    Hi, something went wrong with question 4. The answer should be Bathesheba opens Gabriel Oak's shepherd hut, not "Mr Boldwood".

    I made a spelling mistake in my Silas Marner quiz, Q12. It should have been mousy, not mousie.

    Thank you. No matter how often I check, typos always seem to get through:
    Q1 answer 3 should say "containing" instead of "contain".
    Q12 answer 3 should say "hear from Mr Candy" instead of "hear of Mr Candy".

    The quiz was a nice idea, kev. I took it and noticed that I have forgotten everything about The Moonstone.

    Thanks Danik. You got the question about what type of stone it was, right?

    I think, yes. I got 7 out of 20. But those I got right were out of deduction. I don´t even remember the names of the figures.
