Questions, Questions

What kind of person likes to watch shows like Jeopardy, and why?

As we all know, and as journalists are taught to ask, there are various kinds of questions: Who? What? Where? When? How? and Why? To that list I can add at least two more: Whose? and What kind of?

The simplest questions — Who? What? Where? When? — involve just identifications of relationships between words (names for people and things, geographic locations, and times) and other aspects of the entities described by those words (pictures, phrases, relationships like ownership and authorship, and so on).
