Hypothesis

People are googling HQ Trivia questions during rounds.

Experiment

I kept track of all of the questions asked during the January 11, 2018 3:00 PM game of HQ Trivia, then looked up keywords on Google Trends. Below are screenshots of each question (with the correct answer), along with some keyword I unscientificly determined was some significant keyword from the question.

Question 1

Question 2

Question 3

I haven’t figured out what this means yet, but there might be some interesting data by looking at the general locations where people are searching from:

Question 4

Question 5

Question 6

Question 7

Question 8

Question 9

Question 10

Question 11

Question 12

Conclusion

People are googling the answers to HQ Trivia questions during games, though their success in the matter is still yet to be determined.

That said, it’s difficult to determine whether or not people are looking up the questions in order to answer them before the time limit, or if they’re just looking them up after the answer is revealed to satiate their curiosity.
