    What did you get for q15 about the area of a square in a circle?? (I got pi/4)
    I got the same but it's wrong. I made way too many careless mistakes on this paper

    Do you think the boundaries will be lower or higher than last year?

    I think the thresholds will be higher because last year they were very low!

    Our year at school had a literal war over that question! I was alone in my answer of 11... Apparently it was right. I notice you said Tegwen and HIS, I used Tegwen as a girl! We spent a long time at lunch discussing her gender...
    Tegwen is a girl's name....

    We didn't know. There were a few people that used her as a brother(don't ask me why) and we weren't allowed to keep our papers. So the arguments began.

    What if Tegwen and their brothers and sisters were grown up? Then there would be 0 children.

    I didn't actually know it was a girl's name and we're not allowed to keep the paper. I'm pretty sure it said she so I worked It out like that. Yet I misread the question so my answer is wrong

    Oddly enough that's the question our school went to war over- not any of the harder ones!

    We all pretty much gave up on the harder ones - we usually have only like 1 person who goes to the next round.
    Some people put 5 which I was just confused about.
    We did argue about a couple of the harder ones and the fun ones (like the one with the circles and the number from 1-18)


    What did people put for the 2016 Liars and truth tellers question?

    I never do those questions, I just don't get the logic.

    Only one of them worked- the last one.
