Answers and results







Another holiday quiz for you.There is no theme as such this time, but you will notice something about the answers, which will help you as you proceed.


As before, however few, or however many, words there are in the full answer, only one word (in singular form) is required in answer to each of the 25 questions.Scoring: 25 questions, two points for each correct one word answer, one point for a near miss.Closing date:Good Friday


I have a further observation, and an apology, to make.Unfortunately, having chosen a set of subject categories for the questions, I found that MS Word had a mind of its own and it has scattered the questions all over the place, so that not one of them has ended up in the right category.I donít suppose this will bother you at all, but I wouldnít wish you to be misled.


Good luck.Iíll publish the answers and a high score table on Easter Monday.
