TEN ROUNDS IN TEN DAYS

Did you miss the BRSC General Knowledge Quiz on Tuesday 24th November 2016?

Over the Festive Season the 10 Rounds from that quiz set by Phil Draper have been posted on here.

If you enjoyed doing these questions why not join us for the next quiz in February 2017.

Round TEN below on Utter Trivia, (and it is exactly that), is the last round in the November Quiz.

If you scored less than half marks overall in the 10 rounds you are probably a well balanced individual.

If you have scored more than 50 marks out of 100 you may need to rethink your life priorities.

The Answers to Round Nine and Round Ten are also included below.
