I'll risk taking flack for this, but there were some of these I absolutely did not understand. Are "tour" and "torr" actually homophones? I may be getting anally technical, but "Fahrenheit" is a scale, not an actual unit. The unit is the "degree Fahrenheit". I think this is a good idea for a quiz .... but I will admit that a lot of this went way over my head.

@TeganX7 Thanks for your input! I agree with both of your suggestions. The displayed answer is now "degree Fahrenheit" but just "Fahrenheit" is still accepted. Also, I looked up the pronunciation of "Torr" and "tour" and decided that they were dissimilar enough to change the clue.
