Correct response: What is Argentina?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Martin Fierro (El Gaucho Martin Fierro) is Argentina’s national poem, a lengthy epic by José Hernández. Written in Spanish, it provides a link to the historical contribution of gauchos (brave horsemen, also very adept in cattle) in the development of the country (and their role in gaining independence from Spain). Gauchos could be compared to cowboys in the American West. Today, Argentina’s fertile Pampas region is crucial to the country’s beef industry.
