Just Having Some Fun, and Learning At the Same Time!

This is Quiz #21 of many and by now you know that some of the questions are challenging, to say the least. When I create a quiz, I don't copy from another person's work, I do the research and create the questions myself, using multiple-choice answers that could possibly be the correct answer, although sometimes I can't help myself and throw in some humorous tidbits as choices.

The questions on Quiz #22 are listed below without the answers so you can do some pre-studying in preparation for the next quiz.

Good luck!
