11/10/17 – Higher or Lower


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

READ BEFORE SCROLLING : Today’s quiz will involve an element of text that has been turned white on the website. I genuinely am unsure if this display element translates to email, so if you read these posts on your email, I would ask you to head over to the website for now. That way, you can fully play along with what’s going on, and don’t have to worry about being spoiled in case white text doesn’t come through. Thanks!

In the last Five Course Trivia edition before we head to LL75, we have a game to test our your number abilities. Presented for you here is a list of fourteen statements, each of which have a two-digit number as its answer. What you have to do is tell me is will the next number be higher or lower than the previous one.

The answers for these statements can be found BETWEEN the two statements, shaded white. To reveal the answer, highlight the text by clicking and dragging the text so that you can read what it says.

Also, thank you to you readers who sent in suggestions for this quiz! Some of them were definitely used, and I hope you keep continuing to love the site!

Good luck making it to the end! Aces high, deuces low, number these terms right, and win the dough!
