The final vocabulary quiz today, based on the one team that hasn't had a quiz or answer set about it : AUSTRALIA.

 

What are the 4 letter words you can make from the letters in AUSTRALIA ?

There are a lot, so to narrow it down (and make it harder, sorry!), the 4 letter words must contain 2 As.

There are 15 words in total :

-  3 are everyday words

- another 3 are plurals of 3 letter words

so a score of 3-6 is achievable.

 

If you get more than 10 well done!
