TSR News Quiz of the Week #146 (4 May 2024) *Local elections special!*

Welcome to your TSR News Quiz of the Week!


Welcome to the hundred-and-forty-sixth instalment of the News Quiz of the Week series, which has been running since 2020! With the local elections having taken place these last few days, this week is a local elections special!

Visit the master thread for more details of the series, and to sign up for notifications when a quiz goes live!

How it works
This quiz is conducted on a multiple-choice basis via Microsoft Forms, and you have until next Friday at 00:00 to play the game. The form will ask you to fill in your TSR username, and this is essential if you want to be in contention for the prize! Please feel free to comment and share your scores below this also makes verifying the scores easier!

The tiebreaker question is a free-typed question where the answer is a number. If there's a tie for first place, the winner of the prize will be the person who gets closest to the correct answer. (And it can also help us spot anyone who looks like they might have received help from the internet as they did the quiz!)



Scoring
The form will automatically score the quiz for you. The prizes awarded are as follows:
:king1: 100 rep
:king2: 50 rep
:king3: 30 rep

Happy quizzing!
