(Alex: That is correct, but before I ask you to make your next selection, I have some bad news. I erred a few moments ago. In your response to Turgenev in the "I.T." category, because "I" and "T" are in quotation marks, we needed the first and the last name. So we have to deduct $4,000 from you. That brings you down to $33,200. You're still in command of the board. And we're running out of time. Make another selection.)
