  2. 1. 29.
    2. (I’m assuming you want us to spell the unfinished word) Odor is the American spelling, I believe. We spell it odour. (But for some reason, Google Chrome comes up with a red squiggly line)
    3. Incorporated.
    4. China. (they also massacre dogs too)
    5. Python is a tricky one, I remember the vowel song from year one: “A E I O U and sometimes Y”. So, if you’re counting y as a consonant, there are 5 consonants, if you’re counting y as a vowel, then there’s 4 consonants.
    6. All signs point (general knowledge, double checking it with google) to it being a glacier, EVEN THOUGH a glacier is ACTUALLY a huge chunk of ice in a river, not a river that’s made from ice and is slowly moving. Eh.
    7. Here’s the tricky part. A bullseye is NOT a number, so that would mean there are twenty numbers on the board (it goes 1 through to twenty, not necessarily in order). However, if you mean how many sections for the numbers there are excluding bullseyes, then there’s two for each number, making it forty.
    8. (yes we just started our time unit in maths) 21 hours. (And I found out that the answer to that what is 12 am in 24 hour time question from waaay back last year is 2400, because 12 am is 2400, but 12:01 am is 0001 hours)
    9. Random-Access Memory (I love being a geek).
    10. The correct spelling is bouquet/s.

    Oh look, I’m here.
