I got 27 out of 31 questions correct, but was stumped on the following 4 questions. Hook a brother up!

Do you know...

16. The major crop of Texas?

19. The most infamous flower found in Texas?

22. The current State Treasurer?

31. Why are there six flags flying over Texas?

Ready, get set, GO!!!
