Every Tuesday is a Trivia Tuesday on AmericaJR… Look for five new trivia questions and answers from the “365 Amazing Trivia Facts for 2020” calendar…

This Week’s Questions:

  1. Water covers nearly 70 percent of the earth. But how much of that water is fresh water?
  2. Some animals can be described as crepuscular. What does crepuscular mean?
  3. What is the two-letter symbol for silver on the periodic table of elements?
  4. Name the 2018 Steven Spielberg movie based on a popular novel by Ernest Cline.
  5. What was the code name for the Battle of Normandy (the Allied invasion of Western Europe) in World War II?

This Week’s Answers:

  1. Approximately 2.5 percent to 3 percent–and much of that is trapped in glaciers and snowfields, meaning that there’s even less fresh water readily accessible to humans. The vast majority of water on Earth is saline.
  2. Most active around twilight. For example, some bats are crepuscular.
  3. Ag. The symbol comes from argentum, the Latin word for silver.
  4. Ready Player One. The book and film tell the story of a futuristic world where people spend much of their time living in a virtual-reality program called OASIS.
  5. Operation Overlord. The battle, also known as D-Day, began on June 6, 1944.
