October 2019 – Quiz – Win £10

This month we are having a quiz. Each day in October 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.

The competition started on 1st October 2019 and runs until the end of the month. The last question will be shown on 31st October 2019, with the winner being announced here on 1st November 2019. The winner will then have 24 hours to claim their £10 cash prize. If you don’t claim your prize by 11am on 2nd November you will unfortunately lose out. No late claims accepted.

Yesterdays question was same as the day before. I answered it correctly so do I still get the point even though it hadn’t updated?

Maggie

🦋Today’s question is misspelt, it should be Aurora rather than Auora 😎, do I get an extra point for this ??😂🦋

sean

sean

yesterdays question was not updated so could not answer it

Christine
Member
Christine

Like others on here I couldn’t answer yesterdays question as site didn’t update before I went to bed. Will we get a point or will yesterdays question be made void?

Paula
Member
Paula

Same here I didn’t answer either cause it was the same question as the day before 🙁

Daniel
Member

Look down a bit, they’ve said a few times to put any answer and you’d get full points.

Andrew
Member

Gave the same answer as yesterday, hope this still counts as two entries?

Wendy

Phil

Not the same question – they haven’t updated yet, so it’s still Friday.

Sally

Phil – it’s supposed to update at 11am 😉

Phil
Member

You know that. I know that. Presumably the organisers know that as well, it’s just the computer that seems to have forgotten.

Andy

There are actually two square roots of 25!

Daniel
Member
Daniel

You are technically correct. The best kind of correct.

Elsee
Member
Elsee

I’ll be interested to see your explanation later.

Mark
Member
Mark

Are you disputing the existence of two [square] roots?
They are (+)5 and -5.

Multiplying two negative numbers gives a positive number, so (-5)x(-5)=25 just as 5×5=25.

Andy
Member
Andy

Correct!

Elsee
Member
Elsee

No, just giving you the opportunity to explain.

Will Korea be accepted rather than North Korea?

Maggie
Member
Maggie

🦋Heather10, I think you’d have had to be more specific as you have both North and South Korea and a woman is the leader of South Korea, either way you still get 1 point because you put an answer. Good luck !😀🦋

Heather10

Should have googled it lol

allicat
Member

I put North and caught the enter key by mistake. At least I get the 1 point for entering even if it was wrong!!

Sally
Member
Sally

I just put 27th for the last one, as October was already specified in the question; hope that’ll be accepted?

Lostkiwi
Member
Lostkiwi

Same here. Only put 27th as the month had already been stated.

allicat
Member
allicat

Ditto. The date was the 27th, the month was already stated.

Wendy

It was there at 1.30 pm yesterday.

Phil

Looks like I put a hole too many.
Well, I haven’t been ten-pin bowling for years.

Elsee
Member
Elsee

Me too

Joe

I’ve gotta admit I tried to be clever with today’s question, Let’s see what happens.

Joe
Member
Joe

Nevermind I just read the question again and now i feel stupid

Phil
Member
Phil

(I think they re-worded the question.)

JULIE

Oooh a 5th Beatle, called Herbie 😀😀

Jane
Member
Jane

I think it should be ‘beetle’ rather than ‘beatle’!!

David
Member
David

There’s quite a few letters before R in the alphabet 😂

Mark
Member
Mark

17, in fact.

But I note that the question has been modified post-publication: it is now “What letter comes directly before ‘R’ in the alphabet ?”

(I don’t think even the ‘smartest’ of smart-alecs would have answered other than “Q” though – not if they really wanted their answer to be marked as correct!)

I hope the month shall be win,win win for me and other contestants???

Susan

Yeah, great start, haven’t a clue what we’re supposed to make of today’s. Hope they are all not going to be like it for the rest of October?

Paul
Member
Paul

Yeah totally stumped , be no entries for me for this 1

Susan
Member
Susan

You have to find out the sum of those numbers, I had to look up what this meant lol maths was never my strong point. It’s all to do with products and sums of a problem, in this case it was the sum and not the product. Sounds confusing but a lot simpler than you think. I bet our children would know better than us adults lol

Wendy
Member
Wendy

Back to school for you, lol, you could of guessed to get one entry. Its two entries for the correct answer. Good luck for the rest.

Susan
Member
Susan

Yes Wendy, we could have guessed if we had a clue what it was all about. I looked up how to get the sum of number and like the other Susan said, it was confusing.

Daniel
Member
Daniel

Literally the first result on google:

Definition of the sum of. 1 : an amount of (money) I paid the sum of $500. 2 : the result of (adding two or more numbers together) The sum of 5 and 7 is 12.

Heather10

I just added them up seemed quite straight forward

Speedmaster

Yup, hardly rocket science….

Mark
Member

You get one entry (in the month-end draw) just for answering, and another for giving the corerct answer.
So, presumably, answering “20” would only be one-entry better than giving, say, “Giraffe” as your guess.
