    General Knowledge competition.

    I have been lumbered with organising our General knowledge competition and though I have acumulated a few questions, I would like some more.
    Below is some that I have already used for level 1( Phatom 1,2,3) and Level 2( Phatom 4,5,6)
    Can you give me some more please?

    I have about 20 pages of questions, but they are for Level 3 (EP). My Level 3 team won the local competition, but were stumped by:

    Where is the Statue of Liberty located?
    Ans. New York City

    Is that what your lot put, or did they put Ellis Island, and the answer should have been NYC

    I was only coaching my school's entries. My school's winning team I believe answered Paris. (Hey, I'm their English teacher, not their social studies teacher ). I heard this second hand, as I was with my school's skit team during the Quiz Bee competition.

    The competition was held in Chonburi, and I assume someone at the host school drafted this question with NYC being the answer.

    The Statue of Liberty is not on Ellis Island, nor is it in New York City. It is on Liberty Island in the State of New York, but is not within the city limits.
