    One of my year 8 wouldn't have given you an answer even that big... he tends to go for around 5 or 6 for most questions!
  3. But this was a grown up ... someone who presumably has had the capacity to apply for a TV prog

  4. I blame it on poor programme editing. The contestant obviously said "11 when working in base 14" and they cut the end of his/her sentence off
  5. Not when you consider that his other question
