8 correct. Considering I despise James Bond, I think that'll do.

9 out of 10, got the Nobel prizewinner wrong. A couple of the right answers were guesses.

Five right, one wrong, four did not even bother to guess.

The "clever" comes from my glasses, and the "clogs" from the Dutch husband :D. Nothing to do with the mushy brain ;o)

How is your knowledge of the Geography of Switzerland? This quiz may test you a bit further, particularly as it in French. I managed 70% in 9m47s with a little help from Google translate :D

Too tough for me ... gave up after half a dozen questions, half right (with some semi-knowledgeable guesses), half wrong.

"Grains and fruit" and they provide RACLETTE and FONDUE as possible answers. Seriously??? :D:D:D

Got 16 right - a few guesses, and a few familiar bits of info. Looks like it's time for me to go explore La Suisse Romande :)

I was rubbish at that one too :msnblush:

Still, I have my health (like my grandmother used to say)

I was a bit better: 9/24, and I knew the answers, no guessing.

Lucky I didn't need to pass an exam to get my passport :eek:

This one is a lot more difficult, despite me being a bit of a geography/map geek !

I got three wrong (the literary quotation, the population of GE/LS and the number of people below the poverty line)... and I got the number of species right purely by chance.

8 on the first, 54% on the 2nd.

Re: Ultimate Swiss Quiz
 
And one that i did get right on the second one said to me -

Vous etes un crack!!

Now, in all my years in Suisse Romande, i have never been called une crack!!

3/10 :(

Right, I reported myself to authorities, I start packing!

PS: although the one about Sherlock Holmes is rather from British culture than Swiss culture, but...

9/10 :D
Got Q3 wrong and guessed Q5 correctly. It helps working next door to the Wankdorf stadium for the footy question ;).
