Unless they took basic chem over 45 years ago and never actually used it, but I scored exactly 20 so maybe your point is valid.

How did I get Sb for Antimony and not I for Iodine? Why do I even know that Sb stands for Antimony? Will GCSE Chemistry never leave me?!

Bet I'm not the only person who tried Kryptonite for K. Well, 20/24 (83%). Not bad for something I haven't thought about since high school way back in the distant past (and didn't think much about it then, either LOL).

Ugh missed tin and antimony, even tried tin for the antinomy one because I knew it was very different letters and starting with s ( and thought b) And I knew could remember antimony ( I looked it up just now bevause i thought it was called something different here, but it isnt, then i thought maybe it was a newer one, but it isnt either. But I really cant remember that one from school)

Plumbum should be accepted as well as lead, as it is the reason the atomic symbol is Pb
