WTF?!
What is the name of the level 1 legend?
I chose Chapter 1, as it was the only coinciding possibility. Here is the result:
Wrong answer! The correct answer is: Prelude.
There is no legend with this name. First episode is called Prologue!
Whoever did this question and whoever approved it are retarded or f*** blind

Cruel.

Never mind the spelling - Motorola is/was a mobile phone and telecoms company. Surely that wasn't marked right?

The question was „One of the following companies is not a major petroleum service company, which?”
Well, the correct name would be Motorola, however it is not a petroleum company with double 'l' either.

There was a bug which caused it, but the programmer already fixed it. Hopefully it works correctly now.

When was the first winter Olympics organized?

the first winter olympics was held in 1924. i imagine it was organized for several years preceding, which are including as incorrect answers. i would either change organized to held or change the answers to a wider spread that does not include the years immediately preceding the year it was held.

"Which isn't a mythological creature?"

Griff is listed as an incorrect answer. i presume Griffin is what was intended. since there is no such creature as a Griff - real or in myth - it would be a second correct answer.

to solve the problem:
Griff-->Griffin

Who's the actress playing in Pretty Women? Julia Roberts.
the movie is Pretty Woman, not Pretty Women.
the actress is Julia Roberts; she was playing Vivian Ward.
suggested change:
Who is the lead actress in Pretty Woman (1990)?

What planet is the brightest object in the night sky?
[not quoting question perfectly... hard to remember amidst quiz olympics]
