Quiz Time (6)

I’ve got into the habit of publishing these questions, but savour them because there is only one more set to come after this batch.

You know the drill by now, just for fun, answers below.

In previous weeks I’ve apologised for some UK-specific questions, but for this set you might actually have an advantage, especially if you’re in the USA. But to balance it out, there’s definitely one there, so you can have a free pass on the last question… unless you’re mega-brainy 🤣
