9. Sporting venue

Spot......Place......Realm......Area

Got "arena" but had to first weigh if you counted "palace", as there are a number of sporting venues that are referred to by that moniker. (e.g. The Palace of Auburn Hills, home of the NBA's Detroit Pistons; Cow Palace in San Francisco)

Music educator here: not all trombones have valves. If they DO have valves, they are extra F attachments, which are not standard on all trombones. The garden variety trombone that most people are familiar with have a slide, tuning slide, bell, and mouthpiece, along with connecting tubing. Only special trombones have valves. Would would be more accurate would be if the question said "trumpet" instead of "trombone". Good quiz otherwise, got 100% on the first go.

Question for nautical folks: do you actually refer to the mechanism itself as the helm? I always thought that was just the name of the location / position of authority, but my frame of reference for tall ship terminology is old pirate books & films. I was looking for "tiller" or "wheel".

This quiz is random each time you play it, so "No. 4" isn't consistently the same. Which specific question are you talking about?

I don’t think that really works, ‘rank’ is only used in this sense when it’s referring to something disgusting or foul-smelling. Doesn’t quite mean the same as ‘obscene.’
