A few things... 1. worker could be 'bee' 2. one who is released from prison could also be "free" 3. history of breeding could be "family tree" :-)

In a sense, yes. But the definitions given here should be all that is necessary to fully define the word, and worker does not fully define bee. Free is not an appropriate word for one who is released from prison, either, as the definition clearly calls for a noun and not an adjective. Finally, "family tree" is not a single word, so it doesn't fit.

I thought of "free", too, but I agree with tschutzer that it is clearly asking for a noun, not an adjective.

There's no caveat saying that it has to be a single word...

Haha... I also guessed "family tree" for "history of breeding." Though I knew it was probably wrong since, even though not specified here, usually these tests have single word answers.

I first thought genealogee but then thought no, that is not the right english spelling

Got them all, but possibly the description for "divorcée" should be "A woman who is no longer married", since the masculine form of the word is "divorcé".

Good quiz. Had to think on some of them, but still finished with 1:56 left. (Always a good quiz when I get 'em all.)

Caffeinated drink.. okay.. so.. we got espresso - nope, lattee? nah - cappucino... wait.. Goddammit! - Also wrote "degree", yep not the same as "decree", but I say it's just spelling.

I tried "evacuee" but it didn't work for refugee.

Arrestee for prisoner?

Nope, there's no guarantee you'll get convicted if you're arrested.

I too put family tree even though I was fairly certain it was wrong. Never did come up w/ pedigree. Regarding the talk about parolee, that's the first thing I came up with. Just seemed like the right fit.

Released from prison = Free :)

couldn't evacuee also apply to one who flees his country to escape war, persecution or a natural disaster

For someone fleeing their country due to war, I was going to try SOL, but it didn't end in ee. 😉

Statue of Liberty??? (Perhaps "libertee"?)

Evacuee should be every bit as acceptable as refugee. Especially with natural disaster part of the clue. If you aren't going to take it, then remove natural disaster and/or mention that it's for an extended period or something about a legal status.

Breeder for history of breeding?

One who is released from prison - frEE

I think "captee" should work for prisoner.

Captee - One who has been captured; one who is held in captivity.

Captivity - The state or period of being imprisoned, confined, or enslaved.

Apogee is specific to orbits around the Earth (sometimes used for apoapsides in orbits of other planets) with the generic equivalent for that point in orbit being apoapsis.

I liked the quiz, but I am an astronomy pedant.

Level 68

Oh but I agree, the clue is very poor for the answer apogee. Highest point doesn't describe it and apogee is not the most distant orbit, it is the point of an orbit that is most distant from the Earth.

Why does it say a woman who is no longer married. There are two people involved in a divorce, a man is a divorcee as well.

Don't you think a person newly admitted to a Hall of Fame is an honoree? (Whereas someone newly admitted to a fraternity would be an inductee, not an honoree.)
