    A quiz

    Could we make a quiz here?
    The basic rules would be:
    The person, who gets most points from the previous quiz, can start the next one

    There are four categories:
    Literature and culture (including art and music);
    History, geography and sport; (nah, I know nothing of sports, so I put it within another caategory, not a separate one)
    science, logic and nature;
    varia (no category, you can ask anything you want)
    All categories are equal and should have got equal maximum points.
    The person who is making the quiz, gives the questions of one category at a time, names how many points one can get from answering a certain question.
    You can distribute the points between the questions of the same category freely.
    You answer the question through and only through private message.
    You can answer the questions of one category in two days, then the person who makes the quiz tells the answers and also how many points people got.
    The questions should not be subjective, not like : "Who is the greatest romantic poet?"

    Here is an example:

    Day One:
    Lit and Cul
    Question 1. (0,5p)
    Question 2. (1,5p)
    Question 3. (3p)

    Day Three:
    The correct answers were:
    1. A
    2. B
    3. C

    The score is:

    X - 5p
    Y -4,5p
    Z - 2p

    His. Geo. Spo.

    Question 1. - (1p)
    Question 2. (1p)
    Q 3. (1p)
    Q 4 (2p)

    Day five

    The correct answers were:
    1. A
    2. B
    3. C
    4. D

    Score:

    X- 9p
    Y - 8,5p
    Z -7p

    Sci. Nat. Log.
    Q 1 (0,5p)
    Q 2 (4p)
    Q 3 (0,5p)

    Day seven

    The correct answers were:
    1. A
    2. B
    3. C

    Score:

    X- 10p
    Y - 13p
    Z -11p


    Varia:

    Q 1 (3p)
    Q 2 (2p)

    Day nine:


    The correct answers were:
    1. A
    2. B


    Score:

    X- 13p
    Y - 15p
    Z -16p

    Z has won and will make the next quiz.




    So, will we make a quiz?
    Oh, and, if we made one, I'd want to be the first one to ask questions. The reason is, if I cannot do it now, I possibly could never have the second opportunity to do it.

    All right.


    Literature and culture. (This is a literature forum. Would I ask a question about classical literature, I could get so many answers that I'd go insane. So I ask about a romantic composer and about a sci-fi novel)

    Question 1.1 He was born in 1810 and he died in 1849 into a lung disease. He was a great romantic composer.
    In 1831-1849 he lived in Paris, but he was not born there. Almost everything he wrote was for piano. He has written many mazurkas, polonaises,waltzes , nocturns and preludes. He has written a cycle of preludes of 24 preludes, each one from a different key.
    Name the composer. (2p)
    Question 1.2 Etude is a piece of music to advance one's technical skills. The composer of Q 1.1 has written two compendiums of etudes (op. 10 and op. 25), but them being so beautiful that they are being played on concerts. (so called "concert etudes") Both compendiums consist of 12 etudes.
    By which name is the etude nr. 12 c-minor from the first compendium (op. 10) better known as? (3p)

    Question 2.1 In which three sci-fi novels is there a character called Maksim Kammerer?(1,5p (0,5p for each))
    Question 2.2 Who are the authors? (1p)
    Question 2.3 In the first novel, there is a swearword called "massarakš" What does it mean? (2,5p)


    If I made any mistakes in grammar, then I am sorry.

    The answers should be sent through private message.

    I think that when you did tell it through the forum, then it would mean that only the first person could guess.

    But when it is too difficult, then I'll give some hints.

    Q 1.1 He was a Polish composer.

    Q 1.2 The etude begins with the letter "R" It's supposedly written in Stuttgart when he heard that Warsaw had fallen to the Russians.


    Q 2.2 They are Russian and they are brothers, and their first names are Boris and Arkady.

    Oh, and forget the questions 2.1 and 2.3. No need for them. Lets make it a 6-point one, then.

    Score:

    nome 1846 -6p
    Monica - 4,5
    verybadmom - 4,5
    amuse - 1,5p

    I thank all the people who answered.

    Answers:

    The seven wonders of the world:

    The great pyramids in Giza
    Hanging gardens of Semiramis
    The colossus of Rhodos
    The statue of Zeus in Athens
    The temple of Artemis
    Lighthouse of Alexandria
    The Mausoleum of Halikarnassos

    The country was Iceland

    The card game was bridge.


    Sci. Log. Nat.

    Q 1.1 Name two differences between the fungus kingdom and the plant kingdom. (1p both)

    Q 2.1 This is an old logical-mathematical problem:
    A man came to the shop of merchant A. He bought a suitcase which costed 5$. The man paid with a 10$ note. The merchant A did not have any change, so he went into the shop of a neighbour merchant (merchant B), and changed the money. He came back to his shop, gave the man 5$ change and the man left.
    After a while, merchant B noticed that the 10$ note was false money. He went to merchant A and demanded a real note for the false money. Merchant A gave it to him.
    Merchant A calculated his losses:
    *Suitcase (5$)
    *Gave 5$ change
    *The 10$ note to merchant B

    Together: - 20$

    What was his actual loss (1,5)

    Q 2.2 Also a mathematical-logical problem
    A man bought a horse for 600$. After a while he sold it for 700$. After some time he bought the same horse for 800$. And again, he grew tired of the horse and sold it for 900$.
    Did the man break even, lost money , or won it. And if lost or won, then how much? (0,5)


    Q 3.1 What are those famous astral bodies, which's escape velocity is bigger than any known speed? Escape velocity is the speed a body needs to escape the influential area of some greater body. (For example: If Earth's escape velocity is 11000km per second then you have to develop that speed to escape from Earth;(i.e. if you want to go to the Moon)) (2p.)

    I am sorry because of my terrible english.
