Filling The Pub Trivia Void Day 5 – Friday, March 20, 2020

Editor’s note: This is part of a series of trivia question sets I’m writing to help fill the trivia void left by local pub trivia companies having to cease operations during this COVID-19 crisis time. Answers will be provided in the comments. There will be two rounds of 10 questions each, two mystery rounds  and one final question. Hope you have fun!

Just to ensure there is a good category mix, all of these categories mirror categories from a previous Sporcle Live game (or are very, very similar). So these aren’t questions involving things “only I would know,” LOL!

1. Constitution – What Constitutional amendment involves unreasonable searches and seizures?
