  1. What is the connection between these seemingly unrelated words ? hijack, defence, first, unopened, stupid All of these words contain a sequence of three letters in alphabetical order.
  2. Can you explain how 4 - 1 = 5 ? Roman numerals. IV=4, I=1, V=5. Take the I away from IV leaving behind the V.

  4. Can you prove that you have 11 fingers (for this question, thumbs also count as fingers) ? Start with the little finger of the right hand and count down towards the thumb: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6. Now, say Plus and, using the fingers of your left hand count up 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. So you have 6+5=11.

  7. Again on this day (25th December), what object was stolen from Westminster Abbey and in which year ? The Stone of Scone, 1950.
  8. In which year was the popular Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol written and first published ? 1843.
  9. An easy one this: Who is the main character in the above novel ? Ebeneezer Scrooge
  10. Can you pair up the following carols with their correct tunes (title of carol; tune):
    • O come, all ye faithful; Mendelssohn Adeste Fideles
    • In the bleak mid-winter; Irby Cranham
    • Angels, from the realms of glory; Adeste Fideles Iris
    • Hark! the herald angels sing; Cranham Mendelssohn
    • Once in royal David's city; Iris Irby

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?...
