Student passes exam to win prize pack

Maybe it took a creative mind. Creative writing major Laryssa Brooks was one of a minority of entrants to get all the answers right in yesterday’s DailyNews contest—and her name was the only one drawn from a hat to choose the winner.

To the victor will go the spoils: a prize package of a mini padfolio, a small notebook, a keychain, a pen and a beautiful desktop clock, all bearing the UWindsor logo.

Fewer than one in 10 contestants emulated Brooks in correctly answering all three questions: the word examination derives from the Latin examinare, Winston Churchill complained his exams sought to expose his ignorance and—apparently, most confusingly—the letters IQ stand for Image Quality, Intelligence Quotient and Inverse Quantization. For that matter, they stand for Insidious Quiz, too.
