Here are the answers to this week’s quiz:
1. C. It was 100 years ago. Turkey immediately responded to the pope’s statement by recalling its ambassador and accusing Francis of spreading hatred and “unfounded claims.” Historians estimate that up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I, an event widely viewed by scholars as the first genocide of the 20th century.
2. E. Jordan Spieth took his place among the best in the game when he closed with a 2-under 70 for a four-shot victory over Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose, becoming the second-youngest champion behind Tiger Woods to wear a green jacket.
3. C. The terror designation has been a stain on Cuba’s pride and a major stumbling block for efforts to mend ties between Washington and Havana. In a message to Congress, Obama said the government of Cuba “has not provided any support for international terrorism” during the past six months. Cuba officially will be removed from the terror list 45 days after the president’s message was sent to Congress.
4. C. Shar Lichty, an organizer with the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane, said she is running for Spokane mayor, declaring that she is “one of the people” and drawing a contrast with Condon, whom she called the “millionaire mayor.”
5. D. The athletic teams of the United States Military Academy will be called Army West Point and don new logos, uniforms and colors. The academy will continue to use Black Knights as a nickname. The athletic department officially changed the nickname to Black Knights from the previous moniker, Cadets, in 1999.
