Looks like your formula is giving 27th and 28th place to the non-existent scores of '6' and '7.' i.e., it's expecting the scores to be consecutive and without gaps.

2. Shakespeare's Fools
Name the Shakespeare play given the fool, knave, clown (or funny guy) and the text.

HAPPY FACE :O)
There were no wrong answers on this one. I took 2 different quotes from the same play, but only 1 of you picked up the second one.
I accepted the wrong spelling of A Midsummer's Night Dream (sic), but be careful next time.

A. Largo al factotum
B. Casta diva
C. La donna è mobile
D. Mio Babbino Caro
E. Nessun Dorma
F. Un bel dì
G. Les oiseaux dans la charmille (The Doll’s Song)

Aww man, opera is a category most people aren't hot on but that I know a good bit about, so I was really trying for a singleton here. I thought the Hoffmann one would be the hardest one here, but either I misjudged or two other people had the same thought.

I also know a fair amount about opera, and (in my voice lessons) I have even sung several of the arias mentioned, including the Doll's Song. I too was hoping for a singleton on that one.
