I tried "animal" and a whole bunch of more specific types; then settled on Evergreen State student (too bad there's no football team - I'd love to see the helmet logo); then gave up.

Shouldn't just "clam" be acceptable? You have to type in the whole phrase "a type of clam" to get the answer.

Please allow "clam" for "a type of clam". I typed in Clam, Bivalve, Mollusk, shellfish, invertebrate, all of which are valid answers to the current question.

Elon Musk is now one of the two richest people in the world, thus the question is inaccurate.

You should add "Tahoma" as a type in for Mount Rainier. It's the original name for the mountain and I know many people who prefer to use it. Sort of like Denali vs Mt McKinley (although admittedly fewer people use Tahoma).

Fun Fact: Peter Rainier, the British naval officer who the mountain is named after never visited the American west coast, let alone the site of Mt Tahoma
