This month we are having a quiz. Each day in February a different question will be displayed below. You just need to answer the question. If you manage to answer a question correctly you will receive 2 entries into the draw. If you manage to guess the answer correctly you will receive 2 entries into the draw. If you get it wrong you will receive 1 entry (just for giving it a try). All entries will be pooled at the end of the month and one winner drawn at random.

If you highlight the question it literally comes up with Tennessee in the answer box. I wonder how you are googling it?

If I copy and paste the question to google then Illinois comes up top of my results. Same when I went to Bing, Illinois was top of the results.

Arkansas, Illinois, Georgia & Kansas are states that have cities called Nashville, but Tennessee is obviously the most well known.
