The Ransome related questions are

Section 2, Q. 1 Where: 1. was the ketch Racundra built?

Section 11, Q. 6 6. which unwelcome guest insisted on ‘baby-sitting’ for Ruth and Margaret during their mother’s Scandinavian cruise?

Section 16, Q. 9 9. where did the Callums first encounter Tom, the doctor’s son?

Each section has a theme which if you can determine it opens up the odds of getting other answers in the same section by focussing your thoughts.

I first came across this quiz back in the 1970s when my parents moved to the Isle of Man and a friend ho attended King William's College begged for help. Back then I was unable to answer a single question.

The process was that each pupil was given the test before Christmas and then was expected to research the questions over the holidays and they were retested in January. The improvement between the two scores was an indication of how diligent the pupil was.
