Nice quiz, but:

1) A king and a queen can also move diagonally in chess, not just a bishop

2) Mercury was also a messenger of the gods. Perhaps specify "Greek gods"?

Thanks

Please accept eyeballs and Mercury. The term Boxing Day is used much more widely than just the UK.

I second this, I said eye and eyeball. The question asks in singular, the answer should be accepted in singular.

Contrary to popular belief, eyes are not fully grown at birth, so that answer should be changed. Here's proof:

Shouldn't that be "body party" not "body"?

"Which body is said to be fully-grown from birth?" - this does not make any sense.

It should be: "Which body PART is said to be full-grown..."

Hi

Nice quiz, but strange wording; surely should say 'body part'

Thank you

the question about the most common letter should come before the question about the body part, otherwise you get it for free. also waaaay too much time imo?
