it’s Sunday, the third Advent and after the depressingly hard quiz a few days ago, it’s time for … another quiz that might be really depressing.
Hooray! Best third Advent ever.
And this is actually a new kind of quiz and it’s about
Etymology (I know at least one person who is yawning right now ;)
Here’s how it works – I’ll give you a German word and four English words and you have to deduce/guess/research which of them is NOT related to the German word.
Let’s do an example:
der Tisch (the table)
The correct answer here is dash, because that’s the one that’s NOT related to Tisch. All the other three are.
Now, this one was actually a bit easier than the ones in the actual quiz. But of course the idea is not that you just guess.
So I have tried to have the three related words all have a common theme.
Try to look for the word that doesn’t fit in with the others.
And if you want, you can also get yourself a little hint for each question – usually it’s the core theme you have to look for.
And in teh answers, I’ll give you a brief explanation of the “logic” for each word.
As I said, we’ve not done this type of quiz before, so I am not sure if it’s to difficult or not, but I hope it’s fun.
So… viel Spaß :)
