Ambiguous Quiz Questions/Answers

Postby KerryQu1zzer » Fri Feb 17, 2017 3:15 pm

At a quiz last night, a question asked "Which Irish county is known as the Lake County", and it later proved that no fewer than three of them (Fermanagh, Cavan and Westmeath) shared the nickname! Similarly, if asked "Which is the most westerly US state", Alaska is the correct answer, based on the Date Line, but quizmasters will regularly only accept Hawaii, so do you put the right answer, or the expected one?

If you're looking to win the quiz you'll need to try and second-guess what the QM has on their paper. Twas ever thus ;)
