Thank you @Cleoriff 

Pleased you think this is "a lovely quiz".

I think there is one question which you might well like and another which you well don`t like 😂 and Q8 just needs a bit of thinking about... 😁

Thank you @lewys-gp 

You didn`t do too bad last time - getting a Red Thinker.

Look forward to pm with your answers later.

 

Thank you @Cleoriff 

Good to know the chemistry question [the one I thought you wouldn`t like] hasn`t caught out out.

Look forward to pm with your answers later.
