One point for each answer you get completely right (maximum score = 10). Take half a point if you judge your answer was pretty close to correct.
1. Huey, Dewey and Louie
2. Any 3 of Harpo, Zeppo, Gummo, Groucho, and Chico
3. Any 3 of Harvard, Princeton, Yale, William & Mary, and Penn
4. Any 3 of Bobby, Peter, Greg, Cindy, Jan and Marsha
5. Any 3 of Jefferson ($2), Jackson ($20), Grant ($50), McKinley ($500), Cleveland ($1000), Madison ($5000), and Wilson ($100,000).
6. Faith, Hope, and Charity
7. Wynken, Blynken, and Nod
9. Any 3 of Canada, Iraq, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela. Because of the recent ISIS violence, Iraq may drop out of this list by year’s end so Kuwait or Colombia instead are okay as answers.
10. Any 3 of Ida McKinley, Edith Roosevelt, Helen Taft, Ellen Wilson, Edith Wilson, Florence Harding, Grace Coolidge, Lou Henry Hoover, (Anna) Eleanor Roosevelt, and Bess Truman. If you answered something smart alecky like “Mrs. Truman, Mrs. Hoover, Mrs. Taft” without giving first names, give yourself half a point for sheer chutzpah.
