I just thought – throughout this crisis, Age UK Wiltshire have been printing a weekly Newsletter for clients, and I volunteered to set some quiz questions. I thought I’d share them here.
Bear in mind, they are for a UK audience, so some of them will be quite UK-specific.
I’ve tried to pitch some of them as really easy, some as head-scratching, but none are impossible. Questions that nobody can answer is not my idea of fun. And, one of my friends might recognise some of their maths questions, which I stole from her! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
I must’ve done forty or fifty of these things but I’ll just post the first ten for now, and post some more another day. Answers below, this is just for fun.
|1.||A grandmother has 6 grandchildren. Each grandchild was born 2 years apart, and the youngest is 10 years old. How old is the eldest?|
|2.||Which soccer teams plays its home games at Carrow Road, in yellow and green, and is nicknamed the Canaries?|
|3.||In which county is Stratford-upon-Avon?|
|4.||In what one year did the following take place: West Side Story premiered, Elvis bought the mansion which became Graceland, and the hits included Blueberry Hill, All Shook Up and Wake Up Little Susie?|
|5.||What is the longest river in the world?|
|6.||In what year did the first stretch of the M1 motorway open?|
|7.||Name the five Great Lakes of North America|

|10.||A farmer has sheep and chickens in their barn. They count 26 feet, and there are 10 animals in total. How many of each animal do they have?|

I bet you knew them all, didn’t you?
