Re: White Room Quiz - April Fool/April 1st

Thank you @MI5 and @TallTrees 

It was fun trying to find "April Fool/April 1st" related questions.

I admit that some of the questions are not easy and some might be head-scratchers Thinking

but there are no tricks or hoaxes [even though it is April 1st/April Fool`s Day tomorrow] and all the questions have genuine answers.

Good luck.

Thank you @Cleoriff 

Pleased you think these are great questions. Good luck with your answers.

I couldn`t really use the "spaghetti tree hoax" as that would`ve been a little bit too easy for all the clever quizzers who take part in the White Room Quiz.
