A Quiz for people who know "Everything"...!!

Everyone must have at some or the other time come across some people who pretend to know everything about the world around... No matter what you tell them, it is known to them.. So lets have some fun with them.. The main purpose of this quiz is to rescue you when you come across some Mr/Miss. Know All..!!!

I just got this mail today and it was really interesting. I thought of forwarding it to my friends first but then, the next minute, it struck me..may be I should publish it on my blog and share this with everyone out there..

So, here is a small quiz of just nine questions... Simple and Straight ones.. Nothing tricky about them.. Just read them and try to answer.

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends. 

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?  

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several  growing seasons.  All other vegetables must be replanted every year.  What are the only two perennial vegetables? 

4. Which fruit has its seeds on the outside? 

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle..  The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way.  How did the pear get inside the bottle? 

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words.  Name two of them. 

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar.
Can you name at least half of them? 

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh. 

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter 'S.'

P.S. :Got my exams ... So have to study my answers..!! I would be back with the answers to these the next time... Till then, crack your brains and yeah... "Dont use Google.." :)
