I think we should call it the (T)GKQ, rather than TTQ. Though it doesn't sound as good... :oops2:

It makes sense in context, but just seeing that screenshot on its own with "GOD" written on his chef's hat makes it look really ludicrous! :fou2:

Actually I'll allow it. Deoxyribose is indeed the sugar to which the D refers, even if the full DNA molecule is named "deoxyribonucleic acid". (So technically the "se" should be replaced by a hyphen in the answer.)

Question 10: Mature enough to complain about it.
Answer with two words.
The first part of the sentence is a clue to a four letter word.
Add one letter to that word to give the answer to the second part of the sentence.
(e.g. Edge and Hedge)

That's not it either! Actually, this is quite a hard one, so I'll give a little hint: "fruit".

Nope. One of the words is usually used in a fruit-related context, but neither of the words is actually "fruit" itself.

All may reanswer.
