You are all doing very well on Qs 1 & 3 but on Q2 74% have come up with the wrong answer. Wikipedia can be confusing and you have to ask it the correct question to arrive at the correct answer!

If you want to have a chance of winning, have a look again and try to re-do the competition, if you can.
