Williamsville teenager appears on Jeopardy

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Williamsville teenager stepped into the spotlight for Jeopardy’s Teen Tournament.

High school sophomore Ananya Nrusimha was on Thursday night’s show. She says she has been watching the show since she was a little girl.

It came down to the final question. The category, “Novel Words.”

The question was, “This word for a person without certain abilities has made it from the realm of fantasy, to the Oxford English Dictionary.”

Ananya was in second place heading into that question. Her guess was “powerless.”

That unfortunately was wrong, the correct answer was “muggle,” from the popular book series, Harry Potter.
