Trivia Quiz Read the following story and remember the details. I will ask you a question and you will select the correct answer.

"An Illinois woman got the surprise of her life. Illinois (AP) -- It has been a hot, dry summer in this St. Louis suburb, but R.M.C. knew there was no way she could have used $74,000 worth of water. The city's utility department claimed RMC used 10 million gallons of water last month, charging her $29,787 for water, $43,581 for sewer, plus $893 for municipal tax. 'Luckily, when I opened the bill, I was sitting down,' she said.
'I could have filled every pool in southern Illinois and still not used that much water.'
She presented the bill to a public works employee at City Hall. Officials quickly determined the whopping fee was the result of a broken meter and issued a corrected bill for $32.66 -- waiving her's monthly water and sewer charges for her troubles. 'My daughter asked me if I was hoarding water during the drought,' she said. 'I told her I would, but I don't know where I would find 10 million gallon jugs.'

Now remember what you have read.
