I’ll take “Oops for $600, Alex.”

Some are calling it the most awkward response in the history of “Jeopardy!”

The answer:

“In common law, the age of this, signaling adulthood, is presumed to be 14 in boys and 12 in girls.”

The contestant’s response on Friday’s episode:

“What is the age of consent?”

The response got an immediate “no” from host Alex Trebek and “Jeopardy!” started to trend on Twitter immediately.

The correct response: “What is puberty?”
