My guess would be californium (Cf) - as a 'transuranic' element it has to be made by humans using alchemy a particle accelerator. ;)

Correct

Which is the most expensive substance in the list?

A. Californium
B. Cocaine
C. Diamonds
D. Plutonium

A. Californium

Going to Californium? Bring cash - this substance, a radioactive isotope, has many uses and runs a cool $27 million per gram. Cocaine costs a mere $215/gram; diamonds are a respectable $55,000/gram; and Plutonium, another radioactive isotope, is a mere $4,000 per gram.

I thought so too, but alas the answer is??

D. "One Sweet Day" - Mariah Carey/Boyz II Men

It was a sweet 16 weeks at number one for Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men. "Blurred Lines" spent a respectable 12 weeks at the top; "You Light Up My Life" was on top for 10 weeks; and "I Will Always Love You" was a close second, with 14 weeks on top.

Ten years ago (2006) it was believed that only five strains of the Ebola virus existed, all potentially fatal.  in 2006, the Marburg strain was not thought to actually be a strain of the Ebola virus.

Today (2016) there are five (5) known strains of the virus all potentially fatal.  However, the Reston virus only affects primates.  So the correct answer is four (4).

 

 

Quote

The virus family Filoviridae includes three genera: Cuevavirus, Marburgvirus, and Ebolavirus. There are five species that have been identified: Zaire, Bundibugyo, Sudan, Reston and Taï Forest. The first three, Bundibugyo ebolavirus, Zaire ebolavirus, and Sudan ebolavirus have been associated with large outbreaks in Africa. The virus causing the 2014 West African outbreak belongs to the Zaire species.
