# Every final question on ITV The 1% Club so far - including the 'hardest ever'

The 1% Club is back on our screens tonight with another 100 contestants competing to win up to £100,000 - but how often can you answer the final question? We've rounded up every final question - the hardest ones that only 1% of the popular are supposed to be able to answer - that has been on the show so far during series three.

The popular ITV quiz show, hosted by Lee Mack, sees the questions get progressively trickier. Rather than standard knowledge questions you can learn at school or find out in a book, the questions on the show are based on logic.

Players start off with a question 90% of the public got right, but get harder as the game progresses, all down to a question that only 10 people in 1,000, or 1%, got right. And you only get 30 seconds to lock in your answer.

The final 1% questions from every show so far this series are below. How many can you get right?

### Episode 1

The series kicked off with a bang as Hillal won big on the show as she joined The 1% Club. She had made it through to the final with Thomas, but was given a straight shot at the money after he chose not to play on.

Hillal nailed the question, winning a massive £98,000. She was so stunned by her win she didn't say a word and had tears in her eyes.

But can you can get it right? (Don't scroll down too quickly or you'll see the answers below the picture question)

The question is: What letter completes this sequence?

SMHDWM?

The answer: They are initials of units of time - Seconds months hours days weeks months years

### Episode 2

Clint was the only one to make it through to the final question, meaning he would walk away with 97k if he answered the last question correctly, or walk away with £10k. The money proved too tempting and Clint didn't take the gamble.

The question is: Which number replaces the question mark below?

100-2

71+5

54x1

31+1

2x?

Clint was given the chance to answer the question just for fun, and he made the right decision to walk away as he told Lee he had 'not a clue'.

The answer: Lee explained the sums work out as 98, 76, 54, 32 - so the next one must work out as 10 to complete a sequence of 9876543210.

### Episode 3

Four remaining players made it through to the final question - and all chose to play on. But it was a disastrous round as three admitted they hadn't even submitted an answer and one answered incorrectly.

Will you have better luck?

The question that stumped the players is: What two letters can be placed before both of the below to make completely new words?

Car

Able

The answer: VI - making Vicar and Viable.

### Episode 4

A whopping six players made it through to the final question - almost unheard of for the show. And five of them answered this final question correctly.

It was dubbed 'the easiest 1% question ever' by viewers at home. But how will you fare?

The winners split £94k between them, meaning they took home £18,800 each.

The question was: Starting on 25, the middle square, SEEN takes you to square 27. From there, NEW takes you to 20. From there, which square does SEWN take you to? There was then a grid showing the numbers 1 to 49.

The answer: So the words SEEN snd SEWN refer to directions on a compass, South, East, North and West. If you follow those directions around the grid, you'll come to 20.

### Episode 5

Both Maisie and Alex chose not to gamble and answer the 1% question for a shot at £100,000. They both left with £5,000 each instead.

And many viewers were also stumped at home. But can you answer it?

The question was: "Given that: 0+100 =100, 1+99 = 100, 2+98 =100, What is the sum of all the whole numbers between zero and 100?"

Maisie and Alex both guessed 5000, but both got the answer wrong.

The answer: The answer was actually 5050. Lee explained: "There are 50 pairs that total 100 (0&100, 1&99, 2&98 etc.). That makes 5000, but there is also the number 50 in the middle, that is not in a pair but also needs to be counted, giving a total of 5050."

### Episode 6

Five players made it through to the 1% question - and all decided to face it. That decision didn't work out too well for the remaining contestants though as none managed to get it right.

The question was: What connects the following words?

HAUNT

MUMBLE

SONIC

GRANITE

The answer: They all contain the name of family members. So aunt is in haunt, mum in mumble, son in sonic and gran in granite

### Episode 7

This final question was said to be the 'hardest question ever' aired on the ITV quiz show.It baffled viewers - and left everyone in the studio stumped as well.

The question: Contestants were shown the following puzzle and asked to fill in the missing number.

Jamaica + Japan = 124

Argentina + Armenia + 1245

France + Brazil = 23

England + Germany = ??

The answer: The numbers are the positions of any shared letters...e.g Argentina and Armenia share the 1st, 2cnd, 4th and 5th letters. So England and Germany is 56, for the A and the N.

How did you do? Did you make it into the 1% Club?
