About This Quiz

What could it be? You see them and use them every day but - pull them apart and the pieces can be infuriatingly hard (and loads of fun) to identify!

You can get so used to seeing some objects in their entirely that it never occurs to you that they are actually made up of different parts. Take that sweet-sounding musical instrument with its bridge, headstock and pegs, for example. It's one of the most common stringed instruments around, but few of us ever really stop to look at all the pieces which make it up. 

And, the thing is, that's how it is with many of the items we encounter routinely. Take the quiz to see what we mean!

It's super easy to be stumped when you encounter an item which is normally a part of something bigger. We hope your brain won't be drawing a blank when you see these - even though some of them are a bit tricky. Will you be left scratching your head each time or will you be having some great "A-ha!" moments with these? Go find out!
