Their answer of dress sizes would definitely be wrong as US sizes are typically 2 less than UK equivalent - i.e. the opposite of the question as given.

According to http://www.85b.org/dress_conv.php it's USA 10 UK 12 I 44

I hasten to add it's not a site I visit regularly.

That website has it wrong. US female clothes sizes are 4 lower than UK sizes (hence the dreaded 'size zero' being a 4 in the UK). The problem must be that the question-setter simply used the first result on Google and took it as gospel. Rookie error. It should have been 10 (NY) - 14 (London) - 44 (Rome)

If the answer had been 'ladies shoe sizes' by the way, it would have been closer - but still not right. UK 9 1/2 = US 12 = Eur 44.

I think another possible answer for no. 2 is Andy Gray.

Why on earth did I think he played for Man City? Okay, ignore me.
