Thank you @Cleoriff 

Hope all goes well for you with your hospital appointment.

Pleased you think today`s WRQ "seems OK" yahoo.

As you said, there might be a couple of questions which need thinking about Thinking - as there are two new subjects - ALPHABET and COLOURS - and a couple of trickier questions.
