The fourth round of the November quiz was themed: each question consisted of nothing more than the names of three cities/towns/populated places, and for a point, teams had to name the river on which those places sit. In each case, the first named place is the closest to the source, and the last named is closest to the mouth – but the places named aren’t necessarily the most famous settlements on that particular river! How many can you get on your own? No online searching! The answers are at the bottom of the page, below the music video – use your mouse to highlight the text to read the answers.
