Domain

We know that all our muscles are essential, but which muscle is the strongest? Could it be the brain, our biceps, tongue, or jaw muscle?

Flex that Muscle

Impressively, an adult has more than 600 muscles. While people might think that the strongest muscles are located in the upper legs, back, or arms, they’re wrong.

Wikimedia Commons // Cpl. Wil Acosta of the 1st Marine Corps District // Public Domain

The strongest muscle is in the jaw, and it is called the Masseter. This powerful muscle can exert over 200 pounds of pressure on your molars. Crazy!

Which Land Animal Is the Fastest?

Our planet has varied animals, from slow snails to speedy gazelles. Some can jump incredibly high, and some can swim extremely fast.

Wikimedia Commons // Alvinategyeka // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

But there is one animal that can outrun every other animal on the planet. So, regarding land animals, which ones leave the others in the dust?

The Speed of Light

Cheetahs are the world’s fastest land animals. Their incredible flexibility and stretchability allow them to reach speeds of up to 80 miles per hour.

Wikimedia Commons // Alvinategyeka // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Even Usain Bolt couldn’t outrun a cheetah… And that’s saying something because he’s faster than every other human at 23.35 mph over 100 meters. This is a huge difference compared to a sloth that moves a foot per minute.

How Many Months Have Only 30 Days?

Most of us live our lives by the calendar. We pencil in essential events that can’t be missed. The 12 months of the year seem to fly by.

Wikimedia Commons // Rantemario // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Interestingly, the Roman calendar had only 10 months. Out of the 12 months we have today, how many have 30 days?

Take it Day by Day

It is a logical way to think that half of the year has 30 days and the rest has 31 days, but it isn’t accurate.

Wikimedia Commons // Rantemario // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Instead, only four of the twelve months have 30 days… April, June, September, and November. As the rhyme says — all the rest have 31, except for February (which has 28 days, except in leap years when it has 29).

What does WWW Stand For?

The internet has become such an integrated part of our lives that it’s challenging to think of life without it.

Wikimedia Commons // Dhivyabsk // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

We might repeatedly type the letter ‘w’ three times every day, but what does it stand for? Could it be Wild Wild West, World With Windows, or World Wide Web?

Global Connections

The internet has blessed us all with extraordinary ways to communicate. It is possible to communicate with anyone anywhere within seconds.

Wikimedia Commons // Dhivyabsk // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

That is thanks to the World Wide Web! If you were born after the year 2000, you likely wouldn’t know this one. But that’s what us oldies used to call it back in the day.

What is the Process of Liquid Turning into Gas Called?

Remembering your elementary science classes, you might recall learning about the water cycle.

Wikimedia Commons // G. Edward Johnson // CC BY 3.0 DEED

This process is needed for all life on Earth to continue. How well do you know the names of the steps that are so vital to us?

Put the Kettle on

We’ve all seen it. When you are making yourself a cup of tea, you see the steam escaping from that hot cup of liquid. That’s the process of evaporation happening before your eyes.

Wikimedia Commons // G. Edward Johnson // CC BY 3.0 DEED

Condensation is the opposite process, where a gas cools down and turns into a liquid.

Which M&M Color Do We Find the Least?

M&Ms have become international staples; kids and adults everywhere enjoy this tasty treat. Interestingly, it was impossible to find red M&Ms in the ’70s because of health concerns.

Wikimedia Commons // Evan-Amos // Public Domain

Today, red isn’t the rarest color anymore. So, when you open a bag of this treat, what color will be the fewest? Could it be yellow, blue, green, or brown?

Sweet as Candy

Believe it or not, brown is the rarest color of M&Ms. This is quite surprising, considering that it’s the same color as chocolate.

Wikimedia Commons // Evan-Amos // Public Domain

The candy is so popular that their New Jersey factory produces more than two billion of these delicious treats in eight hours. Imagine the colors and smells within that factory!

How Many Legs Does a Spider Have?

Arachnophiles might disagree, but spiders are amazing creatures. They have fascinating features, including two body parts, silk-producing glands, and exoskeletons.

Wikimedia Commons // Petar Milošević // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

The variety of spiders is also mind-blowing, with some spiders so giant that they can catch birds and others so small that they are tricky to see with the naked eye. Whether you like them or not, do you know how many legs these fascinating creatures have?

Move Over, Spiderman

The reason why spiders can hunt so well is because of their excellent eyesight and multiple legs. Spiders have eight legs, a feature that sets them apart from insects.

Wikimedia Commons // Petar Milošević // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

While spiders have two body parts and eight legs, insects have three body parts and six legs. Some spiders have eight eyes, others have six, and a few have four.

Which Manufactured Drink Is the Most Consumed Worldwide?

These days, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to drinks. No matter where you go, you’ll find something to quench your thirst.

Wikimedia Commons // Oto Zapletal // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Big franchises like Starbucks have their own coffee-producing farms to keep up with demand. The most consumed drink in the world might surprise you!

Refill, Please!

If you answered coffee to the question above, you’re incorrect. In fact, the most consumed manufactured drink in the world is tea.

Wikimedia Commons // Oto Zapletal // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

This is thanks to the incredible selection of teas available to consumers today. Plus, tea is cheap to grow and package, making it inexpensive to sell.

Which Soft Drink Was the First to Be Enjoyed in Space?

Most of us enjoy the thirst-quenching abilities of soda pop, so soda drinks continue to thrive in the market.

Wikimedia Commons // Wilfredor // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

In fact, Coca-Cola sold 37.2 billion cases in the US alone in 2021. With such a vast selection of soft drinks to choose from, which one was enjoyed first?

A Space Race

The idea of racing to be the first soft drink in space might be amusing, but that’s what happened between Coca-Cola and Pepsi in 1985.

Wikimedia Commons // Wilfredor // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

Coca-Cola was consumed eight hours before Pepsi was in space. Which side of the Coke vs. Pepsi debate are you on? We know where we stand…

Which Organ Cleans Blood and Removes Waste?

Our bodies work like well-designed machines, with everything working in equilibrium. While all organs serve a purpose, some are more vital than others.

Wikimedia Commons // Silviaelzi // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

We can’t live without several of our body parts, but especially this crucial organ — but is it our kidneys, lungs, liver, or heart?

Keeping Us Strong

If you guessed that the answer is kidneys, you are spot on! Our kidneys might be small, but they’re very valuable organs.

Wikimedia Commons // Silviaelzi // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

They help our bodies balance mineral, salt, and water levels. They also help with blood pressure control and vitamin D activation.

Who Painted the Mona Lisa?

When it comes to famous paintings that are on millions of people’s bucket lists, the Mona Lisa is the queen.

Wikimedia Commons // Louvre Museum // Public Domain

People from all over the world travel to the Louvre in Paris to take a look at this iconic painting. However, most of us might not know who was responsible for this masterpiece.

A Secretive Smile

Few paintings have been so captivating that songs have been sung about them. We all know the smash hit “Mona Lisa” by Nat King Cole.

Wikimedia Commons // Louvre Museum // Public Domain

He sings of her secretive smile because she often makes us wonder what she’s thinking about. Leonardo Da Vinci was responsible for this sensational work of art.

Which Food Will Never Spoil?

We’ve all experienced it. We’re making a sandwich, only to find that our bread has become moldy, and we have to throw it away.

Wikimedia Commons // Downtowngal // CC BY-SA 3.0 DEED

Fruits go fuzzy when it is humid, and veggies rot in time, shortening our time to enjoy them. However, there’s one food that will never go bad.

What a Buzz!

Honey is the only food that will never spoil. This is thanks to its unique makeup. Honey can really be considered nature’s treat.

Wikimedia Commons // Downtowngal // CC BY-SA 3.0 DEED

In fact, bees live off of honey in the wintertime. It only seems fair that this superfood powers its makers, too, right? That’s really something worth buzzing about.

How Do We Classify Ourselves?

Let’s face it. The human race is pretty fascinating. We have the ability to grow, change, and learn. We can also classify things, including ourselves.

Wikimedia Commons // Fons Heijnsbroek // CC0 1.0 DEED

The question, however, is how we correctly classify ourselves. Are we autobots, mammals, carnivores, or herbivores?

Fit the Mold

Humans are mammals, and we share that classification with many animals, including Blue Whales. We fall into this category because we have mammary glands and fur.

Wikimedia Commons // Fons Heijnsbroek // CC0 1.0 DEED

Amazingly, the mammal group ranges in weight from animals weighing a few grams to those weighing up to 160 tons.

What does TMI Stand For?

Acronyms save time and add a bit of flavor to our lives. Acronyms like LOL, TGIF, and YOLO are used worldwide every day.

Pexels // cottonbro studio

Another one that is often seen is TMI, but what does it stand for? Try My Internet? Or perhaps it’s Too Many Invites?

Don’t Overshare!

We all have that one friend who seems to have no filter. Often, we wish we could unhear things that have been said.

Pexels // cottonbro studio

At times like these, the acronym TMI comes in handy because it means too much information!

What Do You Call the Outer Measurement of a Circle?

Circles have always been regarded as being the most positive shape. Think about the Circle of Life and the 5 Circles that represent the Olympic Games.

Pexels // Anna Tukhfatullina Food Photographer/Stylist

Even though we are surrounded by circles every day, they’re the most difficult shapes to draw perfectly. Admit it, you’ve tried drawing the perfect circle at least once! Can you succeed in naming the measurement of the outside of a circle?

Round and Round We Go

Mathematicians have many names that relate to this fabulous shape. Terms like perimeter, diameter, area, and circumference are regularly used.

Pexels // Anna Tukhfatullina Food Photographer/Stylist

While all of these terms relate to circles, only one of them refers to the outer measurement of a circle — the circumference.

What’s New York’s State Capital?

New York is arguably the world’s best-known city because of its vibrant lifestyles, Times Square, and its proximity to the Statue of Liberty.

Wikimedia Commons // Dietmar Rabich // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

If you love the state of New York, can you name its capital? Is it Albany, Brooklyn, or Buffalo?

Tiny but Effective

While Albany is more than 14 times smaller than New York City, it is the state’s capital city. Does this surprise you as much as it surprised us?

Wikimedia Commons // Dietmar Rabich // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

It has a fascinating history as it is the birthplace of the electric motor and the telegraph. Sometimes, you can be small and mighty, as Albany shows.

What Does a Geiger Counter Measure?

Ever since the beginning of the human race, man has been fascinated by the idea of measuring things. We measure everything around us, often without even realizing it.

Wikimedia Commons // ArticCynda // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

We measure our bodies, the temperature, our time, and the distances we need to travel, only to name a few. But what’s a Geiger Counter, and what does it measure?

That Really Counts

Sometimes, the things we don’t see have the ability to harm us most. That’s why we regularly measure air quality, radiation levels, precipitation, and temperature.

Wikimedia Commons // ArticCynda // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

A Geiger Counter is a measuring device for determining radiation levels. If you plan to take a trip to Chernobyl, you may want one of these.

What’s the 50th State Called?

The Stars & Stripes represent the states so beautifully, boldly showcasing 50 perfect stars.

Pexels // Karolina Grabowska

While the flag is very impressive, it makes us wonder whether we can name the 50th state. Could it be Maine, Nevada, Hawaii, or Alaska?


Hawaii was the last state to be added to the US list. In fact, it was only named and added in 1959. Better late than never, Hawaii!

Pexels // Karolina Grabowska

Hawaii is one of America’s 10 most visited states, even though it was late to the party. It seems to be making up for lost time!

What’s a Collection of Maps Called?

These days, we have no difficulty finding maps to navigate the world around us. In fact, more than a billion people in 220 territories and countries use Google Maps daily.

Pexels // Arturo A

Years ago, we had to find maps in a book that held many maps. Was this book called an atlas, an almanac, or an encyclopedia?

Let’s Find That Spot

Before GPS, we had to find our bearings with the use of a book of maps called an atlas. If you ask your grandparents, they likely had one in their cars back in the day.

Pexels // Arturo A

While these books came in handy, they are not a match for the convenience of online maps today. Unless you run out of battery, that is!

Star Sign for Those Born in Late-October?

Fascinatingly enough, there were originally 13 zodiac signs. The thirteenth was known as the Snake Charmer. It was the Babylonians who decided that there wasn’t space for a 13th sign on the astrological wheel.

Pexels // RDNE Stock project

How well do you know your zodiac signs? If our birthday was on October 27th, would that make us a Scorpio, a Leo, a Taurus, or a Capricorn?

Written in the Stars

People have been fascinated by zodiacs and their horoscopes for centuries. In fact, the oldest horoscope dates back to 410 BC.

Pexels // RDNE Stock project

But not everyone knows which star signs align with which dates. People celebrating their birthdays between October 23rd and November 23rd are Scorpios.

What’s Iron’s Chemical Element Symbol?

Our world comprises chemicals and particles without which we can’t survive. It’s a delicate balance to ensure life on Earth is possible.

Pexels // Pavel Chernonogov

While we might know that H2O is water, it becomes more complicated when we start testing our knowledge of the periodic table.

Iron Strength

Many people might answer that ‘I’ is the symbol for iron, but that’s not accurate. Instead, FE is the symbol for this element.

Pexels // Pavel Chernonogov

This is the most used element found on the planet. We need its durability and strength for manufacturing and civil engineering projects.

What Do We Call the Center of the Earth?

While we might know our planet’s appearance from where we stand, the Earth is a layered wonderland with many important layers.

Pexels // @rrrinna

The deepest layer of Earth experiences so much pressure that it is always in a liquid state. What do we call this part of Earth?

The Core of the Matter

The center of Earth is called the core. Due to the pressure, this part of Earth has a temperature of nearly 10,000℉ — now that’s roasty toasty!

Pexels // @rrrinna

The crust is covered by the mantle, which is solid. This mantle ensures that we don’t all become medium-to-well-done human steaks.

How Many Tentacles Do Octopi have?

The ocean is filled with outstanding animals that can do incredible things. From fish that can blow up to squid that can shoot ink, the ocean is a treasure trove for the unusual.

Wikimedia Commons // Revital Salomon // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

An octopus is also a unique animal because it has many tentacles rather than just two or four like most other animals. But just how many do they have?

Always Within Reach

If your answer was that an octopus has eight tentacles, you’re on the money! Imagine how much easier your life would have been if you had eight arms.

Wikimedia Commons // Revital Salomon // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

All species of octopi have eight tentacles, and these body parts help them search for food and secure their safety. They also make them look pretty cool!

What’s Mickey Mouse’s Pet Called?

For decades, Walt Disney has entertained us with his fabulous cartoons. Many of his characters have become so popular that they can be seen worldwide.

Wikimedia Commons // Walt Disney // Public Domain

Mickey Mouse is his most recognized character. Do you remember that Mickey actually has a pet dog? Can you recall the pup’s name?

Mouse’s Best Friend

Mickey Mouse’s pet dog is called Pluto. Mickey Mouse was created in 1928, and his pet hound followed a few years later.

Wikimedia Commons // Walt Disney // Public Domain

These days, Mickey Mouse is just as recognizable as Santa! Today, hundreds of thousands of people visit Disney Land and Disney World, many to get a photo with Mickey and Pluto.

How Many Innings Does a Baseball Game Have?

Baseball has become such a big part of our global culture, dating all the way back to 1744. While it’s widely played in the US, there may be a few things you don’t know.

Pexels // Martin Péchy

While this question might be easy for baseball players to answer, non-players might need clarification on whether it is as few as 5 or as many as 12.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

There are nine innings in a baseball game. The game is so popular that it has its own song celebrating it. The song is called “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”

Pexels // Martin Péchy

The song is as well-known as “Happy Birthday” in the US. Whether you attend a big game or a little league event, those around you will be sure to know it.

What Do We Call a Group of Wolves?

Wolves are amazing animals that combine their strengths to enhance their odds of survival. This is primarily because they live in groups.

Pexels // patrice schoefolt

Dolphins, meerkats, and crows are also considered animals that live in groups for survival. So, what do we call a group of wolves?

Be Social

Wolves are pack animals, and as a result, a group of wolves is called a pack. It’s very uncommon to see a wolf without a pack.

Pexels // patrice schoefolt

These amazing animals can take on large enemies, find food sources, and stay warm when they stick together. Safety in numbers, after all.

Which Currency Does Scotland Use?

Scotland is a place unlike any other. In fact, it is the only place to have an imaginary animal for its official animal. Yes, you read that right. The official animal for Scotland is a unicorn.

Wikimedia Commons // Colin // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

But when it comes to currency, where does this interesting place land? Does Scotland use the Peso, Euro, Yen, or Pound?

Show Me the Money

Scotland uses Pounds, which is used throughout the entire UK. Another fun fact about Scotland is that it’s home to the world’s shortest flight, only 47 seconds long!

Wikimedia Commons // Colin // CC BY-SA 4.0 DEED

The flight is 1.7 miles long in the Orkney Islands from Westray to Papa Westray. A round trip on this flight will cost you 14 Pounds.

Which Fairytale Features a Gingerbread House?

For centuries, people have been entertaining their children with fairytales. In fact, the name ‘fairytales’ dates back to the 1700s.

Wikimedia Commons // Marit & Toomas Hinnosaar // CC BY 2.0 DEED

A fairytale featuring an evil witch who tries to lock up two children has been around for centuries. Can you name it?

Blood Is Thicker than Water

The Brothers Grimm were two brothers with active imaginations who created many of the fairy tales that we know today.

Wikimedia Commons // Marit & Toomas Hinnosaar // CC BY 2.0 DEED

Among those is the gripping story of Hansel and Gretel. The story features siblings who find their way to a gingerbread house in the woods. But all is not as it seems.

What was Albert Einstein Most Known For?

Most people can quickly identify Albert Einstein because of his iconic (and somewhat nutty) appearance and his famed E=MC2 equation.

Wikimedia Commons // Oren Jack Turner // Public Domain

We all know that he is the reason why we’re so scientifically advanced these days. But what was he most famous for?

Phenomenal Understanding

Einstein was praised for his deep understanding of gravity, space, the universe, and time. In fact, we can thank him for GPS because, without him, we would still be using an atlas.

Wikimedia Commons // Oren Jack Turner // Public Domain

Even with all of this, Albert Einstein was best known for his Theory of Relativity. He published his theory all the way back in 1915, and many of his findings are still relevant today!

Where Can You Find the Taj Mahal?

This architectural masterpiece is one of the world’s most iconic and visited places. We bet you have seen it in pictures or in movies before.

Wikimedia Commons // Dhirad // CC BY-SA 3.0 DEED

Amazingly, Emperor Shah Jahan created the Taj Mahal as a gesture of love for his wife. Is it located in China, Japan, Israel, or India?

An Impressive Landmark

This remarkable landmark took more than 20 years to complete. Construction began in 1632 and was finally finished in 1653.

Wikimedia Commons // Dhirad // CC BY-SA 3.0 DEED

Standing gloriously in India, it was worth the wait! The masterpiece welcomes around eight million visitors a year and is one of the most popular landmarks.

How Many Stripes Are There on the United States Flag?

We are all familiar with the American flag’s 50 stars, which represent the 50 states. However, can you recall the number of stripes on the flag without needing to see a photo of it?

Pexels // Karolina Grabowska

Could it be as few as 10 or as many as 20? We all know what it looks like but when it comes down to it, can you say how many stripes there are?

Salute the Star-Spangled Banner

The American flag is one of the world’s most iconic and easily recognized flags. The Stars & Stripes shares a bold message of patriotism, values, and aiming for the American dream.

Pexels // Karolina Grabowska

The stripes represent the colonies of the US. The flag boldly displays seven red and six white stripes, with a total of 13 stripes.
