Question 55
TIQB - 55



"Mostly Harmless" (book from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" saga)

Question 55 from The Impossible Quiz Book is the fifth question of Chapter 2, and also the fifth one of the Monochrome video game era. The task you're given says "Define: Earth", with the potential answers being "Moist", "Mostly harmless", "Magnificently marvellous" and "Mouldy".

The correct option in this case is "Mostly harmless", which is the name of the fifth novel of Douglas Adams's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" saga of books; the title of this book derives from a joke from the first book in the series, where the entry for Earth in the Guide consisted entirely of the word "Harmless", whereas in the revised version of the Guide, meant to include an essay resulting of one of the character's 15-year-long research, said essay was cut down to include the words "Mostly harmless" as the definition of Earth.
