Question 6 has now expired, and the answer is Charles de Gaulle, who held the office of President of France and Co-Prince of Andorra from 8 January 1959 to 28 April 1969. He governed with a heavy hand, controlling television and radio, and resulting in strikes and sit-ins in 1968. He tried to transform the Senate into an advisory body, but failed, resulting in his retirement from the office on 28 April 1969.

Question 8 has bit the dust. The correct answer is Royale With Cheese, but Royale Cheese is also acceptable. Here's the quote:
Vincent: And you know what they call a... a... a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
Jules: They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?
Vincent: No man, they got the metric system. They wouldn't know what the f*** a Quarter Pounder is.
Jules: Then what do they call it?
Vincent: They call it a Royale with cheese.
Jules: A Royale with cheese. What do they call a Big Mac?
Vincent: Well, a Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it le Big-Mac.
Jules: Le Big-Mac. Ha ha ha ha. What do they call a Whopper?

Answer: Kenny

If flies of the genus Drosophilia has a mutant copy of the Ken gene (named for the doll), they develop with no external genitalia. Likely, having a homozygous copy of this gene, named for an animated character, causes Drosophilia flies to die within two days. Name the gene.

Yes. A | B is true if A is true, if B is true, or if A and B are true.

And also, putting parentheses in #17:

(The answer to Statement 1 or the answer to Statement 4) is alphabetically in front of the answer to Statement 5.

Now wasn't that logic fun? A full solution follows:
Starting with 16, it can only be f, thus 13 is also f. By 13 being f, both 11 and 2 are both t. By 2 being true, 6 is true, and then 3 is true. Given that 3 and 6 are true, then 19 is t, 7 is f, and 15 is f. 15 is also proven to be false because 7 is f and 3 is t, making 15 f. Next, you can prove that 20 is f. 1 is f. 16 is f, so 9 is t. So far, there are 6 true answers, so 12 is t. Statements 4, 5, 8, 10, 13, 14, 17 and 18 remain. Since 12 is t, 5 is t. We know that 1 is f and 5 is t, so 17 is t, giving that 14, 18 and 8 are also true. Only 10 and 4 remain, and there are 12 t and 5 f answers. The only possible answer for these remaining two questions is 10 t and 4 f.
That gives the final answer to be FTTFT|TFTTT|TTFTF|FTTTF

Question 11 is as dead as the Philips CD-i, which sold for $700 and was soon replaced by the graphically superior PlayStation, after selling only 700,000 units. Ironically, the CD-i format was a joint venture between Philips and Sony in 1986.

The answer is bone marrow. It produces red blood cells platelets, white blood cells and stem cells. As we age, red bone marrow is converted into yellow bone marrow (due to the fat content), which don't produce blood cells. Yellow marrow can be turned back into red marrow if production needs to be boosted. medulla ossea would also have been an acceptable answer.
