Re: Ultimate Swiss Quiz

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

Re: Ultimate Swiss Quiz

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

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

Re: Ultimate Swiss Quiz

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

Re: Ultimate Swiss Quiz

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

Re: Ultimate Swiss Quiz

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 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

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.

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

Got Q3 wrong and guessed Q5 correctly. It helps working next door to the Wankdorf stadium for the footy question .
