Why does Valentino Rossi race with number 46 ?

Websites list many different reasons for this Italian motorcycle racer. The few people that even know who he is would have trouble knowing which story or website to believe.

According to UNESCO, as of 2010 what percentage of the world's adult population is illiterate?
67%
4%
26%
12%


This seemed like a good piece of trivia, but after a half hour of searching UNESCO's site, I can't find any numbers that match your choices. The most recent data I can find lists almost 80% of the world's population aged 15 years and over is now literate.

Edit: There are estimates published every few years, and from what I can tell, there will be 2010 numbers, but they are not tabulated yet.

What day is the official birthday of racehorses in the northern hemisphere?

Thanks for exposing me to a new fact. I got stuck reading all kinds of horse things. Anyway, I marked as a spelling error since it appears this only applies to Thoroughbred racing. Please add thoroughbred and resubmit.

That is, by far, the best reason for rejection I have ever received. Thank you CG for that, I have a new found respect for you my friend. I shall do a better job of research next time, once again thanks.
Trust is a knife given as a gift but felt being returned it in your back later. Pull it out so you can return the favor or lay there and bleed to death

how many balls are there in an over of cricket ?

I wasn't sure what to do with this one. I marked it as a misspelling. I don't know anything about this sport, but when I search for an answer, I find 4, 6 and 8 as answers. Perhaps someone can offer better clarity.


Edit: Wow, I really didn't get this question when I now see the writer claims the correct answer is 1.

i think the only question here should be for male/female. athletics is track and field to most of the world. when is irrelivant because WR refers to fastest time ever

Voskhod 1

I have no idea what "comic manned" means. Also, Yuri Gagarin was the first man to orbit the earth in the Vostok 1. I'm not sure what you are trying to ask.

And world records are never broken? and "to most" is the same as unambiguous? But yea Male/female is also relevant, but I guess that's covered by the "what".
