The Big Weekly Quiz 💰🛒🌴 30/04/22

This quiz is designed to test how much you’ve retained from this week’s editions of Watson’s Daily. Here are some things to keep in mind, so please read before you dive in!
  • Try to answer the questions by really thinking about the answer – and do NOT Google them because you will just be cheating yourself!
  • At the end of every question you will see a day in CAPITAL LETTERS, which is the edition where that question originated from.
  • If you don’t know the answer, go back to the edition that contains the question and you will be able to find it.
I do things this way because if you see the answer in context, you are far more likely to remember it rather than if I told you the answer straight away like in a pub quiz! I’m trying to help you learn! That said, best of luck 😉👍

This is a timed quiz. You will be given 15 seconds per question. Are you ready?
