A proper Margherita has mozzarella, tomato and basil! I left out the tomato in my answer as I thought that the tomato base wasn’t considered a topping over here, though it is in Italy for a pizza rossa (a pizza bianca doesn’t have a tomato base).

Wendy
Member
Wendy

Found this recipe and it states : For the topping
125g ball mozzarella, sliced
handful grated or shaved parmesan

(or vegetarian alternative)
handful cherry tomatoes, halved

Paul
Member
Paul

its cheese n tomato

Jackie
Member
Jackie

I lived in Italy for 5 years and a Margherita has basil on it as well as cheese and tomato. I can’t speak for the distorted British versions.

Right, I have now bookmarked the page as the last two days I have not received the daily reminder email. It is not in spam neither as I always check that daily. Happened a few times last month too. 🙁

Alison

Yes same here

Christine

Must admit Jackie has a point, but have put 2 toppings, but worried about leaving out the third.

liverpoolgirl
Member
liverpoolgirl

I wouldn’t worry, the question specifically asks about 2 toppings x

Jackie
Member
Jackie

Margherita has three toppings, the colours of the Italian flag. One of them isn’t considered a topping here, but in Italy it is.

Wendy

Ive got this one right, I think, not like question 1 which I mis understood. 😂

Maggie

🦋Daniel, I might have sent today’s answer (#23) twice but it is the same answer I’ve used.☺️🦋

Can the link to the competition in the reminder email be mended please

Ruskin
Member

I’m assuming today you are looking for the widely accepted answer but if you discount annulled marriages (which have therefore been declared never to have been genuine marriages) then the answert is different – & that’s what comes from watching QI! Lol

Maggie
Member
Maggie

🦋Daniel, today’s clue ( #20 ) could be 1 of 2 different words, so I’ve put both as my answer as they both are the same but I’m not sure which one you wanted. Hope this is allowed ?🤔☺️🦋

Ruskin
Member
Ruskin

Please do tell – what was the other one?

Maggie
Member
Maggie

🦋Ruskin, I wasn’t sure which one Daniel wanted so I put both Guinness and Stout😊🦋

The answer to todays question isn’t actually an organ it’s a gland!!
Unless of course it’s a trick question as the correct answer should be NONE!! 🤣😂🤣 T.x

Wendy
Member
Wendy

After googling, it does say that this is an organ.

Maggie
Member
Maggie

🦋Tracy, glad you’re not my consultant or surgeon !😳🤣🤣( only joking ) 😉 where did you see it as being a gland and not an organ ?🤔🦋

Tracy
Member
Tracy

Lol
It was early (for me) when I wrote this and was just thinking of the 5 major organs of the body (in my defence).
It is classed as an exocrine gland as well as a minor organ so I guess we were both right.
Sorry Daniel ☺ T.x

Ruskin
Member
Ruskin

I only ever thought of it as a gland but searching it I found it called a “glandular organ” so maybe I am just out of date (big surprise, lol)

Pancakes are for life, not just for Pancake Day 😁❤️

Karen
Member
Karen

Each year we have pancakes and I always think ‘why don’t we have them more often?’ and then it takes too long to make them for everyone, I lose a couple flipping them and mine are always cold before I get to eat them and then I think ‘ That’s why!!!’ lol 😂

Phil
Member
Phil

We cheat and use instant mix ones. The pan we use is too heavy for flipping, and would probably break the handle, like it does in those home videos clips you sometimes see on TV.

My Dogs called Jupiter. He’s tiny 😂. Did put the right answer though.

What sea creature has three hearts – octopus/squid
I would point out that cuttlefish, (my answer), do as well

liverpoolgirl

Very true. I discovered that too.

Octopus is probably the most commonly known though.

When I click on the link in the daily email to take me to the comp page yesterday and today I get oops page cannot be found. Not sure if the link is broken or others getting this also?

Am I the only one who put 18 as if you add 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 (etc 18 times) that’s 6? I didn’t even think of any other answer. I suppose “how many 1/3’s in 6?” might have been clearer

purplevamp
Member
purplevamp

I put 18, but just to be sure I asked my Daughter, who has just done her GCSE maths. 😉

Jo
Member
Jo

I answered eighteen; never even thought about a different answer!!

Carl
Member
Carl

Wow, alot of people confused about the wording of the first question, has there been a worry of trying too hard to word the second question accurately? Republic of Ireland would have been better!

Jo
Member
Jo

I had a feeling yesterday’s answer would end up being 18 despite reality, as it doesn’t matter what number you have there are only three thirds. One third of 99 is 33, one third of 100 is 33.3 recurring, one third of 6 is 2 and so on. It was badly worded but atleast we still get 1 entry in the comp 🙂

Andrew
Member
Andrew

I don’t understand yesterdays question, surely any number can only be divided into three thirds?

Elsee
Member
Elsee

I thought it was a trick question, my first thought was 18 so I put 3 but it is in fact 18. 1/3 x 18 = 6

Angie
Member
Angie

I also thought ‘trick question’ and after much debating settled on 3.

Mandy
Member
Mandy

Same here. I answered 3, too

tracy
Member
tracy

I ALSO PUT 3 AS ANYTHING IN THIRDS IS 3

Hollie
Member
Hollie

Tracy a third is 1/3. This is not equal to 3.

Heather10
Member
Heather10

I disagree with your answer for question one. I put that there are 2 thirds in 6. You have multiplied 6×3 which is not what was asked. Even if you Google the question it comes up with 2. Can the correct answer be posted on the answer page please

Chris
Member
Chris

Hi Heather, The answer is 18. There is 3, 1/3rds in 1 and then times 3 by 6 to get 18. Hope this helps.

Linda
Member
Linda

I agree with Heather10 the question did not specify a third of 1 it said how many thirds in six.

Aileen
Member
Aileen

Hi Heather. 18 is the correct answer, as Chris has explained. If you Google “how many thirds in 6”, it answers 18, not 2.

Wendy
Member
Wendy

I also put two as the answer, but my husband said it was 18. I replied, you what!, and also googled after posting my incorrect answer, and yes it says 18. I think its me and you that have misunderstood the question. But never mind, we still get an entry for trying.

Hollie
Member
Hollie

18 is definitely the correct answer! It’s basically asking how many 0.33333’s are in 6?

The question asks how many THIRDS (=0.33333333) are in 6, not how many THREE’s are in 6.

Heather10
Member
Heather10

Well the question was not very clear but never mind

Hollie
Member
Hollie

Sorry I don’t agree, unless you read it/understood it as ‘3’ instead of ‘third’, which isn’t the question writers fault to be fair.

JULIE L
Member
JULIE L

I put 2 as well!lol!
