Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

How much do you know about the unicorn?

This legendary beast is often depicted as a white horse with a single, spiraled horn protruding from its forehead. Authors and artists have described the creature in mythological stories and folklore. Ancient Greeks, the Indus Valley civilization, European Renaissance, and even the Bible have all discussed the unicorn.

Aside from its prominent appearance, this animal is also known for its power. Not only is it a symbol of purity and good, but the horn was supposedly magical. The wild creature could heal sick people by making poisonous water potable. Do you believe it? There are no longer any unicorns around to find out if they ever existed at all.

Nevertheless, there are several other animals still alive that resemble the unicorn in different ways. For example, it clearly looks like a horse, but more so a single-horned goat. Oryx and eland are animals with dual longhorns, but the narwhal is perhaps the most similar. Aside from being a marine animal, a narwhal has a single, spiral horn coming out its head. Maybe the unicorn was left behind when Noah made his ark unlike his relatives, but we may never truly know.
