Quiz answers:

Here are the answers to the 1970s trivia quiz.  To review the questions go here, or if you’re reading this on the website, just scroll down.

 1. B   2. C     3. B     4. D    5. A     6. C     7. A      8. D      9. C     10.  C     11. D     12. C

Notes:

No. 3.  The Vietnam War ended on April 30, 1975 with the fall of Saigon.

 No. 7.  Chia Pets were the big rage in the 1970s.  The Hula Hoop was introduced in 1958 by the Wham-O toy company. Beanie Babies came on the market in 1993, and Pokemon Go is only about seven years old.

No. 10.  The other seemingly difficult question was to name the event that did not occur in the 1970s. All of the listed events, such as the 55 MPH National Speed Limit Law (imposed in 1975 to help save gasoline) took place in the 1970s except the crash of the Pan Am jet over Scotland.  That happened in 1988.  BTW, it took Little League, founded in 1939, until 1974 to permit girls to play. The decision was the result of a lawsuit.  And, Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Eileen Brennan and others starred in The Sting which won the best picture Oscar in 1973.
