Default Salt Quiz

The BBC's quiz this week is about salt. (here)

I got 8/10. Nine if I'd read one of the questions properly.

So, how much do we all know about salt?

Haha, 6. (4-6:salt and vinegar.)

8: where does most of UK's salt come from? ---I answered from the sea.
10:Which political leader campaigned against a British salt monopoly?--don't know.

Incredibly the link to the quiz still works, but the number of questions seems to have been reduced to 9. I got 7/9 as I thought salt came from the sea and that a bag of crisps had more salt than a bowl of cornflakes. Does anyone remember what the missing question was?

7/9 for me. To my shame - unrepentant literato that I am - I got the chemical name wrong.

Missed the chemical name; would have never guessed cornflakes (thought it was ketchup); and answered that the most salt came from the sea.
