You see here:       
a uranium wand'Saruman!' he cried, and his voice grew in power and authority.
'Behold, I am not Gandalf the Grey, whom you betrayed. I am
Gandalf the White, who has returned from death. You have no
colour now, and I cast you from the order and from the Council.'
He raised his hand, and spoke slowly in a clear cold voice.
'Saruman, your staff is broken.' There was a crack, and the
staff split asunder in Saruman's hand, and the head of it
fell down at Gandalf's feet. 'Go!' said Gandalf. With a cry
Saruman fell back and crawled away.

I give this an E for Externally visible smile, as opposed to just an nod of appreciation.
And, appropriately, the test question asks what represents a wand'Saruman!' he cried, and his voice grew in power and authority.

Gandalf the White, who has returned from death. You have no

I thought this one would make a better first impression than some of my other ideas. Some of my jokes can be... out there.

w00t. All uranium wands should be wands of polymorph (radioactive mutations). And all glass (breakable) wands should be wands of wishing.

Always nice to see a new idea.... well, always nice to see a new, relevant, and amusing idea.

"And all glass (breakable) wands should be wands of wishing."

Oh dear GodGoddesses and Gods operate in ones, threesomes, or whole
pantheons of nine or more (see Religion). Most of them claim
to have made the world, and this is indeed a likely claim in
the case of threesomes or pantheons: Fantasyland does have
the air of having been made by a committee. But all Goddesses
and Gods, whether they say they made the world or not, have
very detailed short-term plans for it which they are determined
to carry out. Consequently they tend to push people into the
required actions by the use of coincidence or Prophecy, or just
by narrowing down your available choices of what to do next:
if a deity is pushing you, things will go miserably badly until
there is only one choice left to you.

Agreed with Callie. How much more sadistic do you need to make this game?

Wishing would make more sense as 'glowing wands'... except those don't actually exist in Nethack. I must be thinking of ADoM.

Heh, for once the question didn't screw me. First it asked for "useful tool" and I always put that the wrong way around. The next question was weapon (which I also put the wrong way). Not this time. Tada.

If wands of wishing would always be glass, they could be identified without using a scrollAnd I was gazing on the surges prone,
With many a scalding tear and many a groan,
When at my feet emerg'd an old man's hand,
Grasping this scroll, and this same slender wand.
I knelt with pain--reached out my hand--had grasp'd
Those treasures--touch'd the knuckles--they unclasp'd--
I caught a finger: but the downward weight
O'erpowered me--it sank. Then 'gan abate
The storm, and through chill aguish gloom outburst
The comfortable sun. I was athirst
To search the book, and in the warming air
Parted its dripping leaves with eager care.
Strange matters did it treat of, and drew on
My soul page after page, till well-nigh won
Into forgetfulness; when, stupefied,
I read these words, and read again, and tried
My eyes against the heavens, and read again.

In typical Dudley fashion, the follow-up would be "You irradiate yourself with pure energy!" Nicely done.

Glass wands could be wands of lightStrange creatures formed from energy rather than matter,
lights are given to self-destructive behavior when battling
foes.

is what I was thinking too. But people would complain about that making things easier for the playerThese strange creatures live mostly on the surface of the
earth, gathering together in societies of various forms, but
occasionally a stray will descend into the depths and commit
mayhem among the dungeon residents who, naturally, often
resent the intrusion of such beasts. They are capable of
using weapons and magic, and it is even rumored that the
Wizard of Yendor is a member of this species.
