Quiz Description

This is the second quiz of this format - first one is here.

For each question, the correct answer is the CAPITALIZED TERM referring to the larger classification. If the two classifications are the same size, write EQUAL. You do NOT need to give the numbers associated with each classification, though you are welcome to guess if you like. (As long as you correctly enter the CAPITALIZED TERM referring to the larger classification, any number that you add to your answer makes no difference as to whether I mark it correct or incorrect. Feel free to add numbers as guesses if you like.)

Example 1:
Which is larger?
The number of PROTONS in a helium atom or the number of SIDES in a triangle?

Answer: SIDES (3 - 2)
(Whether you said "SIDES" or "SIDES (3 - 2)" or "SIDES (3)" or "SIDES (19)", this would be correct.)


Example 2:
Which is larger?
The number of points scored by HARVARD's football team on November 23, 1968 or the number of points scored by YALE's football team on November 23, 1968?

Answer: EQUAL (29)
(Whether you said "EQUAL (29 - 29)" or "EQUAL" or "EQUAL (29)" or "EQUAL (100)" this would be correct. If you said "HARVARD" or "YALE" or even "HARVARD (29 - 29)" this would be marked incorrect.)

If I give three or more classifications, you answer should refer only to the largest. If a single classification is the largest in its group, give it as the answer. If the largest is tied among two or more, write EQUAL. No need, in this case, to specify which classifications made up that tie.

Unless otherwise specified, the source is Wikipedia.
