Here are the answers for this week’s quiz:

1. C. The city is revising (again) its water rates, so that some moderate users will pay the same as or slightly less than in 2011 or 2010, and some heavier users will pay slightly more than 2010 but considerably less than last year.

2. B. The Sudanese military has attacked areas across its border with South Sudan.

3. D. Spokane is the second-largest district in the state; with the raise, Redinger would be the 13th-highest paid superintendent.

4. E. BSE is short for bovine spongiform encephalopathy, a fatal brain disease more commonly known as mad cow disease. A case was discovered in a randomly tested dairy cow that officials said was not a threat to the nation’s food supply because studies show the disease can’t be transmitted to humans from milk. The USDA said the cow was infected by a “random mutation,” not by eating tainted feed.

5. D. Humber’s perfect game was the 21st thrown in MLB history.
