Samuel Johnson's Dictionary.

I clearly know it very badly - 3/10 - so not hard to beat!

Well if I had read to the bottom of one of the questions I'd have got four :wink:

What did they tell us at school about reading exam papers all through before starting?

In spite of reading your post before I did the quiz, I fell into the same trap. Possibly with the same question! :lol: :roll:

Less excuse for me.

:D That's very honest of you Lucy. Clearly your guesses were more educated than some of us managed!

I managed 6/10, although I didn't actually know that many answers. Multiple choice helps a lot, coupled with lots of practice at eliminating wrong answers, and thus increasing the chance of a correct one, by playing regularly on FunTrivia.

As you know, I play on Funtrivia, too, but it doesn't seem to have helped me much! :lol:
