As promised, our quiz answers…!
- Mount Everest was still the tallest, but we just didn’t know it yet. Also known as Mount Chomolungma or Sagarmatha.
- The child was born before the founding of the United States, which wasn’t really that long ago.
- Once, and then it becomes 20, not 25. Although we’re also accepting the answer “infinitely” — because you could argue that you can always subtract 5 from different instances of 25. I mean, if you have 25 beans and you subtract from it, you can still encounter 25 pennies the next day.
- The child lives in the southern hemisphere, where the summer comes in December.
Hope you enjoyed. Happy summerishness to you!
