Ultimate Swiss Quiz
 
https://www.playbuzz.com/newlyswisse...ional-day-quiz

I got 4 out of 10 and, of those 4, 3 were guesses.

I never claimed to be the sharpest knife in the drawer :D.

How did you do?

Same here, 7 right.

The "top of the world" and the football questions stumped me.

By the way, there are only 9 questions.

I counted 10. Granted, Maths aren't my forte either...

Actually you're right - it only shows 9 at the top of the screen though. Your maths is better than mine ;)

Then you need to do the upgrade to Windows 10.

So six guessed, and the one about the fire at Montreux was a dead cert ;)

7/10 for me too.

But I did learn something - I always thought that Ursula Andress was Swedish, so much that I had google to confirm, cos I didn't believe the quiz.

Agreed, not bad. But the most recent question was about an event in 1971, so living abroad hasn't hindered your ability.

But if the quiz had asked "What percentage of subsidy did the SBB / CFF /FFS enjoy in 2014?" - that would be a relevant question for the National Holiday.

Hope you got number 3 correct Miss Marple.

Likewise, only one a guess (the St. Moritz one)

I missed the ZH-Baden line, the world cup (as if I care about soccer), and the Escher-SKA one.

I did!!!

That was my one and only dead cert :band:


I'm basking in my ignorance.

8 here but a few were lucky guesses based on vague memories.

Ursula Andress is from the Bern region, Ostermundigen. Michelle Hunziker, the other famous Swiss blonde also comes from Ostermundigen.
