<I>What piece of jewelry did the literary character Frodo Baggins wear to become invisible? <P>

I do not remember the fourth selection to pick from but the others were Ring, Brooch and Crown. <P>

The contestant thought it had to do with the Lord of the Rings but was not sure. He called a friend, a literature teacher, who gave him the correct choice (she said she was 99.9 percent sure 'Ring' was the correct answer). <P>

It seems someone who is making up the questions for the show likes to refer to the books (this is the second question I am aware of that referenced Tolkien's work).</I><P>

Thanks Brett!
