Think Different the Ninth: I Just Can’t Wait!

Post by HugoTroop » July 27th, 2020, 11:55 pm

Welcome back again! Might as well get another one of these going. For previous games, see
#8, #7, #6, #5, #4, #3, #2, and #1.

The Rules:
1. You have 10 questions that you try to guess a correct answer for.
2. The catch is that the goal is to get the fewest number of points. The way you earn points is for each correct answer you give, you will earn the number of points equal to the number of people who guessed that answer. So, for instance, if your answer to Question 1 is Thomas Jefferson and 3 other people guessed that answer, you would earn 4 points for that question (1 for yours and 3 for the others). If you get the answer wrong, you earn the number of points equal to the number of participants plus 5 points (i.e. if there are 13 participants, you get 18 points). The best attainable score is 10 points.
3. There are two bonuses you could use to replace an answer: DROP and SHEEP. DROP means you earn 1 point for that question. SHEEP means you earn the number of points equal to the answer that the most people answered. So for instance, if the correct answers were A, B, C, and D, and 7 people guessed A, 6 people guessed B, 3 people guessed C, and 2 people guessed D, then the people who said SHEEP would earn 7 points for the answer (your SHEEP doesn't count as an answer and doesn't affect the others' scores). You get only 1 of each bonus if you so choose to use them. It is advised that you use DROP before SHEEP. Again, you don't have to use
4. PM me your responses by Tuesday, 11 August, 11:00 CDT. Any answers PMed after that point will not be considered.
5. Make sure not to cheat, please. Cheating is defined as letting other users know what your answers are before the deadline is reached. For this game, you may use any sources to find your answers (i.e. the wiki, Google, etc.).
6. Users can change their answers before the due date arrives, but after the due date, answers may not be changed.

Clarification for Question 10:

I realize that the term “year model” may have various different meanings and interpretations. As such, the possible answers will be selected from the list here: https://www.valulinecars.com/content/to ... enerations

One more slight clarification, the game ends at 11:00 PM CDT (23:00 CDT) on 11 August, just in case there was any confusion (also shameless self-promotion: please play!)
