not necessary. If you knew that the winter games were hosted in Albertville, and you know that these answers begin with a 'B' then it isn't a major stretch to then type Barcelona. Unless you didn't know that the summer games were held in Barcelona in '92 in which case none of this matters in the first place.

I only knew Albertville hosted the 92 winter games, i had no idea Barcelona had the summer games. I thought it was an error in the question.

It's almost as if people can't engage brain for a little while. Albertville doesn't begin with B, so there must be some other place that hosted the Olympics in that year. There is nothing ambiguous about this question. Everything doesn't have to be spoonfed to you, it's ok to be stretched or for you to think. It's also ok if you don't know things.

Why don't you accept both the original (native) spellings as well as the English translations? - The we'll be able to determine exactly how many braggarts actually know their stuff. Then, after a while we may be able to get on with the business of just doing the quizzes, without all the bellyaching!

Stumped by "Britain's highest mountain." Tried "Bump," which sadly didn't work. Turns out Ben Nevis is only 4411 feet. They call that a mountain? I think you should definitely take "Bump" ;-)

According to the OED it needs to rise abruptly compared to the surroundings and be notable or impressive. The UN seems to define one anywhere between 980 feet and 8200 feet depending on the slope and prominence (>300m). Sometimes it only rises a little above a nearby valley/neighbouring peak but is labelled a different mountain usually if it's particularly high. Sometimes not though as Mt Pinchot, OK is 755 feet but is called "Mount". Ben Nevis being the highest mountain on its island has the same prominence as its height and has a pretty steep slope in places, and incidentally has snow on top in summer. I'd say that classes as a mountain.

I think I should be lazy and not bother learning the spellings of things, or to give up after only two attempts at spelling something when I can guess as many times as the time limit will allow. Or to just accept that I didn't get it right #everythingmustbeeasy
