Summer Solstice Quiz






21 June 2001



Here is a midsummer quiz for you.There are again 25 questions, but you will note that this is 24 + 1, a factor you should bear in mind when looking for the theme.Once you find it, Iíve no doubt the answers will not take you long.


The questions are of two types:the one and two word questions are trivia questions, with only the most important words shown.The other questions are cryptic clues, and for these the number of letters in the solution is given in each case.The type of question does not relate to the answer in any way and the questions are simply in alphabetical order, though there is a more logical order for the answers, which are all of one word.You also need to know the cut-off date, which is 22 July, when I will publish the results and answers.
