Time Period

Ice Age





Question 115 of the Impossible Quiz Book is the fifteenth question of the Book's third chapter, and the second one to take place during an ice age in history. You're asked "Which is the coldest?". The possible options are "Modelling clay", "Pleistocene", "Dough" and "Papier Mâché".

Technically, these four options are referring to semisolid materials that can be be changed into different shapes without losing their consistency. However, the one that was meant to be written as "Plasticine" was instead written as "Pleistocene". This is no mistake, however: the Pleistocene is the time period which lasted from about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, spanning an important period of repeated glaciations.

This means that, while the three modelling materials might be cold, it's quite obvious the correct answer is actually "Pleistocene", since it probably was quite the freezing cold era. Click it to proceed.
