Question 3
BOB DYLAN - Positively 4th Street - April 13th, 1966 Australia

In a certain book, the answer to life, the universe, and everything turns out to be 42. Scientists then have to come up with the exact question-which some suggest should be, "How many roads must a man walk down?" Who is the author of this book in question?

Stephen King
B
Evelyn Waugh
C

Question 4

"Yes n' how many seas must a ____ dove sail / Before she sleeps in the sand?" What adjective is missing from the blank?

A
Black
B
White
C
Green
D
Yellow
Question 4 Explanation: 
Since the dove is a common symbol of peace, the obvious meaning of this question is: "how long will men continue to war with one another?" But it may also allude to Genesis 8:8: "Also [Noah] sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground: But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot..." The dove cannot sleep in the sand because the consequence of man's sin--the flood--is still upon the earth. Dylan's question, then, may be: "When will man cease to sin so that the consequences of his sin--in this case the brutality of war--will recede?"
