Welcome to

 question-room-thurs-quiz2.png

 

     This week`s contestant, chosen at random by @EmilieT   is

 

                                                          @RyanK1992 

 

The six questions are:

 

Q1 [people]: Who was the world`s first female Prime Minister?

 

Q2 [geography]: Where is Dogger Bank?

 

Q3 [space]: Which is the hottest planet in our Solar System (not counting the Sun)? 

 

Q4 [sport]: In which event did Daley Thompson win a gold medal in 1980 and 1984 Olympics?

 

Q5 [words]: What does a fromologist collect?

 

Q6 [TV sit-com]: What were the [character] names of Gary Sparrow`s two wives in TV sit-com Goodnight Sweetheart?

 

Hint: as usual one question is a QI-style question, where the answer is not what most people think.

 

Rules:

You can only give one answer to each question.

You can answer the questions in any order - please copy and paste the question and add your answer.

You can post all of the answers together in one posts; or post one, or more, answer in several posts; at any time between 00.01 [one minute after midnight] and 23.59 [11.59pm] tomorrow [Thursday] 21 November 2019. Please note: a second answer to any question cannot be given in these subsequent posts. 

Any answer posted before 00.01 or after 23.59 on Thursday will be declared void.

Please - no googling, Wiki, social media, Youtube in search of the answers.

 

The results, with the correct answers, will be posted either late on Thursday 21 November [after answers have been submitted] or on Friday morning 22 November 2019.

Each correct answer will be awarded a star

If you get all six questions correct, you will be awarded the Silver Thinker

The White Room Thursday Quiz is open to all members.

Last week, previous contestants - @Cleoriff and @pgn - and members - @gmarkj ; @EmilieT ; @Anonymous ; @jonsie and @Anonymous played along. Hopefully, they and last week`s contestant @Sy - and any new  

members and those who have not played before, will join in and play along by  making their own list of questions and seeing how many they can get right - but, please do not post your answers on the thread. You will be able to see how well you did when I give the correct answers late Thursday or Friday morning.

 

Thank you for your interest and good luck @RyanK1992
