Each week, there are EIGHT questions, from a range of categories.

 

As promised, one question is in the Space category, which missed out by one vote from being in the People`s Choice Quiz last week                                                                                

 

                                                           THIS WEEK`S EIGHT QUESTIONS

 

Q1 [Space]: Where, on the Moon, was the lunar module of Apollo 13 scheduled to land ?

 

Q2 [Chemistry]: Which element has the chemical symbol B ?

 

Q3 [Film/Movies]: Who won the Oscar for Best Actress four times - between 1930s and 1980s ?

 

Q4 [Games]: Which letter tile in the game Scrabble is the only one worth 5 points ?

 

Q5 [History]: Who was the British monarch from 1727 to 1760 ?

 

Q6 [Literature]: Which well-known novel has the opening line

      "Christmas won`t be Christmas without any present", grumbled Jo, lying on the rug

 

Q7 [Places]: What is the State capital of New York State, in the USA ?

 

Q8 [Structures]: Where [city and country] is the Temple of the Golden Pavillion ? 

 

The White Room Thursday Quiz will be open to all members of the Community.

Those who want to take part will need to pm [private message] me [Mi-Amigo] with their answers between 00.01 [one minute after midnight] and 23.59 [11.59pm] on Thursday 12 March 2020.

Please do not post your answers on the thread.

The answers - and the results for each player taking part - will be posted on Friday morning.

              EIGHT correct answers               SIX correct answers                     FOUR correct answers

                  SILVER THINKER                     BRONZE THINKER                             RED THINKER

                                                       

                                                                THE RULES

Each member must pm [private message] their answers to me [Mi-Amigo] between 00.01 [one minute after midnight] and 23.59 [11.59pm] tomorrow - on Thursday 12 March 2020.

No member is to post any answer on the thread.

Any answer received before 00.01 on Thursday and/or after 23.59 [11.59pm] on Thursday will be declared void.

No googling, wiki, youtube search for answers.

 

As one question was exceptionally hard last week, there is no QI-style question [where the answer is not what most people assume] this week, although a couple of questions may prove tricky.

 

The White Room Thursday Quizz is open to all members.

I hope new members, who have recently joined the Community, and members who have not taken part before, will join the "regulars" with this week`s quiz. 

 

Please feel free to post any comments on the questions - but not the answers - on this thread.

If you have any questions about the quiz, please ask and I will reply here.

 

Thank you everyone for your interest and for making the quiz so popular.

I hope everyone enjoys this week`s White Room Thursday Quiz.

Thanks @Cleoriff for your comment.

That is what I hoped with this week`s quiz - a couple of questions which are not brain-scramblers but need a bit of thought [and, possibly, a good memory?] Thinking D'oh!

Looking forward to the pm with your answers tomorrow. Good luck.

Thanks @MI5 

Although there might be a couple [?] of questions you`re not so keen on, I`m sure you`ll give them a good shot and look forward to what answers you give in your pm tomorrow. Good luck,

I think I know 6, the other two will be in guesswork territory.
