The 31 Day August Quiz Challenge

This month I have decided to run a quiz.  Some of the questions you may know the answer to immediately, others you may need to go searching to find the answer to the question.  Each day in August a new question will be displayed below.  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 August 2017 and runs until the end of the month.  The last question will be shown on 31st August 2017, with the winner being announced here on 1st September.  The winner will then have 24 hours to claim their £10 cash prize.

Thanks for my quiz win! Hopefully the claim went through ok as it’s still saying “not yet claimed” but I definitely went through everything, just let me know if I have to do it again or anything. 🙂 Definite bonus as I’m recovering from a throat infection right now so been getting knocked out by antibiotics this week. 🙁

Another tricky question today – the name of the Island in 1892, it’s later name or the one it is currently commonly known as? I think I have covered all bases in my entry anyway, lol

Francesca

Is today’s question looking for the year it was first introduced to financial markets or the year Euro notes and coins entered circulation?

Susie

Wish I’d seen this yesterday, thought the question meant when it was the physical currency which was 2002. 🙁

I actually didn’t without cheating via Google (I & my kids are too old, lol) but the question asks what it is – not what it’s name is 🙂

🦋 Daniel, as Susan so rightly says there were 3 actresses for #24 but the question doesn’t say whether it is the 1st, 2nd or 3rd actress so I’ve put the “adult” actress and the other 2 actresses I’ve named in brackets as I’m making sure I’ve covered all my bases.😉😂😂🦋

Susan
Member
Susan

There were 3 actresses who voiced her. I how the one I chose was when Anna was an adult.

Maggie
Member
Maggie

🦋 You’re absolutely right Susan and I think/hope/pray that Daniel is asking about the adult version but as I wasn’t too sure I also named the other 2 in brackets to cover myself but no doubt Daniel will tell us which one he wanted😂😂Good Luck🍀🤞😀🦋

Maggie

Hi Daniel, the city now known as New York was named Nouvelle (New) Angouleme in the early 16th century, & not re-named New Amsterdam until the early 17th century.

There seems to be some dispute about where soda bread originated but the majority of reputable sites say it was in with the Native Americans

Stuart

Soda bread originated in the USA in 1796.

In Europe it appeared in the mid 19th century

I see that you give Elvis Presley’s middle name as ‘Aaron’.According to my ‘reference books,hiis name is spelt ‘Aron’.I remember thinking it a weird way to spell it when I firsst came across it as a teenager.
