    Look at the character above the number 7 on your keyboard – that is the topic of today’s quiz

    (1) What is this character called?

    (2) When it was officially part of the English alphabet what position in the alphabet did it occupy?

    (3) It is technically a “ligature” that is a letter created by combining two other letters – from what two letters was it created?

    (4) What did these letters spell out?

    (5) how did it get its current name?

    I can answer only the first question without recourse to Professor Google. Look forward to learning the answers to 2 -5.
