Question 1: Who first proposed the idea of daylight saving time?

  • George Hudson
  • George Washington
  • Winston Churchill

Correct Answer: George Hudson

Fact: A keen amateur entomologist from New Zealand, George Hudson liked the idea of having more daylight for collecting insects after work. He presented his idea to the Wellington Philosophical Society in 1895. However, his idea wasn't applied until 1908, when Port Arthur, Canada, became the first city in the world to enact daylight saving time.

Question 2: Which state doesn’t observe daylight saving time?

  • California
  • Iowa
  • Hawaii

Correct Answer: Hawaii

Fact: Hawaii and Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Nation) are the only US states that don't change the clocks in March and October. Hawaii's proximity to the equator means there is little change in daylight hours during the year while Arizona's desert climate made an extra hour of sunlight during the hottest months of the year less appealing.

Question 3: In which country can you find the world’s largest clockface?

  • Canada
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Malaysia

Correct Answer: Saudi Arabia

Fact: Mecca in Saudi Arabia is home to the Makkah Royal Clock Tower. Standing at nearly 2,000 feet, the tower is topped with a clock whose four faces have a diameter of 141 feet.
