Thanks to all who responded, including Mr Fabian who had most answers correct. Mr Zainal Abidin had all, except one incorrect answer.

Mr Michael Bangar got them all correct. Congratulations Mike, the only one.

The others I shall not mention since most are anonymous and had quite a number wrong.

I thought it's simple but apparently, it's not.

It's only for fun. Keeps our head in place.

Thanks also to two sporty ladies. They tried but both found the quiz difficult. I guess you were both too young to know the answers.

Ms Swee Leng and Ms Koh Sui Pang found the quiz on the tough side.

Thanks also to the others who attempted it. Appreciate the time you all took with the TRIVIA.
