Cathy says:
Some very tough questions! Tot up YOUR scores and COMMENT BELOW to tell me how you've done! (You're allowed to check with the books!) 


  1. This year, Cathy, can you do a post with the answers about a week after? It's so irritating to not know wether you're correct or not, and the answers would be nice to know for a few of these. :-)

  2. Yes! that is a very good plan, as I enjoyed this quiz. Cathy,I enjoyed meeting you in October. Remember the two sisters who privately met you in the café before your talk in the Atkinson library? I'm the younger one.

  3. Got them all right :-)
