Jeopardy is one of the longest-running quiz shows in US history. With its famous reverse "If this is the answer, what is the question?" format. The biggest winner in the show's history is Ken Jennings. He took home the prize 74 times in a row before he was defeated by one Nancy Zerg. Questions on the real show range from easy to impossibly difficult. How would you fare on our Jeopardy-style quiz?

Some tidbits

Jeopardy! was originally produced by talk show host and entertainment magnate Merv Griffin. With the exception of three years from 1975-1978 and a further five years from 1979-1984, the show has been on the air challenging Americans’ general knowledge since 1964. The biggest single episode prize ever won was by Roger Craig in 2010, when he took home $77,000. He later came third in the Jeopardy!: Tournament of Champions, behind Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. One of the most embarrassing episodes of Jeopardy! occurred in 2015, when two out of three contestants were knocked out before the final round, meaning however badly the remaining contestant, Kristin Sausville, performed, she was destined to take home the prize.
