The 30 Day April Quiz Challenge

This month we are having a quiz. Each day in April 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 get the question 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.
The competition started on 1st April 2018 and runs until the end of the month. The last question will be shown on 30th April 2018, with the winner being announced here on 1st May 2018 at 11am. The winner will then have 24 hours to claim their £10 cash prize.

 

You open a bank account and receive 3% interest on your savings.  You pay in £100 (your balance is £100), what will your balance be at the end of the first year ?

You learn something new every day! I love questions that I don’t know the answers to as I have to look them up. This is the 3rd one this month, and I’ve never even heard of the man despite his website being one of my favourites. Much more interesting (to me) than the year Gillian Anderson was born, lol.

Same thoughts as below, so picked main one.

Surely a junction, by definition, is on more than 1 road but I have answered the main one 🙂

allicat

Exactly what I thought. I did the same.

Phil
Member

Indeed. Four roads at least! I have put all of them. Do we get a point for each?

Ruskin
Member

Doh! I didn’t think of that Phil! Lol

I have submitted my answer twice as I put the answer in, pressed submit then looked, God knows what the first digit was meant to say, so my second answer is my answer please

I hope this isn’t a trick question & you just mean how many zero’s in the written number not some attempt to divide by zero!

“How many days are there in a leap year? – 366” I put 29 because I was thinking of February!!!

Maggie
Member

🦋purplevamp, you’re not alone, I put 29 as well because I was thinking of February also !! At least we get 1 point for our wrong answer ! 😳🤣🤣 I wonder how many others put 29 as the answer as well as us ?🦋

The answer to yesterday’s question should have been ‘There isn’t one’ or ‘none’ because Mr Lees’ fast food takeaway was founded in 1863.
Sorry to be pedantic lol (just saying).
I obviously knew what you meant though Daniel and got the answer right although I again wondered if it was a trick question lol.
Am I taking this too seriously?!? lmao 🤔😂🤣😂
