Preferred Question Text
I am going to give you the name of a category. I want you to say as many words as you can that belong in that category. For example, if I gave you the category "tools", you would say hammer, saw, wrench", and so on. I do not want you to include proper nouns. Proper nouns are names of people, states, etc. I also do not want you to just change the ending of the word either, like 'thirty-one, thirty-two,' etc. I will give you sixty seconds to say as many words as possible for each of the three categories.
