-3. Which Caribbean island is the home of the active volcano Mount Pelée?
-4. What name is shared by a folk singer and a U.S. senator from Illinois who was known for wearing bow ties and heavy-rimmed glasses?
-5. What was the signature outfit of the Fonz on Happy Days?
-6. Is the claw of a hammer a lever, a wedge, or an inclined plane?
-7. When an official complained that the walls of his structure were not high enough to display some of the art, Frank Lloyd Wright suggested they cut the pieces in half. Name the building.
-8. Most people think biscotti is Italian for “biscuits”. What does it really mean?
