“Jeopardy!” has been one of most beloved primetime game shows in America for decades. Three contestants duke it out answering trivia questions in several categories, including a very popular one — U.S. history. There have been nearly 700 questions about the country’s past on the show since 1984.
“Jeopardy!” is different from other game shows by way of an unconventional approach. Answers to questions, or clues, are presented to contestants, and they have to reply in the form of a question.
