Thank you for your post @Cleoriff 

Good to hear you know the answer to one question. Good luck with the rest.

It was difficult to find questions related to "one hundred", and I think some of the guestions will call for a bit of thinking time Thinking or guesses Who's there?

Thank you @TallTrees 

Nice to know you`ll be taking part in this WRQ. Good luck.

 

@gmarkj 

Some of the questions might need a bit of thinking about, or even a guess [?]. Good luck.
