Here’s some more fun responses from BrainQuest questions this week. Some are just funny wrong answers, but at other times we go into this zone of ridiculousness.

Q: True or false: Abraham Lincoln was the second president
A: The Civil War
Q: What do we call organisms that eat only plants?

A #4: Asia
