Correct response: What is Lake Nicaragua?


Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?


More information about Final Jeopardy:

The two volcanoes form the island of Ometepe which rises from the lake. Concepcion is the active volcano on the northwest half of the island, with its most recent eruption in 2010.

Playing this clue along at home, “Central American Geography” and “shares its name with a country” led me straight to Lake Nicaragua, from a “what else could it be?” perspective, as Lake Nicaragua is easily the largest lake in Central America, and cracks the list of largest lakes in North America.

    I agree with Andy. A solvable clue for those who have made an effort to study notable examples of World Geography. For those who find Geography uninteresting… well, let’s just say that advanced skill at “Jeopardy!” is likely to be a struggle for such people.

      Plus, you have Lake Nicaragua, Lake Managua and the capital Managua, all having the same last 4 letters-agua, for “water”. Since it is Friday and seems an easy clue I’ll go for 3 correct (or how many players are left for FJ).
      Have a great weekend everybody! Aloha from Maui!

        Just to be clear : LAKE Nicaragua is the answer, since they are not asking for the country which has also the same last 4 letters.But Andy posted that already anyway.

        The scores going into the FJ! round total $13,600 so do you want to revise your prediction of 3/3. Hint, there were three players still around.

          Should have stuck with my first instinct, as I’ve been told before: geography = minus 1, foreign country = minus 1, equals 1 correct. Ah well, there is always next week.:(:(

          • john blahuta | April 6, 2018 at 1:30 pm |

            Plus, judging from the totals and all 3 DDs missed, it was probably not the most stellar game…..

  2. (Yesterday’s Jeopardy) Thanks, Richard! We do have that station in the Cincinnati, Oh area on channel 996. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the cool shows. Just The Partridge Family, Hazel, One Day At A Time, and others I wouldn’t watch. Because there was no high def. at the time, the people are scary big…

  3. Two weeks ago I wouldn’t have gotten this FJ—but having just returned from a long, incredible vacation in Nicaragua, and seeing both of these volcanoes and boating in the Lake, it was pretty easy. 😀
