@Cleoriff 

As you know, the questions are chosen by me before @EmilieT selects the contestant, so it down to the luck of the draw as to who the contestant is, so it could have been you 

Q4 [numbers] is not a trick question - there is an answer...

It`ll be interesting to see what answers you, and everyone else who is playing along, has - after I give the answers.
