Take the Which? Conversation June Quiz

It’s the end of the month! How much do you remember? Test your knowledge and tell us your score in the comments.

It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through 2021.

Over the past month we’ve seen the delay of easing lockdown restrictions across the UK until July, and countries moving to and from the green list for travel. You may have a chance to pay for your shopping with one of the new Alan Turing £50 notes – assuming of course the retailer is still accepting cash.

Also, football.

Lots more happened in June though – how much do you remember? We’ve picked 10 questions from the consumer news and conversations on Which? Conversation and elsewhere on Which.co.uk. Can you score 10 out of 10?

Good luck!

All links in this quiz open in a separate window, so you’re free to explore deeper without losing your place.

Re: Which of these appliances is not currently covered by the new ‘Right to Repair’ laws?

I realise there is a drive to allow more items to be repaired – and as a dabbler myself I’d not hesitate to attempt to repair any of the items listed. However, there has to be some care. A botched repair of a refrigeration appliance could see a significant atmospheric discharge of CFCs, and a botched repair of a Microwave oven could see microwaves leaking out.

Be careful what you wish for. Part P electrical safety approval was introduced to prevent botched electrical installations; I would argue that extending a ring main is easier to get right and with less chance of anything catastrophic than, say, regassing a fridge to the correct volume/weight of the right refrigerant and making sure it isn’t leaking or repairing/replacing and adjusting correctly a microwave oven door interlock microswitch without risk of leaks around the door seal either during operation or when opening the door mid cycle.
