I just got lucky with three of the questions. I suppose avid readers of UK tabloids and zines would probably know all of the answers... assuming that they had a decent memory.

Exactly. If you're going to spend time on a stupid test, it might as well be shorter one.

I went back to look at it again, and this time I got a different set of questions (and this time, the 2nd question has an option pertaining to a dog, and another pertains to Nestle, etc.).

On the one linked to here, I got 6 (would have got 5 but I knew to pick "find his lost dog"). :lol:

Edit: okay I see why; the link given here is to an old version of the quiz, which is created weekly. The first time I had manually navigated to the current one, rather than following the link. You can see the various quizzes in the drop-down panel under "Magazine Quizzes - All in One Place".
