Team StoryWeavers|August 22, 2022, 10:18 IST| 269

Welcome to BYJU’S Sunday Challenge. This week’s quiz is all about common sense – which happens to be quite uncommon! Do you have the wits to solve even the trickiest of questions? Take your best shot and stand a chance to win an equally uncommon reward.

You can take a shot at the questions and field your guesses in the comments section below. Answers will be revealed on subsequent Sundays in the comment section. The fastest entries to get all questions right win a pair of Bluetooth headphones.
Ready? Here are your questions:

Question 1

Which is the most venomous snake to be found in the wild in Ireland?

Question 2

You would have seen shrubs and trees growing on the dividers on highways across the country. While they look beautiful and add some greenery to the roads, they also serve a key function in helping drivers. What is their purpose?

Question 3

What was the title of Akbar’s autobiography?

Question 4

Hari is the father of Anmol, but Anmol is not the son of Hari. How is that possible?

Question 5

A laconic sense of wit is characterised by terse, blunt usage for humorous effect. The Spartans were famous for this. For instance, when Philip II of Macedon was invading Southern Greece, he sent a message to the Spartans asking if he should come as a friend or foe.

The Spartan reply was “neither”.

Losing patience, Philip sent a message saying, “If I invade Laconia, I shall turn you out.” What was the one-word reply from the Spartans?

Take your guesses in the comments section below. Winners of this edition, along with the answers will be revealed next Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled!
