    yeah the only real difficulty here is that grover cleveland was the 22nd and the 24th president... so should be 42 men in 43 presidencies for the 3rd question?

    Yes, that's one trap. The answer to #1 will also impact on answer #3.

    The date of the Declaration of Independence covers a lot of dates. Are you referring to the date which it was signed?

    I was under the impression that it was signed on the 2nd July but it seems there are many plausible dates other than 4th july! Apologies.

    PLEASE IGNORE Q.4
