    I like the category, but I wish it had replaced "Science and Technology" instead of "Literature". I think the science category is the only one now that has been around without a break for years, and it's getting a bit boring. The literature one comes and goes, and while there are still a lot of Stephen King questions, there are a lot of other ones too, and some are interesting (Shakespeare for example).
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    5. On average, how many arms does a human being have?

    Your Answer: two
    Although there are cases of people having lost an arm or both their arms, I'm sure human beings do not posess 8 arms.
    Human being, octopus . . . I always get those mixed up.

    9. I shared my name with two more wives
    We married the same man
    Not all at once, I beg to say -
    He also had Jane, Anne and Anne.

    Your Answer: Katherine

    The correct answer was Catherine.

    Henry Vlll married three women named Catherine (or Catharine/ Katherine). His first wife was Catherine of Aragon, then came Anne Boleyn, then Jane Seymour, then Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and finally Catherine Parr.



    I object to this one!!! "Katherine" and "Catherine" are the same name and spelling it with a "K" was much more common in Tudor times! The "C" spelling is a more modern version- although Katherine of Aragon is sometimes spelled with a "C", as her names comes from the Spanish version -"Catalina". But in contemporary documents the women themselves used the "K" version.

    Anyways- unfair question!
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
