I think the number of points one gets (1-5) is adjusted to the average number of right answers scored after every take. That is the reason why there can be noticeable "fluctuations" of points shortly after a quiz gets featured.

Usually it wont fluctuate that much on the same day (all the comments were from the same day), but since in this day it is the first day it features (I think? or was it a feature before and just got an update?), it might have something to do with it, that benjamin was one of the first after reset.

It is a few minutes before midnight here though and I got 2 points aswell for 12/18. So so far that remains the same.

I kept trying things like Brokal, Brokul, and Brokol Haram, then I realized I was confusing them with the band Procol Harum. I never did get the right answer because I kept adding that r in there where it didn't belong.

As far as I know Boko Haram never skipped the light fandango nor turned cartwheels across the floor.

I thought for sure the 2/3rds of state revenue question would have been tariffs on gold exports from Nigerian princes.

I've been happy that the Nigerian economy is doing so well. Then I saw the line about 2/3 of state revenues coming from oil exports. Uh oh. No bueno.

Based on my (limited) knowledge of the Nigerian oil industry, it's both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it drives the economy and has allowed Nigeria to surpass many other African countries in terms of development. On the other hand, it's an incredibly corrupt industry and has contributed to a lot of environmental degradation.

I think one of the few things that has stuck with me from Things Fall Apart is that Nigerians are obsessed with yams.
