Neville has $20,000 in his bank and all his lifelines available. He didn't expect to get this far with them all.

$30,000: Elliptical, spiral and irregular are the three main types of what?
A - DNA strands
B - tornados
C - snail shells
D - galaxies

Something came into Neville's head as soon as he saw the question. He says that DNA strands are double-helixes so that isn't it. He thinks the Milky Way is a spiral galaxy.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (galaxies)


$50,000: Although best known for creating Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle also spent almost ten years in the medical field, specializing in what?
A - dentistry
B - psychiatry
C - ophthalmology
D - pediatrics

Neville is pulled toward one of the answers but doesn't say which one it is. He opts not to use a lifeline and makes A his final answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (ophthalmology)

Although I knew this one, the question is somewhat misleading. He did have an ophthalmic practice, but it wasn't for ten years, and it was a failure.
