Windows 7: Intriguing math question on UK quiz show

Intriguing math question on UK quiz show

This question on BBC's 'Only Connect' fascinated me -

what's next in this series

A : one hundred and one
B : one billion
C : one octillion

????

like the panel, I guessed a googol or a googolplex

the answer was 'D : one hundred'

reason - first number containing A, B, C, D

TV dumbing down ? not at the beeb

'googol' was the 1M answer on UK Who Wants to be a Millionaire in 2001. The guy won, but was found to have cheated.

A math quiz
You've seen a SSD for $97. Since you have no money you borrow $50 from your dad and $50 from your mom. $50 + $50 = $100 right? You buy the SSD and get $3 back. You give your dad and mom $1 each and $1 you keep. So you now owe your parents $49 each. $49 + $49 = $98 + your $1 = $99, right?...

In the Accessories folder, there is an item as titled above, which I'm not familiar with. When I select it, nothing happens. I went to Help and Support and found the data about it, and even clicked a link within it to start the panel, but again, it didn't work. Is there a specific service...
