    • Thanks for your comment. Jotomy. Your 5/10 is an okay score – average. Hope you played the quiz again and got it all 100% right the next time around. Isn’t this is such a cool way to learn new things! Cheers ? ?

    • Thanks for your comment, Norman. Good to know you enjoyed the quiz! Your 8/10 is excellent. ‘Who will bell the cat’ refers to the practice of having a bell tied around a cat’s neck to ring as it walks. Annoying for the cat! Done for a variety of reasons, mainly to do with mice. Cheers ? ?

    • Never mind. Its the learning that counts. All you have to do is play the quiz again and you will most likely get it all 100% right. This is a great way to learn new things! Thanks ?
