Depends on the species, but most have 5 so I'm guessing that's what you're

> differ from most other animals' jaws?
 
The upper and lower jaws are not hinged together at the back, but
move independently. I accepted "not attached to the cranium" and
generously scored "detachable" -- which was not accepted on protest in
the original game -- as almost correct. 4 for Stephen. 3 for Pete.
 
> 2. How many gill slits does a shark have on each side of its body?
 
From 5 to 7. Accepting any of these. (And this was how this
one worked in the original game!) 4 for Stephen and Bruce.
2 for Dan Blum.
 
> 3. What is the skeleton of a shark made of?
 
Cartilage. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Calvin, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque,
Pete, Jason, Bruce, and Gareth.
 
> 4. What sense is 10,000 times keener in a shark than a human?
 
Smell. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Calvin, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Pete,
Jason, Bruce, and Gareth.
 
 
> 5. This largest shark is a slow-moving filter feeder that feeds

Whale shark. 4 for Stephen, Calvin, Dan Blum, Pete, Bruce,
and Gareth.

Jason, Bruce, and Gareth.

Hammerheads. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Calvin, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque,
Pete, Jason, Bruce, and Gareth.

Great white shark. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Tilque, and Gareth.
3 for Calvin.
 
 
> Canadian provinces and territories and said Alberta, Manitoba,
> and the Northwest Territories, the answer would be Saskatchewan.
 
> 1. Utah, Idaho, Oregon.
 
Nevada. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Tilque, Peter, Pete, Jason,
and Erland.
 
Wyoming does not border Oregon. Nebraska does not border any one
of the three states named.
 
> 2. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois.
 
Iowa. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Pete, Jason,
and Bruce.
 
Neither Ohio nor Michigan nor Indiana has a land border with
Minnesota, and Ohio doesn't border Wisconsin or Illinois either.
The reason the preamble specified land borders is that if
water borders count, then Michigan *is* another correct answer.
It has borders with Illinois in L. Michigan and with Minnesota in
L. Superior. See:
 
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Asu_YtDrWf4/TxZO6IGkmPI/AAAAAAAAAsI/FvhAwF4Dxak/s1600/newmidwest.gif
 
In the original game there was no such specification and the answer
Michigan was accepted on protest.
 
> 3. New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware.
 
New Jersey. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Peter,
Pete, Erland, Bruce, and Gareth.
 
Maryland does not border New York.
 
> 4. South Dakota, Colorado, Iowa.
 
Nebraska. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Calvin, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque,
Peter, Pete, Erland, and Bruce. 2 for Gareth.
 
Wyoming does not border Iowa. Oregon does not border any one of
the three states named.
 
> 5. Indiana, Ohio, Illinois.
 
Kentucky. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Pete, Jason,
Erland, and Bruce.
 
Again, Michigan would be only correct if we counted the water border
in L. Michigan with Illinois. West Virginia does not border Illinois
or Indiana, and Kansas does not border any one of the three states
named.
 
 
> 6. Kansas, Illinois, Oklahoma.
 
Missouri. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Peter, Pete,
Jason, Erland, and Bruce.
 
Nebraska does not border either Illinois or Oklahoma. Neither Ohio
nor Indiana borders any one of the three states named.
 
> 7. Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas.
 
New Mexico. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Peter,
Pete, Jason, and Bruce. 2 for Gareth.
 
Kansas does not border Texas. Missouri does not border Texas
or Oklahoma. And Nevada does not border any one of the three
states named.
 
> 8. West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana.
 
Ohio. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Tilque, Pete, Erland, and Bruce.
3 for Calvin.
 
Illinois does not border West Virginia. Tennessee does not
border West Virginia or Ohio. Virginia does not border Indiana.
Mississippi does not border any one of the three states named.
 
> 9. Ohio, Maryland, Kentucky.
 
West Virginia. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Pete,
and Bruce.
 
Pennsylvania does not border Kentucky. Virginia does not border Ohio.
Tennessee does not border Ohio or Maryland. Louisiana does not
border any one of the three states named.
 
> 10. Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee.
 
Arkansas. 4 for Stephen, Joshua, Dan Blum, Dan Tilque, Peter, Pete,
Jason, Erland, and Bruce.
 
Alabama does not border Louisiana. Missouri does not border Louisiana
or Mississippi. West Virigina does not border any one of the three
states named. But on all these questions, I applaud the spirit
of guessing.

These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2017-02-13,
and should be interpreted accordingly.
 
On each question you may give up to two answers, but if you give
both a right answer and a wrong answer, there is a small penalty.
Please post all your answers to the newsgroup in a single followup,
based only on your own knowledge. (In your answer posting, quote
the questions and place your answer below each one.) I will reveal
the correct answers in about 3 days.
 
All questions were written by members of 5 Easy Pieces and are
used here by permission, but have been reformatted and may have
been retyped and/or edited by me. For further information see
