Question Of The Day: 29th September, 2009

Gauging from the responses over the last few days I shall not term this as easy, difficult or anything in between. Please go ahead and tell me what should come in place of the question mark? [Hint: America]

Please leave your answers as comments. They are moderated and will be published along with the correct answer.


And the correct answer is:

Texas. These are the 4 home states of the last 4 US presidents.

(Some of you answered Missouri based on the geographical position of these states (in a general North East direction), had this been a quiz with scores maybe I would have given you half the points.)

Pictures from top left (clockwise):

Texas - George Bush Sr.

Arkansas - Bill Clinton

Texas - George Bush Jr.

Illinois - Barack Obama

MountCleverest said...

does it have something to with the US presidents.
George Bush Sr. was Senator from Texas, followed by Bill Clinton who was senator from Arkansas, followed by Bush Jr. from Texas followed by Obama from Illinois.

It could also be north-eastern direction travel(state wise) from texas to illinois in which case the answer would be Montana :D
