Some of the questions in The New York Times' 'The Year in Questions' quiz are about money-related news. Here's a sample.

During breaks between parades and football games, here’s a productive way to spend time on New Year’s Day: Ben Schott of The New York Times has produced “The Year in Questions.” Challenge yourself. It’s a news quiz and, while some of the answers are obvious, many are difficult.

Here are some of the questions that have a personal finance or money-related bent.

First off, you have to match the person with a notable statement that person made in 2013. Try this one:

If you are going to have a couple of drinks, you stay at home and that’s it. You don’t make a public spectacle of yourself.

Who said this during a career meltdown? “Inappropriate and hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable.”

Now, try to answer these questions. We’ve provided a category for each question that might also include a hint.

  • Entertainment: “What unusual beat did The Denver Post hire Ricardo Baca to cover?”
  • Food safety: “What animal’s meat was found to have contaminated food across Europe?”
  • Pay equity: “What country voted against limiting executive pay to 12 times that of the lowest-paid employees?”
  • Social media: “Who was ‘Carlos Danger’?”
  • College costs: “Chegg began trading on the New York Stock Exchange; what does the company provide?”
  • Gadgets: “What are the 5C and 5S?”
  • Money: “What was redesigned to feature a ‘color-changing bell in an inkwell?”

Go ahead and try the entire quiz. It’s fun. You can find all of the answers here.
