1. What South African region takes its name from the fact that Vasco da Gama first sighted it on December 25, 1497?

Cape of Good Hope

7. What unusual distinction is shared by all these works of art? Cassatt's Mother and Child, Degas's The Ballet Rehearsal, Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergere, Escher's Three Spheres, Fuseli's The Nightmare, Van Eyck's Arnolfini Wedding, Velazquez's Las Meninas, Vermeer's Woman with a Pearl Necklace.

There are mirrors in them, at least those I know.
