(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Apurva Kanneganti, a senior from Germantown, Tennessee

What are vortex and vertex?
I have to say, the writers have put up three excellent Final Jeopardy! clues this week for the semifinals. Each one of them, in my opinion, would be worthy of the regular game. This one is no different. (It might help that I myself am a bit of a word nerd and thus enjoy the “closely related words” Finals.
In that vein, one of my favorites was this one back in 2003:
GEOGRAPHIC TERMS: These 2 words are anagrams of each other & for our location now one is about 34, the other about 74
I can’t wait for the finals; those go Monday and Tuesday of next week!
