I tried that too. We should make demopilot be a word so this quiz has to accept it.

Definitely some challenging clues - esp. since I had never heard of precalculus.

The -parent, -fusion one caught me out because I kept trying words like godparent, grandparent, step-parent and so on even though it isn't pronounced as such

Nice one ! I only missed 3, meta, micro ( though I have tried macro and thought I tried micro) and hydro, though my last word before the timer ran out was water...

All pretty doable, but you don't see them instantly (not all anyway) that's what makes a nice quiz :)

Never heard of superannual and precalculus though, then again english is a foreign language to me.

(btw spellchecker does not recognize precalculus either I see, it wants a space or hyphen)

(maybe it is not a term/thing in the uk? the suggested spellings from my spellchecker are in british english. I know different education systems often have different names for things. Any brits around that can confirm or deny if precalcus is a thing in the uk? and if it is written as one word without hyphen?)
