Thank you WW, hope you had a nice tea/supper/evening dinner.

I was surprised at your answer for Q21 which was Pate then Mushroom Duxelles.
It is of course wrapped in pastry.

I have seen some Beef Wellingtons where the pate and mushrooms are indeed wrapped around the beef, and some just have it on the top, and some don’t have any pate and mushrooms at all, so I rather harshly didn’t give you a mark.

Apart from that and the sport question you did superbly
