US game show host Alex Trebek, who presided over the "brain Olympics" at Google's campus in the California city of Mountain View, added that little of the large island is fit for farming. The three year-olds had the answer to that final question - Greenland - and they held a narrow lead. Rare species of owl, tortoise and porcupine were used as clues for questions, along with video clips, tribal drums and recordings of dying languages. Cities, waterways, volcanoes, islands and other geographic points had to be deduced from hints, and errors spotted in maps. Each of the finalists was stumped at one point or another in a play-off said to pack some of the toughest questions heard at the year-old competition.
