Which of the following fiction character is not human?

"character" should be "characters". "fiction" should be "fictional" or rewrite the question to read "Which of the following characters in fiction is not human?"

Which weapon is inflicting cut injuries?

Should read "Which weapon inflicts cut injuries?".

I'm not entirely happy with the answers - "Sword" is correct, but "Shovel" is another option, and if used as a weapon a shovel might easily inflict cut injuries. But I guess that's for a different thread.

@ Johannes,

You have a point with that shovel, though... it's not considered as a weapon (lol)

I spotted this one as well but decided not to report it, because in the USA sports teams always seem take the singular, even when their names are plural. So they say "The Washington Redskins is playing at home this Thanksgiving". It seems odd to my ear, too, because in the UK it is pretty much the opposite - "Blackpool are playing at home to Wigan next week". So I would say that this is an allowable local variation, rather than plain wrong.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is the governor of which American state?

(California marked as correct)

Well no he isn't, he was replaced by Jerry Brown at the start of this year. This is a classic example of a question which should have had a "current date" attached to it. It is now simply incorrect, and needs to be amended or retired.

121
969

Days? Minutes? Years? Centuries?

And Methuselah whom?

Because of the answer I think the question refers top the Biblical Methuselah, and it should be years, but how in **** does a question stated like that get approved?
