In Jeopardy Again!

The date was April 13, 2009.

The Category was "Lowest Common Denominator."

The amount was $400.

The "answer" was "of 1/2, 1/8, and 1/16."

The responses of the three "intelligent" contestants were:

  • 2
  • 1/16
  • No answer
Enough said....but they probably did know the name of the female character in a 16th century French opera that opened and closed in a fortnight!
