What about Bose-Einstein Condensates? I'm not sure if they have made them yet, but they are a 5th matter.
May 15th, 2011 at 21:44 GMT
lets just go with ones we know exist

We most certainly do know Bose-Einstein condensates exist, the only ambiguous state would be a fermionic condensate, the question being whether it could be called a state of matter. Comments: e=mc^2 is not a theory, it is the equation of (non-relativistic) mass-energy equivalence, proposed in the theory of General Relativity; should technically be atomic number for helium but I'm not fussed; gametes are also eukaryotic but split via meiosis not mitosis; smallest part is ambiguous but gluons would be considered smaller.

You might consider rewording the quiz instructions to say 'can you ANSWER...' since you really don't want to 'name' the questions.
