Default Quizzy's Discovery Zone

I noticed some errors and debatable questions in the Quizzy's Discovery Zone. (Errors are in green, debatable questions are in purple.)

There were a few spelling and grammatical errors in the Discovery Zone>Animals>Bears, but I wasn't able to write them down.


Animals>Big Cats:
  • Question 31: "Leopards live in a groups..." should be "Leopards live in groups..." with no "a". Also, the comment for this says "Once they're grown up, Leopards live...". It should be "leopards live", with no capital "L".
  • Question 39: "Mountain Lions once lived..." should be "Mountain lions once lived...". Again, no capital letter at the beginning. Same with the comment for this one. Names of animal species shouldn't be capitalized unless:
    • They're at the beginning of a sentence.
    • They're part of a bullet point that isn't a complete sentence or used to complete one or they're part of a title.
    • They're the scientific name of the animal, not the general name. (Ex. mourning dove vs. Zenaida macroura)
  • Questions 40, 42, 43, 45-47, 49, 50: See Question 39. Some are with lynx or bobcat instead of mountain lion, but the same concept applies.
Animals>Bugs:
  • Question 16: Monarch in the middle of the sentence shouldn't be capitalized. See Question 39 of the Animals>Big Cats category.
  • Question 20: A possible answer for
    Spoiler: show
    "How many wings to flies have?" is "None They have anti-gravity".
    This should be
    Spoiler: show
    "None. They have anti-gravity." With a period in the middle.
Animals>Marine Mammals:
  • Questions 9, 10, 12-23, 25-32, 34-36, 38-44, 49, 50: "Beluga Whale", "Whale", "Gray Whale", "Orca Whale", "Pod", "Sperm Whale", "Sea Lion", "Dugong", "Elephant Seal", "Fur Seal", "Giant River Otter", "Otter", "Harp Seal", "Monk Seal", "Leopard Seal", "Sea Cow", "Echidna", and "Walrus" shouldn't be capitalized unless they're at the beginning of a sentence. See Question 39 of the Animals>Big Cats category. They should be "beluga whale", "whale", etc.
  • Question 17: Another error is that it says, "...can weigh as much as a:" A possible answer is "Elephant", so it should say "as much as a(n):

Science>Astronomy:
  • Around question 24: I forget the question, but it was something like "How was it discovered that Earth orbits the Sun?" One of the options was "Haley's Comet". There is a "Haley's Comet" (I think) but it's much less well-known than "Halley's Comet", which is what I think it is supposed to be.
  • Question 46: "How many stars can be seen without a telescope?" Answer:
    Spoiler: show
    '2,500'
    Scientific answer: It depends on the season, where you live, and the light pollution in your area. In other words, it is very variable.
Science>Paleontology:
  • Question 9: "Bone beds are made when:" Answer:
    Spoiler: show
    "A large group animals were buried"
    It SHOULD be
    Spoiler: show
    "A large group of animals were buried"
  • Question 22: "By studying trackways of dinosaur footprints, scientists are able to tell how __ dinosaurs were." Choices:
    Spoiler: show
    42, tall, heavy, fast.
    Answer:
    Spoiler: show
    Fast.
    I think
    Spoiler: show
    heavy
    is also an answer because
    Spoiler: show
    a light dino's foot only sinks into mud, say, an inch. A heavier dino would sink in more, so you can determine relative relative weight. You can also determine relative speed.
  • Question 30: Why couldn't dinos stand upright? (I paraphrased that question). Some dinos could, like the famous T. Rex, the Acrocanthosaurus, and the Homalocephale. Their body structure was large hind legs and very small, short front legs. These dinos (and others) wouldn't have been able to walk on four legs very easily.
  • Question 42: Pterosaurs had
    Spoiler: show
    fur, according to this question. An earlier question said that no dinos had fur.
    Were Pterosaurs not dinos??
  • Overall, I was disappointed how the majority (at least 30) of the paleontology questions were about dinos or life forms that were similar to or lived at the same time as the dinos when that period of time was just one little bit of Earth's history and the paleontology field. No questions were on human history, I think there were 2 on the Ice Age and 10 general archaeology questions. Very limited variety.

Everyone, I obviously haven't done all the categories. If you want to add any errors you found, please do. I'll add the other categories when I do them. If I made a mistake, you want to debate one of my comments, or whatever, you can PM me.

Also, sorry for the VERY high quantity of spoilers, but I wanted to be clear and I didn't want to spoil it for those of you who want to do the questions with no help.

Anyway, Ganz officials, please make some corrections if possible. At least fix the typos, please.

Default Re: Quizzy's Discovery Zone

I have found plenty of errors in quizzy's corner. The people who wrote the questions probably are not the sharpest tool in the shed, but some of those are typos.

Default Re: Quizzy's Discovery Zone

I found a question in the North America section that really could have had two correct answers. It asked which country was North of Mexico, and technically, two of the answer could have been correct. It should have asked which country is immediately North of Mexico.
