Trivia: Which of these was NOT used for lighting before electricity?
The correct answer is Flashlight
So why is this answer correct? : Before electricity, people used animal fat, oil, and wax candles for lighting. Wealthier people used wax candles and oil lamps, while poorer households used tallow candles or quick-burning rush lights dipped in animal fat. The flashlight wasn’t invented until the 1890s, and electricity supplied directly to homes wasn’t common until the late 19th century.
