Sample Questions & Answers
The following are some examples of questions from recent Quiz Walks, complete with answers and explanations to help you to understand what to expect.
In reality the questions are easier to answer than might be expected. You have plenty of clues other than that written down on the sheet. The questions are always to be found within the stage that they are set and are always set in the sequence in which the answers are found, which gives you a limited area within which to look. In many cases there isn't too much around to ask a question about, so if you see something, particularly if it is unusual, then it could be the answer - it all depends on how you look at it!
