Our quizmaster, Paul, advises: “The questions which proved the most difficult, with only one correct out of six, were the Albanian Mount Korab, the mercury in the strip light, and, ironically, the Haber-Bosch process for ammonia.”
Congratulations, Emsworth Habs! An Amazon gift certificate is on its way to you. And bear in mind that one you has to set next year’s quiz.
And here are the answers. Paul says that if anyone has a dispute over their score he’ll be happy to review their entry form!
