Gravedodger got 5 (with a bonus for his acknowledgements).

Rob got two right plus 1/2 for #3; 2/3 for #4, a bonus for lateral thinking and humour for #1 and another for humour for #4.

    Bother! Next time I’ll just be quiet…

    One of the pieces of advice I give students who are doing multi-choice tests is to stick with their first answer. Scientists say / studies have shown / statistics prove that if you change your answer on a multi-choice question, you are more likely to get it wrong. So I suggest to them that if they are unsure about a question, to leave it to the end and come back to it, and then to make a choice, and leave it at that.

    I virtually always get someone saying to me, ruefully, that they wished they had taken my advice.


  2. Andrei says:

    To be a little pedantic perhaps Ele the books you listed are the last seven in the Protestant Canon

    The last seven in the Catholic canon are:
    Malachi, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Baruch, Lamentations, Ezekiel and Daniel

    and the Orthodox Canon has:
    Isaiah, Jeremiah, Baruch, Lamentations of Jeremiah, Epistle of Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel
