My Indian friend Jamal recently participated in the well-known TV quiz show Who wants to be a millionaire?. You might have heard or read about Jamal's spectacular success; the media reported on it extensively.

Here is what Jamal told us about his 500 Euro question:

I knew the answer to the 500 Euro question right away, even before Prem Kumar started to read the four answers; however, I didn't spot it until he was done reading.

Answer A was the exact opposite of what the man normally asked for. B was much too Grecian for him, and when you made it with one of those, you usually didn't use vodka (which he preferred). Answer C described the type of glass it was contained in, and not how it was made, and I certainly didn't recall him constantly being at a New Year's celebration. Hence I gave D as my answer. Prem asked if it was my final decision. I said yes. Correct, once again, a big shiny smile from Prem, and we moved on to the next question.

What was the 500 Euro question?
What were the four possible answers A, B, C, D?

The 500 Euro question was:

How does James Bond usually order his favorite drink?

With answers:

A. stirred, not shaken
B. with an olive
C. in a champagne glass
D. shaken, not stirred

  • $\begingroup$ I prefer the olive over the Ouzo that others have answered. Olives usually go with a Gin martini. The question could also be: How does James Bond order a Martini. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 6, 2015 at 16:04
