One to Ten
Our brainteasers always have ten questions, but this quiz is about the numbers from one to ten. Each question or answer includes one of those numbers – but they are not in numerical order in the questions.

Questions:

2. What is a “one-horse town”?
3. A horizontal figure of which number is the symbol for infinity in mathematics?
4. A tetrahedron is a solid figure with how many triangular faces?

7. In cricket, how many runs are scored by a hit which makes the ball clear the boundary without touching the ground?
8. The Three Kingdoms is a period from 220 to 581 in the history of which country?
9. In the song about the twelve days of Christmas, how many drummers were drumming?
