@Mi-AmigoJust have to say this did not appear in my Unread posts today!

I saw it as I checked my emails, and had one where you had mentioned me. It was WRQ!

Back to the quiz...all I can say is, I'm so pleased I have checked the periodic table (some time ago) as girls didn't do Chemistry when I was at school!! joy

Re: White Room Quiz Mon 19 Apr 2021

Thank you @Cleoriff 

I don`t know if I`ve had any problems with posts in unread, but I`ll check.

As to today`s quiz, good to know you previously checked up on periodic table.

Hope you like some of the questions in today`s WRQ - a good mix of subjects and questions this time but some might need thinking about Thinking

Good luck.

Thank you @TheresaV 

I hope the worried look in the gif is not a reflection on reaction to the questions in today`s WRQ.

You could always make an educated guess which might pay off.

Hope you like some of the subjects and questions.

Good luck.
