    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #337

    Question

    What is the difference between brass and bronze?

    Answer

    Brass and bronze are both copper alloys. Bronze is actually considered a subclassification of brass, sometimes referred to as "leaded brass." Bronze tends to be more golden colored and brass more yellow. Bronze is also more malleable than brass.
