I went to the quiz- no pics. Refreshed- got pics! Unfortunately, the last word was missing from each question, which doesn't help on the 3 questions starting . What is circled in'

Looking forward to the tweaked version :)

I've just run through the quiz and there is a minor problem with 2 of the questions and 1 is missing.

I've sent Mark a PM and hope to have it sorted soon.

Finished successfully! Happy with my score, and learnt something along the way! (not saying what though, in case it's a clue for others)

Thanks Mike and Mark, for your time in setting it up. :)

Probably about 5/6 at the moment
Got 100% but had to guess pollen throught the process of elimination as I couldn't see anything in that cell.

Another fun quiz - Thanks to Admin and Mike.

Dont you just find it so annoying when you think you know an answer then doubt yourself opt for something else and then find you should have backed your first idea - when will I learn!

Pictures are great to look at - can they be available outside quiz?
