I could use some assistance from the GT hive mind with my company's holiday quiz. There are 100 questions to the quiz and it's in PDF form, so I've shared it on my dropbox folder (too big to attach here, 2mb file). So far, I think I've gotten over half of them.

The quiz is here: *removed, if you still want it you can PM me*

Thank you in advance for any assistance. icon_biggrin

Oh, the prize is a Kindle 3, in case you're wondering.

Where the hell do you work, a thinktank?

Without researching, I can tell you 5 is Hemingway, 6 is Che, 8 is The Simpsons, 11 is Van Gogh, 12 is Pollock, 14 is Warhol, 15 is hockey, 23 is Othello, 31 is marmalade people.

That's as far as I got.

A Pew Research Center poll found nearly half of Americans hold the false belief that TARP was passed under President Obama, while only 34 percent know it originated under Bush.
"Oh yeah?" Bush replied. "50% of the people were wrong."

#76:

Albert is Processor
Brenda is Marine
Clare is Land

This is due to Brenda identifying Albert as processor, Clare identifying herself as Marine, and Albert saying Clare is Land. If Brenda is lying, then Albert is too and there would be 3 liars which cannot be. If Clare had claimed processor is the only way the alternative would work.

No, I think Lodestone is correct. I thought they were referring to the other two, but it's cornerstone and runestone which is why I thought it might be Quad44. They only refer to Quad44 as being near Lodestone (which is then the answer).

I hate CGGVeritas just for their use of the english language. Tongue

Heh, and you beat me to that one biggrin


Quote
Explanation:
10 could not speak Spanish, 20 could not speak Italian, and 25 could not speak Mandarin. So there could have been 10 people who spoke none of those languages.

However, that would maximize the number of people who could speak all three, and the problem asks at least how many speak all three. Therefore, we must assume that these 10, 20, and 25 people are all separate people. Having identified 55 each of whom is missing one language, the remaining 45 speak all three.
