My friends and I (collectively known as Quiz Team Lazerbeam) finished second in the quiz last night - our highest ever placing. We were only two points behind the winners, and subsequently narrowly missing out on the £100+ booty
We were marked incorrectly for one of the questions, which is this: How many wives is a male muslim permitted to have? (forgive me if the wording is incorrect)
We answered five, as one member of the team is good friends with a muslim guy called Shah and they happened to be discussing it just the other day. But the 'correct' answer was four. We rang Shah and he disputed this, and was reported to be "outraged" at the prospect of somebody denying him a wife
Does anybody know the real answer? It was worth two points - meaning that we would've drawn!
