    1. I got it correct.
    2. I pass it about once a month, but I thought the base says “Linne” on it.

      I used “Linnaeus” because that’s the way he is mentioned in most history books. “Linne” was his name after he was raised to the nobility. If I were marking a test, I’d give credit for either version.
