Great Quiz

I got some good answers to these qustions. Some were different than the original answers and I don't know if they are actually right. You all may have found some additional ones to what is listed here.
Here are the answers that are given with the quiz:
1. The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends . Boxing
2. North American landmark constantly moving backward. Niagara Falls (The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.)
3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons . . Asparagus and Rhubarb.
4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside . Strawberry.
5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the bottle. (The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in placeon the tree. The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.)
6. Three English words beginning with dw Dwarf, dwell and dwindle.
7. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar. . Period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark, exclamation point, quotation marks, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.
