Jeopardy is a hugely popular TV quiz show in the US that turned the quiz format upside down, providing contestants with general knowledge clues in the form of answers rather than asking them direct questions. Participants must identify the person, thing, place or idea the clue describes, phrasing the response as a question.
And NBC recently had a treat for typography fans, delivering a fonts category in the quiz. But how well would you do? See the questions below (and see our guide to the best free fonts and the best font pairings if you need to brush up).
There are five questions in the "real font of knowledge category" that came up on Jeopardy this week. The questions are as follows (watch the video above if you want to check the answers or see below).
