Claimed   50/50

You are incorrect. The question asked how many nanometers are in a centimeter. Not a meter. A centimeter is 10^-2, while a nanometer is 10^-9. Ergo there are 10^7 or 10,000,000 nanometers in a centimeter.

Not all the answers are right for example a nanometre is a billionth of a metre not a 10 millionth.

Thanks Copasetic

Right wing, it had also  been addressed in a post at the top of the page... (Link)

What other questions were incorrect?

"The Chubb's are a clan of miscreants, a bunch of evildoers, bad eggs and villains. They were formed in the early 17th century when Junior Chubb's Great-great-great-great (etc.) -Grandfather Artemis Chubb (who was also the town drunk) wed with fishwife Mildred Boffle (who was also the town 'lady of the night'). From that day forth, their descendants have caused havoc throughout the world, from Abdul-Hakin Chubb of the UAE and Vladislav Chubb of Russia, to Chang-ying Chubb of China and Alvaro Chubb of Argentina, and of course, the one and only Junior Chubb."  -  WillSoMysterious 2012

There are some very good scores coming in, well done to the full marks brigade.

Don't forget to leave an apple on my desk on the way out.

39/50!

I admit that in some of them I've been helped by the Greek references (unfortunately I don't know Greek, but I studied the basics at high school).
Anyway, it's sad that, while reading them, sometimes I felt a "wall" between my knowledge and what I remember now. Further, some of the wrong answers I gave were among the easiest of the test!

Good link Junior Chubb!
