Nothing sinister. In large families, you sometimes have a male Smith marry a female Jones, and then a female Smith marry a male Jones. In that case, the children are related through both mother's family and father's family. In other words, your mom's brother is your uncle by blood and your uncle by marriage.

I'd like quizmakers to stop using the term "Can you guess..." for these quizzes, we're not guessing for most of the answers, if we're getting most of them right we know the answers, therefore there is no guessing involved.


Thank you

Rant over.

I disagree.

It invites the quiztaker to select the best answer, to accommodate some "I know what you're asking for" logic and to do it in a way that's described by the looseness of the directions. It provides a useful freedom that isn't provided by a strict interpretation of answers as correct, or completely correct.

Of course it doesn't stop nitpicky arguments, but it does provide an accurate and flexible instruction that's more useful than if it invited more strictness, and I prefer it.
