Unfortunately I missed a few places on the first issue of this quiz. This is an updated version which should be correct. Apologies to anyone who did the first version and wondered why some of the answers here were missing. For anyone from a fahrenheit country who might do this quiz, here are some conversions: 48.5 °C = 119.3 °F; 46.8 °C = 116.2 °F; 27.8 °C = 82.0 °F ; 21.2 °C = 70.2 °F.
