For me it's the other way around. Magnum is the most well-known (and most common) ice cream brand in France, but I've never heard of a wine bottle referred as a "magnum".

If Apple had just be "fruit", I would have got that! I always think of apples as green (although I am aware they come in many colours!)

I second that ! I thought the answer was blackberry and didn't get why it said "red", so I tried every red berry I know... I didn't think of apples, since for me they're mostly green or yellow...

Same, the "red" really threw me. First typed cherry, I know, it's not electronics. Suddenly loking at electronics apple came to mind. Then I thought, huh but they aren't red, ow yea, I guess sometimes they are, a little bit.

I'm pretty sure that no one refers to Cocaine as "Coca-Cola"

It is the brand name, though

My response to this is that "coke" isn't a brand. Coca-Cola is the brand. So by your very argument, the name under brand should be Coca-Cola or you should entirely remove the question from the quiz.

My response to this is that Coke is indeed a brand.

Level 73
Feb 18, 2018
I agree that Coke is accepted as a brand and many of their products such as the bottle of Diet Coke that I am currently looking at does not have the words Coca Cola anywhere on the label.

A trident is not the same thing as a pitchfork.

Level 57
Apr 24, 2015
Doesn't a pitchfork usually have 4 prongs and is curved, whereas a trident had 3 and they are perfectly straight?
+1
Level 75
Apr 24, 2015
Yes, and sometimes the tines on a trident are arrowhead-shaped at the ends. Tridents are used for gigging fish or frogs while a pitchfork is used for pitching hay. It's like saying a hoe and a shovel are the same thing.

I'm sure the vast majority of us would fail a quiz based on brand names well known in India. Other than Indians or expats living there. These quizzes are about common knowledge.

*common knowledge in USA :)

As for many other quizzes, a lot of answers are specific to the US. Americans are, after all, the dominant group of quizz-makers here I guess.

@trebek you are contradicting yourself with the term common knowledge there.

hm.. never heard of a wine bottle being called that. I often miss the questions aimed at alcoholics. If you had said gun preferred by Dirty Harry I might have gotten that.

Apr 24, 2015
Haha...alcoholics...I don't think that's what the size of the bottle is meant for. I believe you purchase that to share with a group of friends.

I agree that Dirty Harry would be a good clue. I disagree with the idea that only alcoholics would know about the wine bottle.

All but one of the different sizes of wine bottles are named after biblical kings (jeroboam 3 litres, rehoboam (4.5. liters), methuselah (6 liters), salmanazar (9 liters), balthazar (12 liters), nebuchadnezzar (15 liters), melchior (18 liters), solomon (21 liters), or melchizedek (30 liters).

And then there is the magnum, which is named after a 1980's private investigator.

I don't recognize most of those brands, and judging by the results of this test, it seems that a few are only local.

I think quite a few a big international brands but are actually sold under a different name in the rest of the world.

There's no definition of "apple" that requires it to be red. Comes green and yellow too.

Pretty sure it is despite the the description that many people got the answer. If it was just fruit and electronics I am convinced it would be higher.

I think "raspberry" might be a better answer for that one...

Jul 28, 2018
I assumed as it was “red fruit” it must be a Raspberry Pi.

Apples are seldom red. (Pink or ‘blush’ or russet maybe.)

Not that I would've gotten it, but out of curiosity is "snack bar" a real term for things like that? Don't think I've heard it before, and Wiki/Oxford apparently agree with me that it's a place to sell snacks from, not something you eat.
