Got it!! I had sortta thought of that - don't know why I didn't plug it in.

OK, then first test down,now for 2 and 3 - they seem a litle harder.

Parker, shhhhh, don't tell - just give hints, OK?
Check your spelling, there's an "a" in there somewhere.

Good luck,

Most british people dont know any more about the commonwealth than anyone else :p

Would be nice if this was international. Not really a test of intelligence since it relies on certain and in some cases, culture specific, knowledge.

Gary, if you want some hints, here a big one....

q28 H B is not Holy Bible

Nancy, it's not knowledge about the commomwealth, it's knowledge in the commonwealth. The sort of things a Brit, Aussie, New Zealander would recognize, but not an American.

The second test is much less biased. I'm 15/24 now and not one is "just for Brits".

technically 14 isnt quite right it should be 15 P in a R U T since there are to types of R each with different numbers of P

Not impressed with part 2, no wonder I cant get them

#1 - just wrong there are 7 C in the W, not sure which 2 they're missing out there, aparently it originally said just 5
#3 - massively inaccurate since 206 is widely accepted as the average number of B in a H B, 208 - 214 cant be the range. In reality the range is nearer 200-300 B in an H B (since they're not more specific than that)
#15 isnt technically correct but it is the generally accepted number
#18 - terminology/semantics isnt great since the P is redundant an H is a P, there are no non-P H's
#19 facinating fact but certainly not general knowledge or a well known phrase or saying
#20 depends on the size of the P
#21 thats just getting silly and desperate
#23 - constantly changing, already out of date there are 116 now
#24 no comment.

hope part 3 is better.
