More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Trojan Horse is a famous tale in Greek mythology about how the Greeks managed to enter the city of Troy during the Trojan War to win the war. After 10 years of sieging, the Greeks pretended to withdraw, leaving the horse as a sort of victory trophy. Of course, the Trojans took the bait, took the horse inside the walls, and the Greek warriors inside opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, who proceded to destroy the city of Troy.
