A Quiz: the Answers

And here are the answers to yesterday’s photo quiz.  How did you get on?  When I first prepared this post, I put the answers under each photo.  And WordPress uploaded them into the quiz post ….  so I had to think again.

  1. Aeriel view of a lemon squeezer.
  2. A stack of Ordnance Survey maps.
  3. A household brush.
  4. A tea towel.
  5. Breakfast cereal.
  6. A wooden cupboard door.
  7. A grater.
  8. Noodles.  Half a point only for ‘pasta’.
  9. A tin opener.
  10. A hammer head.
  11. Water running from a bathroom tap.
  12. Nailclippers.

Square Perspectives

  1. Oh dear! After my early confidence yesterday I only have 3 😨 Plus half for pasta. Also I did get wood for no.6 – does that count? 😄 Either way, pretty dismal and not helped by my failing to keep in mind that these were household objects 🤔 Basic fail on exam technique there: Read The Question!

    More seriously, this amusing exercise has demonstrated for me at least that it’s scale as much as perspective which matters. I suppose scale is a part of perspective but for example, with the lemon squeezer (which I failed to get), I had something really small in my mind. (Nothing specific, I’d just made an assumption that this was a tiny button-sized thing.) Assumptions are never a good thing…


    1. I could well have been just the same. And yes, of course you can have a point for wood. Oh dear, I never wanted to put anyone back in touch with Read The Question days – stick with the fun. But you’re right, scale is everything. If I were a worm, a blackbird would be a pretty mighty thing!

  2. I like the comments as much as the quiz itself! I didn’t even attempt any serious work on it – I know my limitations! V clever though, and you deserve top marks yourself. Did people really get the Ordnance Survey maps, so obvious now but for me not at first, second or even third glance?

  3. I got 8. Not the lemon squeezer (mine is also glass) or the cupboard door, or the hammer head, that I thought was a solar light and not the nail clippers, my guess was a stapler. I did get noodles 😂

  4. Five and a half. Is there an accolade for the person who did most badly? I am relieved about the hammer. I thought it was a shower head with no holes which was a puzzle in itself. I thought the tea towel was one of those loose knit materials – perhaps a body scrub – but, answers being the best of all hints, I see it perfectly now.

    1. Five and a half ain’t bad. The virtual booby prize is not yours. The tea towel was sneaky. It’s the only one I have like that. And the hammer head was ridiculously difficult. So the girl done good.


    1. Oh, Carol, I do believe you’ve got the booby prize. Blame it on cultural difference. I’m sure hammers and tea towels in South Africa are quite different!
