Peek. Copy. Save. The three cheats that you could use to help you answer the questions in Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, a television game show made for adults to answer grade-school level questions. Different countries replicated this show that originated from the United States which first aired in February 2007.
Five fifth graders appear on each show and play along on stage. The player chooses one to be their "classmate", and is called upon for assistance. One child acts as a classmate at most two questions. Each contestant have three forms of assistance, two cheats and a save available for use once up to the $500,000 question, but not including the million dollar question.
Peek shows the classmate's answer and the player may chooses whether to follow it or not. However, they may only waste if their answer was the same as their classmate's. On the other hand, copy locks the classmate's answer to yours without being able to see it. A big disadvantage if your classmate is wrong! Save meanwhile credits the player's incorrect answer with a correct answer. This is used automatically on the contestant's first incorrect response. Once all three forms of assistance are used, the children no longer play an active role in the game.
The rules change slightly for the million dollar question. The player is only shown the subject of the question before deciding if they will continue or drop out. However, if they choose to see the question, they are no longer eligible to drop out and must answer the question, with no assistance from the classmates. A wrong answer on the question will cause the contestant to drop back down to $25,000.
That's all for now! Evanesco!
