General Knowledge 1-100

A quiz for people who get to the end of a twenty question quiz and think, “Oh…is that all?” I set out to write a quiz with a hundred questions, where each question in some way related to the number of that question. Some are easier than others, some are a bit convoluted, some are guessable even if you don’t know the answer, some cover similar topics, some have the same answer as another question (which is why it is a yellow box quiz). I hope you enjoy it. Feedback welcomed.
Answer must correspond with the highlighted yellow box
Some answers are repeated
There are quite a few questions about US presidents and American sports. This is not because I am American (I happen to be British), but because those subjects happen to generate lots of numbers, which do not necessarily come up regularly in other areas. I have genuinely tried to cover a range of topics and have included music, TV, film, science, poetry, geography, history and literature.
