The English name for one of the world's most useful substances employed in making fabrics comes to us from Arabic. Which of these wonderful products has a name with Arabic as its source?

Correct answer:
  • Cotton

Incorrect answers:
  • Wool
  • Flax
  • Silk

Interesting Info:
  • The word 'cotton' is originally derived from the Arab word 'qutun', and this makes sense considering that some of the world's best cotton is grown in the Middle East and in India. The Arabs played a huge role in the cotton trade, and thus the word for cotton came from the Arab traders into the European vocabulary.
