So does that look like you might know the answers to at least three of today`s questions @MI5 ?

 

A couple of the questions are not so easy @Cleoriff and might need thinking about Thinking

I`ve checked the questions.

You don`t have to go to SpecSavers. Initially, with Q7 I typed Bayham Bridge, but noticed the error and corrected it to Bayham Badger.

As to Q6, it should read 

What type of animal is a Chester White ? [not Cheshire White]

Apologies for any confusion caused
