Quiz #1

I have decided to start a new feature that tests your General knowledge. I am a big fan of trivia and quizzes. I even got a Second Place Best Quizzer from my school in Kalimpong, in my final year there. I got a whole bunch of books as a prize which included an eclectic mix of books including Disgraced, Horror Stories and Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus for some unknown reason. The last mentioned book was promptly borrowed by my English teacher, Mr. Daniels and that was the last I saw of it. Check your scores and let us know your results.
