If your answer to Q10 is correct, then you`ll get a @Cleoriff
but I`m sure you`ll want to have a go at getting a Thinker
- Gold Thinker for 10 correct answers; Silver Thinker for 8 correct answers; Bronze Thinker for 6 correct answers;
Red Thinker for 4 correct answers.
I`ve tried to give a mix of categories with some easier and some not-so-easy questions, so there might be a case of some having to have a bit of a think about some of the questions .
Good luck, everyone.
