Good luck @MI5 

 

Just a little note for all our WRQ quizzers 

A couple of questions in today`s WRQ are rated "difficult", and one is possibly the hardest question in its category so far [and I`m not saying which question or which category]. So might be thinking hats on ??

I take it that means there are a couple of questions to think about @Cleoriff ?
