The alphabetical Questions

Rory is again testing our trivia knowledge. Here is a new set of questions:

Alphabetical Questions

Can you answer these questions and then can you make a 8 lettered word/s by using the first letter of each answer?

Now l know there are 26 questions, so there are lots of first letters from the answers here, there should be plenty of words you can make with 8 letters. Some answers, not many have two words as the answer, however, YOU are only using the first letter of the first word of that maybe two worded answer.

Also, you don’t have to answer all 26 questions, you may be able to create an 8 lettered word or more with the Letters from the questions you have answered correctly. However the 26 questions do offer you a broad selection of letters.

So what am l actually looking for?

Well that’s down to you – you can make a post should you wish displaying both the answers to the questions and your 8 letter word/s [If you can make more than one], or alternatively you can simply pop your answers into the comments section below.
