Correct response: What is the Magic 8-Ball?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
In spite of the Magic 8-Ball existing in some form since 1950, the patent for the updated device was filed in January 1962. It is ubiquitous today as holding a 20-sided die inside a dark blue dyed liquid. The properties of the liquid are such that it is able to randomize the response without shaking (in fact, shaking the ball interferes with its performance).
