kalium is the original latin name for potassium, scientists dont just name elements and their initials separately xD so gold was Aurum, mercury was Hydrargyrum, antimony was Stibium, etc :3

I somehow never have problems with that one. but sg stumped me for a while...(cause I knew there were two elements whose symbols started with an s but not the element name, when they werent it, couldnt think of any element starting with s that would fit for a while) Still even with the holdup 2:32 left. This quiz is a good practise to get the elements better memorized
