The retired science teacher doesn't answer a simple question about who wants to be a millionaire.


Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Viewers are shocked when the retired science teacher, despite using a lifeline, fails to answer the £ 4,000 worth of "simple" question about chemistry (but would YOU get it right?)

  • Lincoln's Pat Lucas, a retired science teacher, was asked a question about chemistry
  • For £ 4,0000 she was asked to identify a warning symbol with a skull on it
  • Viewers were shocked when she asked the wrong question – despite the use of a lifeline
  • She appeared on ITV's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire episode last night

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Viewers were in "shock" after a retired science teacher failed to identify the toxic chemical symbol.

On the final installment of the ITV quiz show, Lincoln's Pat Lucas, who worked at North Kesteven Secondary School in North Hykeham, was asked by host Jeremy Clarkson: “A skull is a warning symbol that specifically indicates that it is a material acts? & # 39;

It was given the options "toxic, environmentally hazardous, corrosive and flammable".

However, viewers quickly took to Twitter to express their outrage after the retired science teacher misplaced the “simple” chemistry question and left the show for £ 1,000 – despite using a 50/50 lifeline.

“I can't believe the science teacher asked that question wrong, shocking. Such a simple question, "one wrote while a second wrote," How the hell does a science teacher get this wrong? "

In response to the £ 4,000 question, Pat was offered the following options: A) Toxic, B) Corrosive, C) Environmentally Hazardous, and D) Flammable.

"Okay … as a science teacher, I see a lot of this symbol. You would think I paid more attention to it," she said before asking, "Um, can I use my 50:50 please?"

After the lifeline, Pat only had A and C and admitted, “I wish one of the others was gone, I'm sure this is a hazard to the environment.

"So I'll do my best for the environment, final answer."

Bringing the retired science teacher's bad news, Jeremy said, "Well, you're a science teacher, so you could have done this right … But I'm afraid you didn't.

"You just lost a thousand pounds. I'm sorry that I really am. Hope you had a nice minute or two in the chair."

And those who tuned in were baffled that Pat answered incorrectly – even her former students took to Twitter.

“She taught me physics at the NK – no way. As if she misunderstood the science question, "wrote Melissa Poole, while Sam Wray also joked about her unfortunate mistake, writing," To be fair, I have an A! Now I wonder if I should have had more! & # 39;

Another viewer commented, "I can't get over this retired science teacher who doesn't know what the poisonous symbol is," while another writer wrote, "No wonder kids don't care about science when the teacher is about Science doesn't know what the poisonous symbol is. I despised this subject, but even I knew that WITHOUT the options. "
