WooHoo, I got 30/30!

Google is your friend, along with Wikipedia (as long as you double check it).

Thanks to all involved in making the quiz, it was fun. Thanks to the sponsors for donating the prizes.

Good luck everyone.

Click on the quiz (like you were going to take it again) and you should see the correct answers as well as what you answered for each question...work through the whole thing and at the bottom it will tell you your score and how many entries you've gotten.

Cheers!

Go to the quiz page and it will show you your answers, along with the correct answers. At the bottom of the page it shows you how many you got right.

Thanks heaps mnm and wavelandscott!!! Was desparate to see the answers, but the more I looked, the less I found! Got that nova question wrong - it isn't that obvious - or is it???!!!

I have learned a lot of interesting things from the quiz, it was well worth the time and challenge, and thank goodness for the net!

Thanks again to the organisers and sponsors.

Ok some stats:

- 212 entries
- Highest score: 30/30 (DaveM, mnm, ghsmith45, iluvsaturn, wavelandscott, Chrissyo, slice of heaven, astro_south, SMR)
- Lowest score: 7 people got under 10, though I suspect they just pressed submit without trying to answer them.
- The "easiest" question was Q28, with 95% of people getting it right. Q25 wasn't far behind. (not counting Q1 for which everyone was marked correct).
- The "hardest" question was Q11, with only 48% of people getting it right. Q17 wasn't far behind, with only 52% of people getting it right.

Here are a couple of graphs, showing the distribution of the score's people got (expected for an easier quiz), and also a graph showing the percentage% of people that got each question right.

Regarding the draw, I won't be able to do it next week as I have a very busy week with work (going to Perth) and holidays as well. I'll be looking to do the draw in the week starting 8th October.

I'll keep you updated, sorry for the inconvenience and making you wait!

Well done everyone and i'm glad you all enjoyed the quiz, and hopefully learnt something from it too.

LOL my daughter Elizabeth(Astro Girl) basically did Ingo's trick and just selected all the last answers except for a couple that she guessed and got 16/30.

I throughly enjoyed the quiz, 28/30, (well how was I supposed to know the focal ratio formula , j/k).

Thanks to Mike, Terry, Paul and Dennis for organizing the quiz and to our generous sponsors for the prizes.
