Sure, thank you ... 1 each in first 24 hours. I will go back and add that in.  And, yes, right.

We should be aiming towards a country where no matter where you are you can get around all day with an easy to use, affordable and modern transport system.

1 guess per person in the first 24 hours (unless your first guess is wrong).

When setting quizzes, we usually ask that each person just makes one guess in the first 24 hours to give everyone a 'go' ... allowing a second guess if the first one's incorrect.   We're a bit laid back if people make multiple guesses - so it's less a rule and more a set of guidelines!
