Asterisks and ampersands are debatable. Unicode considers them punctuation but most language references consider them symbols.

Both "Cold" and "2019" can be considered nouns in certain contexts. For example:

- The cold was difficult to ignore.

- 2019 was the calm before the storm.

Agree, and 2019 is more likely to be a noun except in a context like the 2019th something.

Cold is a noun. You can have a cold so that is a thing. They should not have put a word with multiple meanings in the quiz
