@Cleoriff 

The four original members of The Who - not the current line-up [in studio or on tour]

Hope that helps thumbsup

@EmilieT  It's the Chemistry one I will struggle with. I know a few of the numbers, mainly those associated with 'medical chemistry' and number 3 needs a lot of thinking about!!!

@jonsie 

I just knew, when I was sorting out the questions at the weekend, you would know The Who one sweat smile

It`ll be interesting to see, when I give the results after @Cleoriff `s answers, whether you and @EmilieT got the chemistry one right; and how you got on with the others Thoughful

Re: The White Room Thursday Quiz - 12 Sept 2019

Other than Queen, The Who are my favourite group @Mi-Amigo They are my husbands favourite as well so I was pleased to see that one.

 

I think I will be making an educated guess on the Chemistry one, as I do know a lot of the numbers but would have far rather you had started at number 6.....innocent

Here we go then

 

Q1 The oldest member of The Who

I double checked about the original members as I wanted to make sure we weren't talking about The Detours or The High Numbers.

A: Oldest member - Roger Daltrey who was born in March 1944 (the same year as me) John Entwhistle was the second oldest born in Oct 1944

 

Q2 The first European to land in Australia

A: Willem Janszoon (a Dutch explorer) He landed on the western side in the 1600's. (James Cook landed on the East coast in the 1700's)

 

Q3: What in geography is a Cataract?

Good job you said Geography as I know more about eye cataracts!

A: A waterfall or any fast moving water over a steep drop.

 

Q4) Element in the periodic table with atomic number 3?

I really, really struggled with this. I know the first 3 numbers are said to be involved in the big bang. In no particular order they are Lithium, Hydrogen and Helium. (why you couldn't give me 6, 7, or 8,

I'll never know!!)

My answer is a guess....

A: Lithium Fear (I went for this as Lithium is a type of medication, a battery and the forum is powered by Lithium) joy Apologies to those who did chemistry, I was only involved in biochemistry..

 

Q5) Where was the first British Show held in 1895?

It was held at Tunbridge Wells Agricultural Show (also known as the Horseless Carriage Show)

(My dad told me his grandfather went to it)

 

Q6) Who was Catherine Earnshaw married to in Wuthering Heights?

A: Edgar Linton. I never liked this book, it was a nightmare of relationships!!

 

That's it. I 'think' I knew 4, had to think about 1 and lost sleep over the atomic element which is a pure guess!!
