Correct response: What is the Equator?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
There are many equatorial markers located on the Equator, ostensibly to attract tourism to the respective areas. Other African markers can be found in Kenya, Gabon, and São Tomé and Príncipe; in South America, Ecuador has no fewer than four.
Not having seen the game yet when I’m doing this write-up, I’m curious to see if the reference to Lake Victoria draws out any incorrect responses of “the source of the Nile River”.
