Quiz Description

I've been enjoying the fully palindromic quizzes here and on LL, so I decided to make one of my own for my first quiz. The complete sequence of 12 correct answers will form a single palindromic string, reading the same backwards and forwards. Some answers may have multiple possible phrasings or spellings, but only the phrasing and spelling that fits the global palindrome will be accepted.
