Can you answer these real 'Jeopardy' questions about the economy?

Stacker Logo By Nicole Caldwell of Stacker | Slide 1 of 51: Game shows rank among television's most lasting formats, with America's connection to shows like “The Price Is Right” and “Wheel of Fortune” enduring decade after decade. Perhaps no show is as beloved as “Jeopardy!,” however, which has been a TV staple since the mid-1960s. Few shows are as revered as that game show, helmed by adored television personality Alex Trebek and featuring a backward format of providing contestants with the answers first as clues.

Show contestants work their way through Jeopardy! and Double Jeopardy! rounds, each with six categories comprised of five clues of varying difficulty and prize amounts. Almost every one of those clues and answers can be found catalogued at the fan-created “Jeopardy!” Archive (updated through April 2019), which one industrious writer at Slate downloaded to do some data scraping; he came up with the top 10 most frequently used categories in Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy!, and Final Jeopardy! rounds: 

- Jeopardy!: "Stupid Answers," "Nature," "Hodgepodge," "4-Letter Words," "Common Bonds," "Pop Music," "Potent Potables," "Sports," "Food & Drink," "Fruits & Vegetables” 

- Double Jeopardy!: "Chemistry," "Physics," "Classical Music," "Before & After," "Art," "Opera," "Art & Artists," "Ballet," "Theatre," "Architecture”

- Final Jeopardy!: "U.S. Presidents," "World Leaders," "Famous Names," "Famous Americans," "Historic Names," "Authors," "State Capitals," "Word Origins," "Business & Industry," "Americana"

We also conducted a deep dive using the archive to come up with 25 clues related to the economy, business, and money. From Gresham's Law to fiscal cliffs, this quiz spans generations of “Jeopardy!” content and represents the range of difficulty the show is famous for.

Think you have what it takes? Click through to put your financial knowledge to the test and see if you have the mettle to be a “Jeopardy!” champion like James Holzhauer or Ken Jennings.
