Qwizzeria Daily #509

Since April 2021, Qwizzeria publishes a 100-question monthly quiz on a wide range of international topics called ‘Qwizzeria Monthly’. Unlike the daily quizzes, this quiz is a paid one. If you wish to take part regularly, then do consider committing to Qwizzeria’s Patreon page. There are loads of quiz content exclusively published on this Patreon besides the monthly quiz.

Moving on to our daily quizzes!

Here is the link for today’s quiz, the 509th edition of Qwizzeria Daily. And, if you need questions (in the text) for yesterday’s quiz, scroll down.
