I'm not quite sure how these quizzes work, so here are my answers:

1. Boris Johnson
2. A bendy bus
3. The Gherkin
4. Nelson's Column
5. Camden Market
6. The A406
7. The River Fleet
8. The congestion charge
9. The O2
10. Number 9 Downing Street

Now what are the questions?

No 9 is wrong as the tube station at the O2 wasn't open in 1863 so Great Portland Street would be better.
Assuming he asks a question to do with the Underground 150 celebrations.

Well if you can't think up questions to fit my answers, I suppose I'd better have another go. I've read the rules now - it's sort of like "Pointless" but without the 100 people polled, right?

[This may have given me an idea for a new type of quiz though. Watch this space.]
