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.
