It was until March 2017. Mumbai now

I once did a quiz where one of the questions was.... In which city would you find Dum Dum Airport?  We went Calcutta, which is correct, the given answer was Bombay, which is incorrect.  This sort of thing annoys me

When we were in Lancaster we answered the question 'how many species of snake are there native in the UK' with three, but were marked wrong as there apparently were 4. We went through this and I pointed out that a Slow worm which they were counting, is not a snake and the quiz bloke would not have it and refused to check Google when w suggested it. That combined with the discovery that the team of locals cheated on the scoring every week so they won off their mate who set the quiz led to us jacking it in.  

So yes such things are bloody irritating!

Assuming this was a while ago, then you'd have been right to feel aggrieved. Word of warning though.... the corrrect answer is 4, as recently the barred grass snake became classified as genetically distinct from the grass snake.
