And now to the latest news – we have an update from Spain (thanks, Gino).
Reading included 10 advertisements and the questions were about which ad says they want the user to provide transport, which ad says a user can get a better bargain, so you have to read carefully, because some of the adds had the same ad as answer (or at least I thought that way, don’t know whether I was right till the result comes).
