thank you

Thank you

Question 7 is 3 Christmas Dinners
Question 9 is Aled Jones

But it won't let you select these options, so your score can only be 18/20. Very odd!

The answers I gave are correct, the answers you are trying to give are incorrect.

Question 7
In the Vicar of Dibley Christmas Special of 1996, how many Christmas dinners does Geraldine eat?

comedy.co.uk/tv/…/2/
Later on, Geraldine is inundated with several tempting offers of Christmas lunch, none of which she can happily dodge without grossly offending someone. Reluctantly, she decides she can force down a small serving at each, and so agrees to go to all three: with David and Hugo; Jim and Frank; and Alice, her mum and sister.

Geri politely eats her way through some very big Christmas dinners in order to be nice to her parishioners, before Owen surprises her with a fourth!
-----------------------------


Question 9
Who sang ‘Walking in the Air’ in the 1982 TV film, The Snowman?

en.wikipedia.org/wik…uty
Auty is a former choirboy who sang at St Paul's Cathedral. At the age of 13, he sang "Walking in the Air", the theme song to the 1982 animated film The Snowman. Most people thought Aled Jones was the original singer, but his version was a cover of the song released as a single in 1985. Auty's version, which was recorded especially for The Snowman, had been released as a single two years earlier. Due to a rush to finish the film on time, Auty was not credited on the film until it was remastered in 2002.

Telmealing - 12 is an incorrect answer, I think that you have misunderstood the question.

How many gifts in total are given in the classic song, The 12 Days of Christmas?

intmath.com/blo…686

Notice that on each day there is one partridge (so I will have 12 partridges by the 12th day), and each day from the second day onwards there are 2 doves (so I will have 22 doves), and from the 3rd there are 3 hens (total of 30 hens), and so on.

So, how many presents are there altogether?

Partridges: 1 × 12 = 12

Doves: 2 × 11 = 22

Hens 3 × 10 = 30

Calling birds: 4 × 9 = 36

Golden rings: 5 × 8 = 40

Geese: 6 × 7 = 42

Swans: 7 × 6 = 42

Maids: 8 × 5 = 40

Ladies: 9 × 4 = 36

Lords: 10 × 3 = 30

Pipers: 11 × 2 = 22

Drummers: 12 × 1 = 12

Total = 364

---------------------------------------

So when you clicked 12 which is incorrect, it will then display a tick against the right answer 364 and at that point you cannot change your answer and you therefore have lost the mark.

The end date is simply an error from copying across last years competition and I believe it should say 20th december 2016.
