I shall have to go with #3 because it is ambiguously phrased as if to be a trick question

#1 - A serious study was done to find out what monkeys sound like on helium

#2 - VY Canis Majoris is the most massive star known to Terran scientists

#3 - Castle Bravo was a high-yield fusion test designed to release the equivalent energy of 15,000,000 tons of TNT

I'm going with number 2 despite the fact that:
- "Terran" could mean a race from some sci-fi video game I haven't played
- Massive means mass not diameter
- Recently Canis Majoris is no longer the largest, the new largest is NML Cygni

and for the questions:

1) almost 40% of all photocopier faults are caused by buttock-related incidents
2) a banana is not a fruit OR a vegetable, but is actually a type of flower
3) a "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/10th of a second

I'm gonna have to go with 2
Also, Massive is a measurement of size, mass is a measurement of weight and is usually referred to as density.

1) The king of hearts is the only king without a mustache in a card deck
2) Plasma TVs use the same type of plasma that is in human blood
3) Potatoes have at least 960 roots underground

I beg to differ good sir, for mass is constant where weight is the force experienced due to gravity. on the moon your weight will be lower, but your mass will remain the same. The word "massive" has been technically used incorrectly for a long time to refer to size

And the answer was in fact 2 8) golden stars in your general direction

I was using the term weight for lack of a better word, I am familiar with the difference between weight and mass. The term Massive can be used in a variety of ways, for example you could refer to a large object as massive or you could say that the amount of mass an object has is massive, it really depends on how you use it.

Going to hazard a guess at 1

1)Domestic felines were an import to Egypt and were never native
2)The worlds mass is actually reducing
3) Shakespeare is the second most quoted writer in the English language.
