In what language was Anne Frank's original diary first published?
'Phone a Friend' lifeline used
• A: Dutch • B: English
• C: French • D: German
Not sure of the answer, David used his Phone a Friend lifeline to call his mom, Jean. She said that the answer was D: German because Anne was hidden in by "those people in Holland". Still unsure, David walked with $500,000. The right answer was A: Dutch. If David had to go for the million, he would not have taken his mom's advice and went with C: French, which would drop him back to $32,000. So, walking away was a smart move.
