Dunno how many lifelines I'd have left.

100K: About all I know is you recite the alphabet to G & then go back to A. Which will be pretty high, so go for it.

250K: Only word I know here is isomorphism; not it. +1 & 50/50, but prolly leave here. Would not trust ATA.

I don't know what lifelines I would still have at this point, but if I have the 50:50 I use it. My guess would have been the right answer based on the unwarranted assumption that it was likely to be a note in a C major scale, which would exclude B and D.

This one I know. "Skeuo" is from the Greek for "tool" and "morphism" is from the Greek for "shape".

Maybe I'm missing something, but both B and D are on the C major scale. C Major has no sharps nor flats.

250K would have been a layup for me, as it was Steve Jobs favorite design concept for the iPhone. They got rid of the design on the iPhone a couple of years ago. I also remembered Andy Card whispering to the President before the choices came up. She is on the trivia circuit, as well as her plus one. Maybe she was at TCONA?
