    ANSWERS to QUIZ of the MONTH (October Part 1)

    Here's the latest edition of our QUIZ of the MONTH feature. There are 10 questions, each one with 4 potential answers. Only one answer is correct.

    The Quiz is designed like a poll. The results will show not the correct answers, but the answers that the majority of the participants have selected. For correct answers check back as I will post them at the completion of the Quiz.

    This months questions are from a wide variety of topics ranging from culture and sports, to history and language.

    Please post any suggestions or questions below. I hope you enjoy another session of Jamaicans.com edu'tainment. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/70409-waytogo.gif[/img]

    Progress Report

    As of jus now, the majority of unu have 3 Questions Wrong! Two by a large margin, and one half of unu is on the right track.

    For two of the questions re-read the questions carefully and you should be able to get it right.

    Can you guess which ones they are?

    Also, one of your Kingston dates is a year too much.
