Do you read newspapers? Are you familiar with "The Times"? You can check here, if your local freesheet is enough for you, or if you have international knowledge.
Please note: it is, of course, possible, that there is a small, local paper somewhere, which is named the same as one of those mentioned in our quiz. But the latter are alltogether bigger and at least of regional character.
We give you 10 questions, each divided into 3 parts. And we give you 6 answers. Make your choice and write down your answers. For every correct answer you get 1 point. If you answer correctly on all 3 parts of the same question you get 1 extrapoint, that is 4 points on that question.

All set? Good luck!
