Great quiz for Q week. I think I knew most of them. For number 4 I think the answer is Quad but wasn't sure if quadrangle would be the full name. That would be my guess for the extra points. Carver, ABC Wed Team

I missed #5 and thought "quivering" for #9! So not bad, I would think!

Great quiz, - I got most of them, but not all. Wrong generation for Elvis Presley trivia.

Had NO idea a breeding cat is a Queen, and I thought the feeble voice was quavering - now not sure if it is even a word - will have to look it up - you've got me in a quandry!

I think I got most of them. Number 9 has several possible answers, as in; a quiet, but queer, quavering and querulous voice was heard quizzically repeating the same question quite quickly.

Well. phooey, I missed 3. Didn't know the female breeding cat, the 24 sheets of paper or Elvis's hair style.
Great Quiz for the letter Q.
Very quirky.

No qualms about your quality qs. Glad you didn't quit before you reached your quota. Quite a quantity of quips and quotes!

Lisa said...

hmmm, I didn't do so well on the Quiz! But it's a great take on the Q prompt for the day. And I learned a few new things. :-)

Gattina said...

Even I with my 3 cat females don't know that, lol !

As an English major, I should lie and say I did exceedingly well, but I have to admit I flunked that quiz. Then when you see the answer you smack your head and say "I knew that!" Fun Q entry.
