Access to Albert Club Rounds by format
|One in 4||
This type of round consists of 10 questions each of two parts, the first part of which narrows the answers down to certain possibilities and the second part of which provides the definition of an answer. Alongside each question 9 candidate answers are given.
Three of these answers are right in that they fit both parts of the question; three of which are possible but wrong in that they fit the first part of the question but not the second part; and three of which are impossible in that they do not even fit the first part of the question yet alone the second part.
Against each question scoring may be: a point for a right answer, no points for a wrong answer and a forfeit of any points earned for right answers if you give an impossible answer. So the purpose is to give 3 right answers but, if not, at least avoid any impossible answers.
For instance if the question were:
Which of these Irish counties has a coastline?
then a candidate answer of Mayo would be right (it is an Irish county with a coastline) - one point,
a candidate answer of Roscommon would be wrong (it is an Irish county but it is landlocked) - no points
and a candidate answer of Caithness is impossible (it is not even an Irish county) - forfeit any points earned for the question
