Who Wants to be Millionaire

Watching who wants to be a millionaire, I was reminded of a moment that will haunt a young woman for the rest of her life. Well, she’s not that young, she’s 32, and Kathy Evans will forever be known as the dumbest person in the world. Why? Lets have a look. The question:
Which of the following is the largest?
A) A Peanut
B) An Elephant
C) The Moon
D) Hey, who you calling large?

Now it is explainable how one might not know the answer straight off the get-go. There was a man on the moon, and men do ride on elephants. She used her 50/50, which got rid of the A and D. She was then left with the difficult task of choosing what had more mass, land mammal, or something that weighs 1/81st the weight of the entire earth. However, she was now even more confused, for the answers that she was leaning towards were A and D.
She phoned a friend, who immediately answered “The moon”. Kathy then argued with her friend about the answer.
Come on Betsy, are you sure? said Evans. How sure are you? Puh, that can’t be it. The statement that caught my attention was “I just don’t know if I can trust Betsy”. She’s not all that bright.” Upon using her final lifeline, 98% of the audience agreed it was the moon.
Still, Evans was unsure. She decided to go with her gut.

She actually answered “an elephant”. How could she live for 32 years on earth, and not know this answer? [Source]
