Is that it? I have a tree in my back garden taller than that.

I loved that quiz but it was hard to figure out what you got right/wrong and what was the right answer

 

That's a bummer

1/2 way there. Only got 5, but I, like some others, aren't sure about which ones were correct.

Thank you for the feedback gents. The tribe has spoken. Makes sense to display the answers visually for this particular quiz and I've tweaked the answer page accordingly. Sample below (with answers blotted out).

I always think it's good to listen to feedback in order to improve. Thank you to all for helping to make the quizzes better 👍

That's a fat tree alright. But it's only 50 metres tall.

'Big Tree' is estimated to be between 50 and 64 metres tall, depending on the source. Whichever it is, the 'Udon Tree' is nowhere near that height.

Can't do a trig calculation from the photo, but there is enough information to make an estimate of the height of that tree.

1. Directly behind the tree is a standard three-storey box frame construction. Building height is approximately 9.5 to 10.5 meters. 

3. Ignoring perspective (for the moment), the tree is 3.3 times taller than the building = 31.35 to 34.65 meters. 

4. Due to the principle of diminishing size perspective, the tree appears larger as it is between the line of vision and the building. Therefore it must be shorter than the raw calculation.

That tree is no more than 30 meters at most, but I I would say less than that.

Thanks BH

 

Some of these quizzes I really like because I learn from them

 

This one was one of the best for that(once tweaked)

 

Thanks
