Evening WW.

A really brilliant score of 31 correct, not quite a full house, it seems the 'speed of sound' question caught you out, you'll kick yourself when you see the answer.

I've been doing the quiz with Mrs RMJ (hence the late marking), she didn't do as well as you
but did OK seeing she turned 72 years old today LOL.
