Although the word 'Trivia' signifies something of small importance, trivia questions and answers are gradually gaining popularity, especially among students. Such questions can be based on several topics. Common ones may include science, geography, history, general knowledge, music, sports, animals, etc. The importance of such questions is that they provide participants with the basic knowledge of the simplest of things which we tend to miss out considering that they are too trivial to be known about. However, as they say, no question is silly and no knowledge is petty...
