Our Earth Day Contest – Question 3

This is the last question in our Earth Day Contest, but for those of you who haven’t had a chance to answer the first two questions, you can find them here and here. Remember, you get one entry for each correct answer, and if you join our Facebook Group, you get an additional entry. All entries are due by 11:59pm Pacific Time on April 17th. The first question was posted last week, so if you missed it, just check out our archive and submit your answer.

If you answer all 3 questions correctly, AND join the Facebook Group, you can get a total of 4 entries into the contest. Without further ado, then, here is the third and final question and the possible answers, and Good Luck!
